Cooling setpoint schedules, openstudio

Hi,

I wanted to know how cooling setpoint schedules worked with a 'Temperature' variable. Do the limits mean that indoor temperatures will always be between those limits regardless of the outdoor temperature?

For my example I need to have schedule for the air conditioners in a office room, on - off, when they are on the room temperature goes down to approximately 20 C but when it is off I have no idea, i.e. it depends on how hot it is outside. Would this type of schedule suit or should I use something else?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

For my example I need to have schedule for the air conditioners (split unit) in a office room, on - off, when they are on the room temperature goes down to approximately 20 C but when it is off I have no idea, i.e. it depends on how hot it is outside. Would this type of schedule suit or should I use something else?

Any help would be very much appreciated!

Any help would be very much appreciated!
