HVAC System with no Plant Equipment

Hello all,

The building I am modelling receives all of its chilled water and steam from an outside CHP plant. I am only interested in the energy consumption due to the building use and not the plant equipment. So far, the only work-around I have using is setting the boiler efficiency to 100% and using adiabatic piping. I've left all of the other options for plant equipment to the default settings.

Is there an option to do this in open studio or should I just keep my work around? Also, I'm not sure what a work around would be for the chilled water loop, if anyone has any ideas, please share them.

Thanks!
