Flow rate of Fluid-to-Fluid Heat exchanger

I have modeled primary/secondary loop with fluid-to-fluid heat exchanger according to "Plant Application Guide".
Primary loop includes district cooling & variable pump & heat exchanger and secondary loop includes LoadProfile & variable pump & heat exchanger.
Result shows that heat exchanger demand side flow rate is not same with supply side flow rate which required from LoadProfile. Though the pump is variable one, demand side flow rate is identical for all the operating hours.
How to set heat exchanger to get identical inlet&outlet temperature and flow rate for both supply and demand side?
