2018-12-20 04:35:38 -0600 marked best answer Estimate Fan pressure rise from ESP

In EnergyPlus, Fan Pressure Rise is an input to most fan objects (e.g: Fan:ConstantVolume).

MEPs will usually give you External Static Pressure (ESP), and rarely Total Static Pressure (TSP).

Since what you should input in E+ is TSP (correct me if I'm wrong), are there any rules of thumb to estimate it from the ESP and basic knowledge of what filters and coils you have, or BHP? That would be useful In early design phases.
