Read HVAC Sizing - [source code]
This component parses an .eio file from an energy simulation and brings in the sizes of all of the HVAC equipment. -
eioFile [Required]The file address of the eio file that comes out of the "Honeybee_Lookup EnergyPlus Folder" component.
keywords [Optional]Optional keywords that will be used to search through the outputs.
zonePeakLoadObjsText describing the meaning of the zonePeakLoadVals below.
zonePeakLoadValsThe sum of the zone's peak sensible loads on the design days. These are eventually used to size the HVAC equipment that delivers heating/cooling to the zones.
zoneSizingObjsText describing the meaning of the zoneSizingValues below.
zoneSizingValuesThe zone's peak sensible loads multiplied by their respective design "safety" factors (set on the "Energy Simulation Par" component). These safety factors are used to slightly oversize zone heating/cooling equipment and is standard ASHRAE practice.
systemSizingObjsText describing the meaning of the systemSizingVals below.
systemSizingValsValues denoting the size of various central HVAC system elemts (like the primary air loop flow rates).
componentSizObjsText describing the meaning of the componentSizVals below.
componentSizValsValues denoting the size of various zone HVAC components (like zone terminal sizes, heating/cooling coil sizes, lengths of chilled beams, etc.).
coolDesignDayLoadThe sum of the load that must be reomved from the space at every timestep of the cooling design day.
heatDesignDayLoadThe sum of the load that must be added to the space at every timestep of the heating design day.
