Component in series from a demand sub-loop to another supply sub-loop

Postby kpx » Wed Dec 19, 2018 2:55 pm

I'm trying to model a water-to-water heat pump, with the source side that is the return from another hot water loop. There is a way to do this in design builder? I thought fluid-to-fluid heat exchanger could be the solution, but you can place it only in the supply sub loop of first hw loop, just before the boiler, than you cannot use it in the supply sub-loop of the second loop (w-w heat pump source). you cannot as well link the unit terminal outlet (first hw loop, demand side) to the inlet source side of the w-w heat pump (second loop, supply side), since "Error in HVAC definition" happens. Please advice. Alessandro
