Multiple buildings with central boiler and chiller

Postby Ha_Aria » Tue May 22, 2018 4:09 pm

I am working on modeling a campus with multiple buildings that has a central boiler and chiller in one of the building. Central boiler and chiller provide HW and CHW for all the buildings.
I created models for each building separately with district heating and cooling plant. However, I am not sure how can I model my central heating and cooling plants and consider their part loads effect. is there any way to model all campus in one file with connection to central plants, or can I model my central plant in separate file and use hourly result of district plants from the buildings to calculate boiler and chiller energy consumption.
I really appreciate your suggestions for my situation.
