Warning: Design Cooling capacity is zero

Postby sareddy@gmail.com » Fri Nov 24, 2017 12:08 pm

Can somebody help me understand the logic behind the following warning:

The design cooling capacity is zero for Coil:Cooling:Water 5THFLOOR:BED4TO& FAN COIL UNIT COOLING COIL
The maximum water flow rate for this coil will be set to zero and the coil will do no cooling.
Check the following coil design inputs for problems:
Tair, in = 16.7000
Wair,in = 0.300000
Twater, in = 6.7000
Tair, out = 23.8000
Wair, out = 0.600000

I have manually input the chiller capacities and the water flow and air flow capacities for the FCUs but still I'm getting 0 cooling capacity and unmet hours.

Does anybody have a clue?
