kWh electricity or refrigerant

Postby xyliu925 » Sat Feb 09, 2019 11:58 pm

Hi all
After the simulation, in the summary page, under End Uses item, kWh for District Cooling means electricity kWh rather than refrigerant kWh, is that correct?

thanks

Yes, the District Cooling output on the End uses table refers to the electricity consumption in kWh but it is also the cooling load because of the COP=1.

why COP=1? does it depend on the cooling setting we did?
