I noticed that the Ideal Loads Air System object generated by honeybee always have the Cooling Limit set to ‘LimitFlowRate’ with the flow rate set to ‘autosize’. I understand that is necessary if i have an outdoor air economizer. But in one of my models (without economizer) that was limiting my cooling capacity and preventing me from achieving the temperature setpoint during certain periods. This was resolved once I manually edited the idf to set the cooling limit to ‘NoLimit’ and rerun.
Is there a way to change the cooling limit in Honeybee without needing to go into the IDF? I want to automate a series of parametric runs and having to manually change the idf will make that impossible.
BTW I found this old discussion that deals with it, but it relates to the older components
