Hi,
I am trying to add Humidity control but failed using Ironbug. I could not find a Humidifier object in Ironbug.
Is that any alternative way?

Thanks,

Hi @TWANG1017

I have added the humidifier and SPM_HumidityMax and Min in this update:
Ironbug_update.v0.0.11.3.zip (258.6 KB)

This is an example: SPM_Humidity.gh (565.8 KB)

Please let me know if this works.

Hi Mingbo,

Thank you so much for that swift update. I tried the Humidifier object and it works.

However, what I realised is that the Dehumidification does not work. I know it is associated with the Controller:Water coil, which in default is controlled by Temperature only, and it should be controlled by TemperatureAndHumidityRatio.

I managed to use ‘Ironbug_ControllerWaterCoil’ to change the control variables, but it turns out the result E+ file keep using ‘Temperature’ without any changes. Is that a bug?

Please see the screenshots. Thanks in advance for your time.

This is the right way setting up the “ControllerWaterCoil”.
