I’m trying to simulate an evaporative cooling tower in Energyplus. The base case analysis is running fine and I’m able to results. I’m hoping to integrate a passive downdraft evaporative cooling system in my test zone. I wish to see the potential decrease in kWh/m2 upon integrating this system.
Unfortunately, I’m facing some problems. I’m getting two error messages in the RunEnergySimulation component.
The simulation has not run correctly because of this severe error:
** Severe ** ZoneCoolTower:Shower=“EVAPTOWER” invalid Zone Name: “COOLZONE” not found.
The simulation has failed because of this fatal error.
** Fatal ** ZoneCoolTower:Shower errors occurred in input. Program terminates.
I’ve tried various PDEC integration methods with my geometry. What is the proper way to place or design a tower with my geometry?
I’m attaching the Rhino file along with the GH file.
I’m Also attaching the definition available in Hydra for reference.
Thanks! looking forward to your reply.
