This component parses an .eio file from an energy simulation and brings in the sizes of all of the HVAC equipment.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_eioFile_eioFileThe file address of the eio file that comes out of the "Honeybee_Lookup EnergyPlus Folder" component.Goo
keywords_keywords_Optional keywords that will be used to search through the outputs.Goo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
zonePeakLoadObjszonePeakLoadObjsText describing the meaning of the zonePeakLoadVals below.Goo
zonePeakLoadValszonePeakLoadValsThe sum of the zone's peak sensible loads on the design days. These are eventually used to size the HVAC equipment that delivers heating/cooling to the zones.Goo
zoneSizingObjszoneSizingObjsText describing the meaning of the zoneSizingValues below.Goo
zoneSizingValueszoneSizingValuesThe zone's peak sensible loads multiplied by their respective design "safety" factors (set on the "Energy Simulation Par" component). These safety factors are used to slightly oversize zone heating/cooling equipment and is standard ASHRAE practice.Goo
systemSizingObjssystemSizingObjsText describing the meaning of the systemSizingVals below.Goo
systemSizingValssystemSizingValsValues denoting the size of various central HVAC system elemts (like the primary air loop flow rates).Goo
componentSizObjscomponentSizObjsText describing the meaning of the componentSizVals below.Goo
componentSizValscomponentSizValsValues denoting the size of various zone HVAC components (like zone terminal sizes, heating/cooling coil sizes, lengths of chilled beams, etc.).Goo
