First of all, congrats for your works!
Can you explain to me how do you simulate the evaporative cooling effect in the model?

In this case I was using “ZoneCoolTower:Shower” from EnergyPlus, but there is some limitation that might affect the simulation result a lot.
I am also testing other methods to simulate the evaporaive cooling effect, such as replacing dry bulb temperature with wet bulb temperature with effect efficiency data from ASHRAE handbook. The third method I am testing is using Penman Equation to calculate the evaporate rate from dry bulb temperature, RH, wind speed, direct radiation, etc.
I will post this research result soon.

Is it possible to take a look to the script for “Zone CoolTower:Shower” ? It will be great.

Here is the EnergyPlus Documents, explaining all the details about “Zone CoolTower:Shower” :
and here is a grasshopper example that Chris made for evaporative cooling tower:
I was basically referring these two.
Hope this helps.
