    Dear Peng,

    First of all, congrats for your works!

    Can you explain to me how do you simulate the evaporative cooling effect in the model?

    Thank you

      Hi Angelo,

      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.
