> I have a DHW system with external exchanger and external auxiliary heater, so I modeled a Type 60c (TRNSYS 15) with a maximum heating rate (both heater) of 0 W, but I cannot set 0 the number of internal exchanger in fact it gives me an error message, so I have to set 0 the length and the surface of it. There is another option, using the Type 60cnoheat and setting 0 the power of both heater.
> Why?

You can use Type 4 (which is in Thermal Storage/Stratified Storage Tank) 
if you don't have any internal heat exchanger. Type 4 is easier to 
configure and will provide you with the same capabilities in that
