Objet: [TRNSYS-users] Mistake in Type 19 conduction input wall?
Hello,
I believe there is a mistake in the formulation of the conduction input wall for Trnsys Type 19, can someone confirm?
Equation 4.8.3.22 in the manual states that X_i=(Q_i/A_i +s_i)/hc_i for conduction input walls and that the equivalent temperature should be used in calculating Qi or else the effects of absorption of radiation on the inside surface would not be correctly accounted for.
Equivalent temperature includes effects of s_i and the longwave radiation from other surfaces. Wouldn't including s_i in equation 4.8.3.22 be double counting of the absorbed radiation on the surface if T_equivalent is used? If we use zone temperature instead of equivalent temperature, the effect of longwave radiation would not be included.

Objet: [TRNSYS-users] PID controller
I am creating a project with a PID controller that mixes two air streams to
maintain a set hum. ratio, then heats the air mixture in a crossflow heat
exchanger. The mixing of the air streams is controlled by the PID and works
well as long as the inputs into the heat exchanger are constant. When I add
a pump onto the hot side of the heat exchanger with varying conditions, the
simulation will not run. I get a series of warnings about (TRNSYS Message
315) connection sequences. Has anybody else had a similar problem with
version 16? Any ideas on how to fix it?
Thank you,
MIke Matheus

Objet: Re: [TRNSYS-users] Type51
Hi Amandine,
In order to solve the mass balance and energy balance that represent the
process inside the cooling tower, Type51 uses correlations for the
psychrometric properties. Type51 has to perform internal iterations in
order to solve those two equations. It is possible that a combination
of input conditions are resulting in a very difficult problem to find a
solution for, and the iterations are going out of the limits considered
appropriate for the correlations. Did you connect both the dry bulb
temperature and the wet bulb temperature inputs of the model to the
weather data reader?
My idea to debug this problem is that you use Type51b, and use the
default parameters for the cooling tower. Find the time when the error
is occurring, and look at the inlet conditions. Use this values to
calculate yourself the outlet conditions in the cooling tower: you can
use the mathematical reference (volume 5, section 5.4.17) to do the
calculations. Perhaps you may find an input that is causing the problem.
Please let me know if you have questions debugging this problem.
Best regards,
Diego

Dear Mike,
This message is created when the outputs from a component that is
updated at the end of a time-step. Is it possible that you have
connected the output from an integrator as input to another component?
If this is not the case, please feel free to contact your distributor;
they may be able to help you.

Objet: Re: [TRNSYS-users] Mistake in Type 19 conduction input wall?
Hi Rémi,
I do not think that there is an error. The formulation of the
conductive heat transfer in Type 19 is the result of an energy balance
on surface i, as follows:
Energy in:
- Q_i : Conductive heat transfer
- A*s : Radiation absorption on the surface (absorption of solar radiation)
Energy out:
- A*h_c*(T_s,i - T_z) : convective heat transfer to the zone
- A*h_r_ij*(T_s,i - T_s,j) : radiation exchange between surface i and
surface j, using a linearized radiation coefficient. (For simplicity,
let's assume that there are only two surfaces, i and j)
Energy balance yields:
Q_i + A*s = A*h_c*(T_s,i - T_z) + A*h_r_ij*(T_s,i - T_s,j)
You can rearrange these terms as:
(Q_i/A + s)/h_c = (1 + h_r_ij/h_c )*T_s,i - h_r_ij/h_c*T_s,j - T_z
This equation is written in matrix form in equations 5.7.3.19 -
5.7.3.22. I guess that the confusion is given by the second part of the
paragraph, where it explains that Q_i should be evaluated using T_eq. I
have to admit that I am not entire sure of this: if Q_i only has
conductive heat transfer through the wall, you would only need the
actual temperatures on the surfaces to calculate it.
I will appreciate the comments from the experts on this list.
Best regards,
Diego

Objet: Re: [TRNSYS-users] Mistake in Type 19 conduction input wall?
Thanks Diego,
I was mistaken, and your response helped clarify how the equations for conduction input wall works. I believe the reason you need to use equivalent temperatures comes from the energy balance:
Q_i + A*s = A*h_c*(T_s,i - T_z) + A*h_r_ij*(T_s,i - T_s,j)
You can solve the above equation for Q_i as follows:
Q_i=A*h_c*(T_S,i-T_eq)
so you would need to pass T_eq to the program that calculates Q_i for the above energy balance to work.
