Dear Atta Ullah Sanai,

Thank you for contacting TESS Technical Support and providing your 
institutional information. Type107 only takes a specific set of 
performance data. There are a few different TESS Chiller models in the 
TESS Cogeneration and TESS HVAC Libraries as well that might fit the 
particular performance data of that model. Also, no source code 
compiling is necessary for the external performance data of these 
components. Also, I highly recommend that you read through the thread 
"Type 666 Chiller Queries" on the following page for excellent insight 
about the chiller models.

Best regards,

Matt Duffy
