Ilyas and Pierre,

   Make sure too that the timestep you have chosen for your simulation 
is appropriate. TRNSYS controller models can make one control decision 
per timestep and if the timestep is too long then overheating and 
undercooling can occur, especially in zones that have lower thermal 
capacitance. I typically use timesteps ranging between 1 and 5 minutes 
for HVAC system simulations.

kind regards,
