The energy uses for the FPTU fan, the FPTU heating coil, the primary fan (air handler), the chiller, the preheat coil, and the total plant are also listed in Table 6.
If the outdoor air is so cold that that the mixture of outdoor air and bypassed air containing the minimum outdoor air flow rate is colder than the SAT setpoint, then the preheat coil is initiated to heat the outdoor air until the mixed air reaches the SAT setpoint.
Features include dual boilers, a preheat coil, a fully saturated brew group, and software that distributes power to the elements that need it most.

We occasionally have temperatures below freezing, and many of our AHUs are equipped with a hot water preheat coil located after the mixed air plenum and in front of the cooling coil (see Figure 1).
In the model, the preheat coil was located downstream of the mixing of return and outdoor air.
Using a single coil had the added benefit of eliminating the fan energy penalty associated with the more typical practice of using a heat recovery heat coil supplemented with a preheat coil. Data collected on this system's operation indicates that it averages approximately 3 billion Btus (880 MWh) of waste heat recovery per year, with 35% of the total extracted from the building exhaust.
The supply side consisted of a preheat coil, a system air mixer, a primary cooling coil, and a supply fan.
the preheat coil control valve will start opening when the reheat coil cannot maintain the preset hot deck temperatures.
That DOAS unit is sometimes outfitted with a preheat coil and an unnecessarily high discharge air setpoint in the winter (e.g., 60[degrees]F [16[degrees]C]).
