bhargav1195 is on a distinguished road

I want to model an Air conditioner in a room with the following input,
1) Cooling/Heating capacity of AC
2) The flow rate of supply air
3) The temperature of supply air

I have tried the following approach
A) At the supply air boundary patch, I specified the velocity and temperature
B) At the return air boundary patch, I specified static pressure = O bar

Is the aforementioned approach of setting zero static pressure at return air opening is correct?
How do I implement the capacity of AC?

Additionally, How can I specify the opening ratio of the panel which is supplying air?

Note: Please consider the case related to Data Center modeling for the above problem.

Thank You.
