Energy Modeling Workshops

WHOLE BUILDING SIMULATION USING eQUEST REQUIRED FOR LEED, ESTIDAMA AND QSAS COMPLIANCE

Target Participants:

  • Energy Simulators modeling for LEED®, ASHRAE, Estidama and GSAS
  • New users of eQuest

Workshop Learning Objectives:

  • Energy Modeling as an Essential Design Tool.
  • Understand the capabilities of the DOE2.2
  • Create a building model using a wizard-template for inputs and switching a detailed edit mode to refine the model with design details creating a baseline to work with and analyze.
  • Setting up Thermal Zones, Exterior and Internal Load input to establish a performance baseline.
  • Learn input strategies for basic HVAC systems.

Optional Day 2 Workshop Learning Objectives: (Day 1 is Pre-Requisite)

  • Simulation to perform compliance analysis and comparison with baseline building.
  • Perform system ECMs (Energy Conservation Measures) for increased energy savings and alternative simulation strategy (LEED Compliance will be discussed).
  • Work with basic DOE2.2 reports to verify integrity of simulation results.
  • Understand how to evaluate results and perform Quality Control checks for “realistic” data.
  • Discussion on selected case studies

Participant Requirements:

  • Personal Laptop with Windows OS (Mac OS is not workable) and a mouse. We will help with the installation of eQuest v. 3.64 .
  • Fees: $900 for Day 1 and $1400 for both days.
