Class Overview

In this session, you will learn how to do what you saw demonstrated in the "How Simergy can answer your building energy design questions" webinar. Most people are able to complete this class in 2 to 3 hours, so please plan accordingly.

In the course of completing the 5 lessons in this class, you will achieve all of the following:

  • Learn some basics about building energy modeling and Simergy
  • Create your first building energy model (BEM) using the Building Model Creator™ and Building Systems Creator™
  • Run a simulation to calculate buidling thermal loads through a complete year
  • Copy and modify the BEM to use triple-pane glazing instead of double-pane -- simulate -- and then compare the thermal loads to the double-pane version
  • Copy and modify the BEM to use an Air-to-Air Heatpump system for HVAC -- simulate -- and review the energy required to condition this building
  • Copy and modify the BEM to use hot water for heating and chilled water for cooling (ASHRAE 7 system) for HVAC -- simulate -- and then compare energy use to the Heatpump version

Reviewing and comparing results from all these simulations will be done in a series of standard reports, but we may also have time to use the graphical results visualization module - considered best in the industry. You will also be shown how to find more resources on the website and how to 'make the most' of your Simergy Professional FREE trial period.
