Early bird fee - INR 6,500 [USD 110]
Regular fee - INR 8,500 [USD 140]
Learn effective workflow to model HVAC systems in OpenStudio
Learn baseline modelling protocol as per ASHRAE 90.1-2010, Appendix G
Understand LEED v4 requirements for energy model
Develop energy model with a Chilled Water System for a sample building
Model all components of Chilled Water System like Air Handling Units, Fan Coil Units, Chiller, Pumps, Cooling Tower in OpenStudio
Use the Building Component Library (BCL) in OpenStudio for HVAC system
Identify bugs to run error-free simulations
Run compliance check as per LEED v4 requirements
Create report for LEEDv4 compliance using OpenStudio measure
Understand simulation results to give meaningful feedback to the design team
Prerequisite: Basic working knowledge of OpenStudio and SketchUp is required. Basic understanding of HVAC systems will be an advantage. This course is offered for an Intermediate learning level.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED IN THE PROGRAM?
Detailed fresh air calculations as per ASHRAE 62.1-2010 for LEED compliance
Daylight modeling for LEED compliance
Other requirements covered in the Energy and Atmosphere Credit in LEED v4
Parametric Analysis Tool (PAT) in OpenStudio
While you will be able to change or modify various system components, detailed energy conservation measures to optimize the design of the CHW system will not be covered. LEED compliance is the focus of this program.
THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED FOR:
HVAC and MEP engineers, energy modelers, green building consultants
Students studying HVAC design or related discipline (final year or masters level)
Faculty teaching HVAC, energy efficiency or related discipline
Weekly classroom session with the instructor to clear queries and discuss assignments
Short self-paced videos lessons covering fundamentals of the weekly topic.
Discussion on assignments
Certificate on completing the course
“This OS series has helped me for my master of architecture thesis work.”
“The course is relevant to my upskilling efforts as I'm trying to get a handle on Energy conservation measures applicable to Buildings and its Systems using simulation softwares.”
“I liked that the program focused on the main subject. We did not spend time on different themes. For me it was great because I would like to learn exactly that!”
"The consecutive sessions of OpenStudio series courses gave continuity to my learning"
