Energy Modelling (Module 1)

Requirements

  • A desire to learn..
  • Some engineering knowledge is beneficial, but lessons are explained in depth to allow students to build their knowledge from the ground up..
  • A background in engineering / Process Industry / Architect would have added advantage.
  • Basic knowledge of Computer.

Energy modeling or energy system modeling is the process of building computer models of energy systems in order to analyze them.

  • Module 1 consist of basic introduction of Energy simulation. Two basic wizards of equest are discussed in the module 1 followed by weather file selection and converting BIN file, Building footprints. 
  • 8 Module Course has following topics covered with Hand On practice on eQuest Software.
  • The course is useful to Architects and Engineers who wish to perform Energy Modelling of Building. Total 10 module course gives hand on practice to create the building, to apply energy efficiency measure and to predict the building performance before it is made. It is a consolidated course to understand Energy Modelling from scratch and to be expert in the same. All modules have explanation videos about What is energy modelling followed by details of eQuest software. While learning you may practice on your PC or laptop to understand the procedure and get on hand training.
  • Following topics will be covered in total 8 modules of Energy Simulation
