This one-day training covers intermediate air-side HVAC modeling in eQUEST. Two broad system types are discussed: single zone air handlers including packaged rooftop units and multiple zone VAV systems.
For each system type, we will cover the following topics:
- Properly configuring the system in eQUEST
- Modeling efficiency, part load performance, fan power, ventilation, and control.
- Modeling typical existing systems and common improvements
- Modeling ASHARE Standard 90.1 – Appenidix G baseline systems
- Modeling high performance systems, including single zone VAV systems
- Productivity tips
- Using reports for quality control and troubleshooting
The training format includes lecture, discussion, Q&A, and hands on exercises to put theory into practice.
- Model the most common air-side HVAC systems
- Model typical improvements to the most common air-side HVAC system
- Troubleshoot and interpret energy models using eQUEST detailed and hourly reports
- Increase modeling productivity with productivity tips and tricks
