Introduction to EnergyPlus for Experienced Modelers    

January 29-31, 2003, Chicago, Illinois, USA    

Come to this EnergyPlus training course immediately following the 
Chicago ASHRAE meeting in January.  The course schedule is:  

Wednesday, January 29, 2:00 to 6:00 pm  
Thursday, January 30, 8:30 am to 5:30 pm
Friday, January 31, 8:30 am to 1:00 pm     

This workshop will introduce EnergyPlus to experienced modelers who 
are familiar with the basic concepts of energy simulation.  The 
course will cover the mechanics of using EnergyPlus with an emphasis 
on aspects of EnergyPlus that differ substantially from other common 
modeling tools (e.g., DOE-2 and BLAST), such as the use of a multiple 
time-step approach, the integrated simulation of loads, systems and 
plant, and defining fluid and air loops.  Bring your own laptop for 
the hands-on workshop sessions.    

The course will be held in "the loop" in Chicago at the Crowne Plaza 
Silversmith, 10 South Wabash Avenue (1 block north of the Palmer 
House Hilton which is the ASHRAE headquarters hotel).

accomodations please see
