[EnergyPlus_Support] Adjacent buildings and CAD files.
Thank very much you for your explanation.
First let me introduce myself: I have a BS degree in Mechanical
Engineering and I live in Lisbon, Portugal's capital city. I design
small HVAC facilities. Up to now I have used only Direct Expansion
systems, but I want to use Water-air and all-Air systems (both VAV
and CAV). I would like to base my decisions after a carefully load
estimation and energy analisys.
I understand that this group is primarily for e+ users, and I just a
rookie in the business. However, the general questions I post will
help me a lot understanding the "broader picture".
? After zoning the site, if one is not sure about wich system
to aplly, is it possible to run e+ just to calcule only the building
thermal loads for each zone in the first place (with no HVACsystem
defined), then chose the systems to use, and rerun the input file
? The e+ takes in account the shadows created by adjacent
buildings and structures? (it's an issue I haven't seen yet in the
discussions I found).
. As far is I know, there is a way to import CAD drawings of
the site in a special format, in order to speed up the process of
input file filling. When we do that , besides the building geometry,
the wall U values, and doors and windows characteristics (if they
are incorporated in the cad file)are also incorporated in the input
Thanks in advance,
