Presentation 1

Title: A Demonstration of the latest DesignBuilder EnergyPlus Features

Andy Tindale, Director, DesignBuilder Software Ltd

DesignBuilder is a full-featured GUI to the EnergyPlus simulation engine. Commercially available since 2005 DesignBuilder is the most mature EnergyPlus interface available and includes a high quality building modeller which allows building models to be easily created using 3-D blocks. A wide range of HVAC systems (including ASHRAE 90.1 baselines) can be defined using a powerful template-based HVAC interface. DesignBuilder also provides integrated Radiance simulations for daylighting analysis and internal and external CFD for detailed analysis of airflow distribution within and around buildings. The demonstration will show how the DesignBuilder modeler can be used to quickly and easily set up building geometry as well as windows, vents, constructions and shading data. A model will be imported from Revit to illustrate DesignBuilder's BIM links and a CAD floor plan will be imported in DXF format for tracing over. Some of the EnergyPlus HVAC systems supported by DesignBuilder will be demonstrated and simulations run. The new DesignBuilder Results Viewer application for viewing EnergyPlus outputs will also be demonstrated. It is freely available for download for all EnergyPlus users.

About the Speaker: Dr Andy Tindale is a director and founder of DesignBuilder, and together with Dr Steve Potter, has been leading the development of the DesignBuilder software toolset since 2000. Andy has over 25 years? experience in the building energy simulation sector working in academia, design consultancies and R&D groups. Passionate about removing unnecessary barriers to widespread adoption of the latest building simulation technology, Andy has recently been working on adding a powerful new design optimization toolset to the software.

Title: A demonstration of IES VE-2013

Liam Buckley, Business Development Manager, IES Ltd.

The presentation of IES Software; VE-2013 will focus on various integrated building performance analysis, including;

1.       LEED 2009 Navigator (with 2012 Revisions).

This analysis and assessment includes ?LEED-Automation? integration for Transport (SS4.1), Parking Capacity (SS4.4), Maximize Open Space (SS5.2), Storm Water (SS6.1), Heat island non-roof (SS7.1), Heat Island Roof (SS7.2), Water Use (WEp1, WE 2, WE 3), Water Efficiency Landscaping (WE 1), Energy Performance (EAp2, EA 1, 2, 6), Controllability of Systems (IEQ6.2), Thermal Comfort (IEQ7.1), Daylight (IEQ8.1) and Views (IEQ8.2).

2.       ASHRAE 90.1 Energy Modeling Navigator.

This integrated toolset includes simulation from passive solar simulation and daylight harvesting simulation, as well as integration from bulk-airflow and HVAC systems optimization. The energy simulation engine (Apache) is ASHRAE-140 validated and is approved by the DOE to qualify for tax deductions (179d).  The ApacheHVAC application has a fully integrated airside and waterside graphical user interface for both inputs and output results.

3.       Other IES-VE Features

This includes Model Interoperability, Climatic Analysis, 3-D Daylight Simulation, HVAC Loads, ASHRAE 62.1, CFD Simulation and introducing the new ?Parametric Batch Processor? for energy & carbon simulation and much more.

About the Speaker: Liam Buckley is a Business Development Manager with IES and a Project Manager with IES-Consulting. Liam?s consulting work includes lighting design, daylighting, natural ventilation, CFD, renewable energy and whole-building energy simulation and optimization. Liam has 10+ years? experience with building performance analysis software tools and is an ASHRAE Certified Building Energy Modeling Professional. Liam is a Chartered Engineer and is on the IBPSA-USA Educational Committee.
