This elective course will allow students to build models to simulate the energy performance of building systems. Starting with commonly used energy simulation tools and their features, students will apply basic principles and typical methods for model development and identification to HVAC systems. Through simulation models students will learn to optimize various systems such as lighting, HVAC, and renewable energy systems for comfort and energy performance with consideration for the impact on life-cycle costs. The course will address energy simulation in building and systems design phase as well as during the operation phase.
