The default climate zone loaded will have been loaded from the Locations template and that value was originally derived from the value shown on the Hourly weather data dialog which in turn was derived appendkx analysing the.

Get Ahead of the Curve for Learn more Please note: Appenvix the requirements of Power and Other Equipment sections of the standard. When a site is created or when the climate zone is changed, baseline constructions and glazing systems as well as construction templates are generated for the selected ASHRAE climate zone ready for assigning to the building.

When running Heating or Cooling design calculations, if the FCfactorMethod ground temperatures source data at site level has 1-Hourly weather file selected, a weather file containing ground temperatures in the header should be selected and will be downloaded if not yet in your weather file folder on your computer prior to the calculations. Modelers are now directed to use the default assemblies in Appendkx A for baseline opaque envelope assemblies.

Please upgrade your browser. The baseline building design is now fixed at a certain level of performance. The default climate zone can be overridden at site level under the Location header.

Identify the updated HVAC requirements from previous versions of the standard. New direction is provided regarding when it’s appropriate to model a heating-only system in Appendix G.

Clarification is provided for when baseline HVAC systems should be modeled with preheat coils.


Standard 90.1 Appendix G 2013: Performance Rating Method

Changes are made to the baseline lighting power allowances in Appendix G. New detail is provided on the simulation of baseline building heat pumps. If instead you used the External measurements template for example you would find that the ashtae building surface areas, floor area and zone volumes would be different after loading the baseline constructions because these generally have a different thickness to those selected for the proposed building. List the basic requirements of the Lighting and Building Envelope sections of the standard.

In our attempt to deliver a superior experience, we no longer support Internet Explorer versions 7 and older. Internet Explorer versions 7 and older have known compatibility and security issues with modern web standards which affect next generation Web 2. For your proposed design you can improve the baseline construction by copying and editing or simply replacing them with definitions shown on architectural drawings appndix as built for existing building envelopes.

For the proposed building design, where no heating or cooling systems exist or have been specified, the heating or cooling systems shall be identical to the systems modelled in the baseline building design.

Standard 90.1: HVAC/Mechanical and Appendix G (MENA)

When 9.1 an activity template, it will update the lighting schedule. Changes to the edition include the following: This site requires a newer version to work correctly.

The data is provided in the Summary report as:. Supported by Ubercart, an open source e-commerce suite. This means that when you copy the proposed building to create the baseline building the zone geometry will be correct even after loading the baseline constructions. EnergyPlus provides a “LEED Summary” report which is displayed on the Summary tab after the simulation if the appropriate option is checked on the Output tab a;pendix the Simulation options sshrae under the Summary Tables header.

This course is offered on another organization’s website, which means that you must leave usgbc. If 2-User defined is selected, the Heating and Cooling design calculations do not require the weather file.

The easiest way to ensure this is to use the Simple geometry convention for both buildings. Baseline building conditions and climate zone information on many cities in the region will also be provided.

The hierarchy of the decision-making process for selecting baseline HVAC systems is reestablished. Home Technical Resources Bookstore.

The above information on Unmet hours is sourced from a post by Ashu Gupta and subsequent posts on the bldg-sim mailing list. In this case simply aappendix the correct ASHRAE climate zone at site level and the baseline constructions and glazing will be automatically updated to reflect the new climate zone.

This document does not constitute the final version. With the Simple template the block geometry drawn gives the exact surface geometry and zone volumes to be used in the simulation. Would you like to proceed? Appendix G can now be used as a path for compliance with the standard.

Users are cautioned that the full edition of aahrae standard will likely contain additional changes to Appendix G.
