Learn eQUEST with hand on exercises. Learn to Create an eQUEST model based on real world applications
In this advanced course, we cover creation of a building from real design drawing and a real .dwg file. We consider advanced zoning and advanced shell stacking in a detailed 3 story building. Then, we move to detailed mode and work on geometry setup in the building. The course also covers tips and tricks in eQUEST from seasoned users. You get the example files in order to practice the lessons this advanced eQUEST model.
Lesson 1: Creating the Building in the DD wizard
• Setup and tips
• Drawing the building and zones
• Shell Stacking
• Atrium setup
• System setup
• Plant Setup
Lesson 2: Quicktip Highlight Reel
In this lesson, we slow down the pace after the rigorous first lesson, kick back and see various tips and tricks that all eQUEST users need to know.
• Wizard Duel
• Differences between SD and DD
• Simulation time tips
• Geometry blunders
Lesson 3: Detailed Mode
In this lesson, we jump into the ever so intimidating detailed mode. We cover some things that could be created in the wizard, but instead create them in detailed mode so that you will better understand eQUEST and its DOE2 engine.
• Advanced Window placement
• Roofs and Walls in Detailed mode
• Utility Rate setup
• Hot Water Reset
• Chilled Water Reset
• User Defaults
• Optimum Start
Lesson 4: Advanced Topics
At the end of this eQUEST course, we cover common advanced concepts that may or may not be required in a real world file.
• Detailed edit Shell Stacking. Creating a roof polygon
• Infiltration customization
• Hourly Reports
• Adding Design Days
