Why Should You Take This eQUEST Building Set Up Case Study Online Anytime Course?

In this eQUEST Building Set Up Case Study Online Anytime course, we give you the building designs and specifications and then show you how to input them step-by-step into eQUEST to create the full building for your energy modeling. This course breaks down an eQUEST energy model and goes step by step through the building set up process. We provide all the building plans and specs to so you can follow along.


Implement Building from Design Drawings:  We provide you everything to follow along step by step including: the building design, mechanicals, architecturals and .dwg building cad file. The ability to not only watch the process, but actually do the energy model yourself in eQUEST makes this course an amazing learning tool. Follow along as we import the cad file into eQUEST, set up the building shell/draw the building and set up the energy model's zones.


eQuest System Set-Up:  Since we provide all the mechanical specs it's easy to follow along while we use the eQUEST navigator and component tree view to setup the systems. Watch as we go through a VAV, unit heater and heat pump systems and set up the equipment, then assign the zones.


Rate Structures, Detailed Mode, and LPD:  We go through the rate structure set up and then move out of the design development wizard into eQUEST Detailed Mode. We discuss renaming eQUEST spaces using the eQUEST .inp file and our eQUEST space renamer. Next we show you how to create global parameters in eQUEST, using LPD (Lighting Power Densities) as an example and much more.


eQuest Window Set-Up and Materials:  We go over how to finish up the building details, such as windows, doors, walls and glass types. Then we go through material and construction types set up in the detailed mode. We basically finish setting up the energy model in this section.


eQuest System Specifics:  We finish off the energy model by setting the system specifics in this section. In this section we wrap up some fan details and pump details. Then we make sure our efficiencies are correct.

The Following Topics Will Be Covered:

  • Starting a New File
  • Drawing the Building
  • Creating Custom Zones
  • Creating New Floors Efficiently
  • System Setup with the Design Development Wizard
