Big Ladder Software would like to remind everyone that we are leading our
two-day *EnergyPlus* for Practitioners
workshop and one-day training workshop for customization of controls
sequences in *EnergyPlus* models using Energy Management System
(EMS) objects. These workshops will be held on *May 9-11** in **San
Francisco** in collaboration with the **PG&E Pacific Energy Center*. You
can register for these two workshops separately, but we are offering a
to attend both*.

Earlier that week, we are also leading a two-day *CBECC-Res* / *California
Simulation Engine* training workshop that you can register for separately.

limited space for these workshops so sign-up soon!See our upcoming
workshops in Washington, DC and Toronto

EnergyPlus for Practitioners

*Workshop Description*

- Have you ever wanted to truly understand how to use *EnergyPlus* at the
text level?
- Have you been using *OpenStudio*, *DesignBuilder*, or another GUI and had
the need to peek under the hood to debug a problem or implement a measure
or workaround?

*This workshop should be a prerequisite for anyone planning to work
with EnergyPlus regardless of what user interface you choose.*

In this two-day workshop we focus on the needs of the energy modeling
practitioner in order to get you up to speed and highly productive with
*EnergyPlus* as quickly as possible. We cover the fundamentals of
*EnergyPlus* such as geometry and internal loads while rapidly ramping up
to advanced topics such as HVAC systems and controls. We guide you through
the complexities of the *EnergyPlus* syntax, input/output files,
documentation, and essential software tools including the *OpenStudio* (legacy)
plugin for *SketchUp*. Most importantly, we teach you how to use the
available resources to teach yourself going forward. Demonstrations and
hands-on exercises are used extensively throughout. By the end of the
workshop, you should be comfortable with creating, running, and debugging
*EnergyPlus* models.

EnergyPlus EMS Controls

*Workshop Description*

This one-day workshop covers the Energy Management System (EMS) capability
of *EnergyPlus*, which allows implementation of custom control strategies
and calculation routines that override standard modeling processes within
*EnergyPlus*. We cover the *EnergyPlus*Runtime Language (Erl) that is used
to describe the custom control programs, how to create EMS components
(sensors, actuators, output variables, etc.), and how to debug execution of
EMS programs. Lecture topics include how to create advanced HVAC control
sequences, how to override default HVAC operation (flow rate, setpoint
temperature, capacity, etc.), how to abort a simulation when operational
faults occur, and how to use outputs to generate trend data. Demonstrations
and hands-on exercises are used extensively throughout.

*Previous experience with EnergyPlus is recommended but not required. *
