Big Ladder Software is pleased to announce that we are leading our
*EnergyPlus* for Practitioners
*EnergyPlus* EMS Controls
workshops in *Denver*! These workshops will be held on *April 13 - 15* in
our downtown office.

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.*

This two-day workshop focuses 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 *Euclid* 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*

EnergyPlus EMS Controls

*Workshop Description*

This one-day workshop covers the Energy Management System (EMS) capability
of *EnergyPlus*, which allows the 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 the
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 strongly recommended but not
required. *
