Big Ladder Software is pleased to announce that we are launching our new
web training platform <https://training.bigladdersoftware.com/>! This will
host all training material and Zoom webinars for all of our future
workshops. Making an account is free, plus there's a social element to chat
with other platform users and instructors.

The inaugural training will include our *EnergyPlus* for Practitioners
 and *EnergyPlus* EMS Controls
 workshops as a *public** webinar series*! The *EnergyPlus* for
Practitioners webinar sessions will take place from August 29 - September 9
and the *EnergyPlus* EMS Controls workshops will take place from September

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. *
