In this course you will learn the basic commands to use CYPETHERM Eplus. With the CYPETHERM EPlus program you can carry out energy analysis in a building, obtaining its Demand and Consumption. In order to obtain these results, learn how to define the thermal envelope of the building and the air conditioning and DHW systems.

Requirements

  • Background in BIM Modelling

Description

CYPETHERM EPlus is an application for the simulation and modelling of buildings with EnergyPlus™.

EnergyPlus™, a calculation engine developed by the US Department of Energy (DOE), is currently one of the most widely used, powerful and renowned energy simulation engines. Thanks to its integration with CYPETHERM EPlus, the application becomes a powerful tool for the energy simulation of buildings, allowing their energy demand to be determined, as well as the energy performance of the HVAC systems, determining the energy consumption by building services and energy vector used.

Some of the calculation results offered by the program include:

  • Energy demand report
    Results of the energy demand calculation, detailed by thermal zone.

  • Energy consumption report
    Results of the energy consumption calculation, detailed by thermal zone and energy vector.

  • Condensation
    Allows users to check for the presence of surface and interstitial condensation in accordance with ISO 13788, integrating the calculation carried out by the CYPETHERM HYGRO program into each construction system of the building’s thermal envelope.

  • Description of materials and construction elements
    Report of the different construction elements present in the job along with their materials, quantities, transmission coefficients, etc.

  • Lineal thermal bridges
    Report of the linear thermal bridges introduced in the building, with their length and thermal transmittance values.

  • Internal comfort
    Allows the comparison of the indoor temperature of each zone of the building throughout the year with the outdoor temperature and with the maximum comfort temperatures established. In addition, it collects the unmet load hours of each zone.

RenoZEB aims to unlock the nearly Zero Energy Building (nZEB) renovation market by increasing property value through a new systemic approach to retrofitting. This will include innovative components, and processes and decision making methodologies to guide all value-chain actors in the nZEB building renovation action. RenoZEB will provide cost-effective 'plug and play' solutions for a large-scale deep nZEB rehabilitation schemes, ensuring the integrate-ability of all its components, methodologies, training, guidelines, and demonstration cases. The real and virtual demonstration cases will show and ensure the replicability of the schemes and technical tools to appropriately address the valorisation of the building stock before and after nZEB renovation schemes are applied.
