Overview

CAN-QUEST is a Canadian adaptation of eQUEST. This powerful energy modelling software can assess and demonstrate performance path compliance with the National Energy Code of Canada for Buildings 2011 (NECB 2011). It can also be used to support the design of high performance commercial and institutional buildings. This hands-on 2-day advanced workshop provide specific training on the software and explores its features as well as the modelling process.

Objectives

Upon training completion, participants will be able to:

  • Prepare an energy model in CAN-QUEST
  • Use Wizards to set up preliminary models
  • Use Detailed Mode for accurate modelling
  • Understand DOE reporting and calculations
  • Use CAN-QUEST and eQuest as a compliance tool

Who should attend?

This short thematic course is ideal for the following clientele:

 

  • Energy-related design decision makers
  • Energy modellers
  • Architects
  • Electrical engineers
  • Mechanical engineers
  • Engineers and technicians

DOWNLOAD CAN-QUEST

CIET has been granted the only commercial licence by Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to deliver CAN-QUEST software training in Canada.

 

Do you need to understand the basics of energy modelling or review the process for administrative purposes? Our 1-day Introduction to Building Energy Modelling will provide you with the knowledge you need.

There will be an optional but appreciated 45-min informal networking session at the end of the first day so you can get to know your fellow participants better; it starts after the Q&A at around 5:15 pm CDT.

DAY 1
  • Wizard – set up the energy model in Can-Quest or eQuest
    – Project and Site Data (building type, location, seasons)
    – Shells and Zoning (building shells, 3D-viewer, zoning principles, space types, importing custom footprints and zoning)
  • Run the Simulation
  • Important Files
  • Detailed Interface – Execute the Energy Model
    – Creating Schedules in CAN-QUEST
    – Envelope (building up walls, roofs, windows and floors, below-grade construction and reference building envelope)
    – Internal Loads (lighting and equipment)
    – Water-side HVAC (loops, boilers, chillers, heat rejection, pumps, controls, reference building)
    – Air-side – HVAC (system basics, fans, outdoor air, cooling, heating)
  • Run the Simulation and Results
  • Create Compliance Run
 
DAY 2
  • Case Study
