Overview

Energy Efficiency Alberta covers 50% of the course fees for residents of Alberta only. The incentive has already been applied on the listed special fee for residents of Alberta.

 

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 will provide specific training on the software and explore its features as well as the modelling process.

 

Objectives

 

This course aims at providing the energy-related design decision makers with the knowledge required for energy model development process using CAN-QUEST. 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 modeling
  • 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.

Agenda

DAY 1
  • Wizard – set up the energy model in CanQuest 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 a wall, 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 (systems basics, fans, outdoor air, cooling, heating)
  • Run the Simulation and Results
