Standard HVAC/Mechanical and Appendix G (MENA) – ASHRAE Falcon

For your proposed design you can improve the baseline construction by copying and editing or simply replacing them with definitions shown on architectural drawings or as built for existing building envelopes.

Supported by Ubercart, an open source e-commerce suite. Changes are made to the baseline lighting power allowances in Appendix G. Please upgrade your browser. When loading an activity template, it will update the lighting schedule. It is being released ahead of the standard to provide designers, program developers, and software developers an advance look at changes to the Performance Rating Method for the purposes of program and software planning and development.

The baseline building design is now fixed at a ashra level of performance. In our attempt to deliver a superior experience, we no longer support Internet Explorer versions 7 and older. The hierarchy of the decision-making process for selecting baseline HVAC systems is reestablished.

Store Resources Education Directory Articles. Internet Explorer versions 7 and older have known compatibility and security issues with modern web standards which affect next generation Web 2.

New detail is provided on the simulation of baseline building heat pumps.

New direction is provided regarding when it’s ashrse to model a heating-only system in Appendix G. The default climate zone loaded will have been loaded from the Locations template and that value was originally derived from the value shown on the Hourly weather data dialog which in turn was derived by analysing the.


Appendix G can now be used as a path for compliance with the standard. When a site is created or when the climate zone is changed, baseline constructions and glazing systems as well as construction templates are generated for the selected ASHRAE climate zone ready for assigning to the building. Interpret the requirements of Power and Other Equipment sections of the standard. Clarification is provided for when baseline HVAC systems should be modeled with preheat coils.

If instead you used the External measurements template for example you would find that the baseline building surface areas, floor area and zone volumes would be different after loading the baseline constructions because these generally have a different thickness to those selected for the proposed building. EnergyPlus provides a “LEED Summary” report which is displayed on the Summary tab after the simulation if the appropriate option is checked on the Output tab of the Simulation options dialog under the Summary Tables header.

Home Technical Resources Bookstore. Modelers are now directed to use the default assemblies in Appendix A for baseline opaque envelope assemblies. This section outlines the procedures involved in setting up proposed and baseline building models in accordance with ASHRAE AtlantaGA United States. For the proposed building design, where no heating or cooling systems exist or have been specified, the heating or cooling systems shall be identical to the systems modelled in the baseline building design.

This means that when you copy the proposed ashraw to create the baseline building the zone geometry will be correct even after loading the baseline constructions. This site requires a newer version appenddix work correctly.

With the Simple template the block geometry drawn gives the exact surface geometry and zone volumes to be used in the simulation. The data is provided in the Summary report as:. Users are cautioned that the full edition of the standard will likely contain additional changes to Appendix G. List the basic requirements of the Lighting and Building Envelope sections of the standard.


ASHRAE 90.1-Appendix G Performance Rating Method: Modeling HVAC Systems

Leaders Samir Traboulsi, Ph. The default climate zone can be overridden at site level under the Location header. The easiest way to ensure apendix is to use the Simple geometry convention for both buildings.

In this case simply select the correct ASHRAE climate zone at site level and the baseline constructions and glazing will be automatically updated to reflect the new climate zone.

Get Ahead of the Curve for When running Heating or Cooling design calculations, if the FCfactorMethod ground temperatures source data at site level has 1-Hourly weather file selected, a weather file containing ground temperatures in the header should be selected and will be downloaded if not yet in your weather file folder on your computer prior to the calculations.

This document does not constitute the final version. Identify the updated HVAC requirements from previous versions of the standard. Would you like to proceed?

If 2-User defined is selected, the Heating and Cooling design calculations do not require the weather file.
