CBECC-Res: Under the Hood - Big Ladder Software Workshop


Big Ladder Software

PG&E Pacific Energy Center - 851 Howard St., San Francisco, CA 94103

March 25 - 26, 2019

In this two-day workshop we focus on the needs of the energy modeler analyzing residential building code compliance in California using CBECC-Res. We cover the fundamentals of the California Simulation Engine (CSE), the underlying simulation engine for CBECC-Res. Workshop topics begin with basics on how to adjust simulation settings and schedules and eventually include more detailed descriptions of HVAC systems, controls, photovoltaics, and domestic hot water systems. We guide you through the complexities of the CSE syntax, input/output files, and documentation, as well as how inputs in CBECC-Res are translated to CSE input file components. 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 CSE models in the context of CBECC-Res.

This workshop should be a prerequisite for anyone planning to analyze emerging technologies for residential buildings in the context of California’s Title 24 energy code.
