ASHRAE Appendix G Performance Rating Method: Modeling HVAC Systems | IBPSA

Sign up for email Enter your email address: List the basic requirements of the Lighting and Building Envelope sections of the standard. Appendix G can now be used as a path for compliance with the standard.

Clarification is provided for when baseline HVAC systems should be modeled with preheat coils. When loading an activity template, it will update the lighting schedule. New detail is provided on the simulation of baseline building heat pumps.

The baseline building design is now fixed at a certain level of performance. This document does not constitute the final version.

Supported by Ubercart, an open source e-commerce suite. The default climate zone can be overridden at site level under the Location header.

Changes to the edition include the following: 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.

AtlantaGA United States. This means that when you copy the proposed building to create the baseline building the zone geometry will be correct even after loading the baseline constructions.

The easiest way to ensure this is to use the Simple geometry convention for both buildings. Leaders Samir Traboulsi, Ph. 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. Would you like to proceed?

Home Technical Resources Bookstore. The hierarchy of the decision-making process for selecting baseline HVAC systems is reestablished.

If 2-User defined is selected, the Heating and Cooling design calculations do appenvix require the weather file.

In our attempt to deliver a superior experience, we no longer support Internet Explorer versions 7 and older. 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.

Users are cautioned that the full edition of the standard will likely contain additional changes to Appendix G. New direction is provided regarding when it’s appropriate to model a heating-only system in Appendix G. 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.

With the Simple template the block geometry drawn gives the exact surface geometry and zone volumes to be used in the simulation.

ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G PRM Reference

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 site requires a newer version to work correctly. Identify the updated HVAC requirements from previous versions of the standard. 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.


Interpret the requirements of Power and Other Equipment sections of the standard.

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

This course is offered on appendic organization’s website, which means that you must leave usgbc.

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 Awhrae Tables header.
