IESVE Building Energy Modeling and Simulation (Basic Level)

Buildings constitute the largest energy consuming sector, with one third of all the final energy and half of global electricity consumed. They are also responsible for one – third of the global carbon emissions. This training course is to equip the trainee to adopt the building performance simulation / design options in order to have better building design for energy efficiency / savings.

Course Outline

Project Settings

  • Setting up a new project and using existing templates
  • Set site location and weather data for analysis
  • Setting up user preferences for modelling and simulation

ModelIT & Suncast

  • Create 3D model geometry with the help of various drawing tools.
  • How to add glazing, doors and openings in the model
  • Change orientation of the building
  • Add shades and adjacent buildings into the model
  • Renaming and grouping of spaces in Model IT for simulation and analysis
  • Conduct solar energy and exposure analysis in terms of kWh/m2 or total number of hours exposed
  • Create images and animations of solar shading in and around the building


  • Assign surface properties such as reflectance and transmittance values for the interiors and glazing
  • Conduct daylighting analysis and see lux levels on a working plane
  • Place artificial lights inside a space with the help of a design tool in FlucsPro
  • Conduct artificial lighting analysis

Radiance IES

  • Assign surface properties to the constructions used in the model
  • Conduct glare and lux level study inside a room
  • Create photorealistic 3D images in perspective view

Apache – Building Template Manage

  • Create new construction templates based on material specifications
  • Create profiles that best explains the operation hours of your building
  • Create internal gain input profiles to the space such as lighting, people, equipment etc.

Apache – Cooling load calculations

  • Assign construction templates and thermal templates
  • Assign thermal spaces based on space grouping
  • Create meters and energy sources to quantifying individual energy consumption
  • Conduct heating and cooling load calculation using ASHRAE heat balance method

Apache – Dynamic simulations (load)

  • Analyse cooling load profile for the entire building and specific room performances using Vistapro
  • Option for adding different renewable energy sources such as PV, Wind and CHP
  • Perform dynamic simulation for one full year to see the performance of the building
