Webinar: Designing and Modeling HVAC Systems with SystemOutliner

Date:  December 7, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. ET

Presenter: Kyle Benne, National Renewable Energy Laboratory

This webinar introduces a new software application, SystemOutliner, developed at NREL to facilitate the design and simulation of HVAC systems using EnergyPlus and OpenStudio. The key user features of SystemOutliner will be discussed, including the ability to assemble custom HVAC systems through a drag-and-drop interface and rapidly model common HVAC system types using built-in templates. SystemOutliner is designed to complement the more mature, geometry-focused features of OpenStudio; a demonstration will be given on how to integrate the new tool into the OpenStudio workflow. Time will be reserved to discuss the current feature set, as well as critical next steps in the development of the tool.

The webinar is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's Building Technologies Program.  Register for this webinar.
