Create Typical Building from Model

Description

Takes a model with space and stub space types, and assigns constructions, schedules, internal loads, hvac, and other loads such as exterior lights and service water heating. The end result is somewhat like a custom protptye model with user geometry, but it may use different HVAC systems.

Modeler Description

Initially this was intended for stub space types, but it is possible that it will be run on models tha talready have internal loads, schedules, or constructions that should be preserved. Set it up to support addition at later date of bool args to skip specific types of model elements.

Taxonomy

Arguments

Target Standard

Name: template, Type: Choice, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

HVAC System Type

Name: system_type, Type: Choice, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

HVAC System Delivery Type

How the HVAC system delivers heating or cooling to the zone. Name: hvac_delivery_type, Type: Choice, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

HVAC Heating Source

The primary source of heating used by HVAC systems in the model. Name: htg_src, Type: Choice, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

HVAC Cooling Source

The primary source of cooling used by HVAC systems in the model. Name: clg_src, Type: Choice, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Kitchen Exhaust MakeUp Air Calculation Method

Determine logic to identify dining or cafe zones to provide makeup air to kitchen exhaust. Name: kitchen_makeup, Type: Choice, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Exterior Lighting Zone

Identify the Exterior Lighitng Zone for the Building Site. Name: exterior_lighting_zone, Type: Choice, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Add Constructions to Model

Construction Set will be appied to entire building Name: add_constructions, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Add Space Type Loads to Model

Populate existing space types in model with internal loads. Name: add_space_type_loads, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Add Elevators to Model

Elevators will be add directly to space in model vs. being applied to a space type. Name: add_elevators, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Add Exterior Lights to Model

Multiple exterior lights objects will be added for different classes of lighting such as parking and facade. Name: add_exterior_lights, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Onsite Parking Fraction

If set to 0 no exterior lighting for parking will be added Name: onsite_parking_fraction, Type: Double, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Add Exhaust Fans to Model

Depending upon building type exhaust fans can be in kitchens, restrooms or other space types Name: add_exhaust, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Add Service Water Heating to Model

This will add both the supply and demand side of service water heating. Name: add_swh, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Add Thermostats

Add Thermost to model based on Space Type Standards information of spaces assigned to thermal zones. Name: add_thermostat, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Add HVAC System to Model

Add HVAC System and thermostats to model Name: add_hvac, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Clean Model of non-gemoetry objects

Only removes objects of type that are selected to be added. Name: remove_objects, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Use Upstream Argument Values

When true this will look for arguments or registerValues in upstream measures that match arguments from this measure, and will use the value from the upstream measure in place of what is entered for this measure. Name: use_upstream_args, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

Enable Daylight Savings.

By default this will force dayligint savsings to be enabled. Set to false if in a location where DST is not followed, or if needed for specific use case. Name: enable_dst, Type: Boolean, Units: , Required: true, Model Dependent: false

You can’t perform that action at this time.
