August 17, 2016 BSUG: eHarmony for Energy Modeling - Hits and Misses in Matching Energy Modeling Tools and Energy Modeling Projects

BIO:
David holds a Bachelor of Science in Engineering from Swarthmore College and a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison. His work efforts are divided between energy simulation consulting practice and energy modeling software development, support, and teaching. He has been a guest researcher at the University of Wisconsin – Madison and at the Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment in Nice, France and has been a partner at Thermal Energy System Specialists in Madison, Wisconsin since 2004.

DESCRIPTION:
The goal of the talk is put into practice the perhaps self-evident but easy to ignore notion that the success of an energy simulation project often hinges on the choice of analysis tool. To that end we will look with a critical eye at the details of some modeling projects that TESS has carried out using one such tool called TRNSYS. The talk will also provide a brief overview of other tools in an effort to place TRNSYS within the wider energy system analysis landscape.


TIME: 12:00 - 1:00 pm MT
