Building Science Research Centre of International Institute of Information Technology Hyderabad (IIIT-Hyderabad) will conduct a short course on building energy simulation from February 12 to 16. The course is mainly aimed at architects, civil engineers, HVAC and electrical consultants, energy auditors, green building facilitators/consultants, ECBC third party assessors, ECBC master trainers, ECBC experts, etc. ECBC is an initiative of Ministry of Power, Government of India brought out as a first step towards promoting energy efficiency in the building sector.
This course is basically aimed at developing and improving skills and knowledge requirements needed for carrying out energy simulations for ECBC (Energy Conservation Building Code). Since ECBC has become mandatory for commercial buildings, reliance on simulation tools has increased in the recent past. The course will cover intermediate level topics like modelling chilled water and VRF systems, introduction to CFD and natural ventilation. It will consist of several tutorials and project to show compliance with ECBC 2017. On the last day of the course, that is, on he fourth day, there will an exam.
Supported by Indian Green Building Council, ASCI, the course will be handled by academicians and practitioners.
