EGV 2251 Energy Control Strategies

This course covers the use of utility data to conduct a “Lean Energy Analysis,” utility rate structures, the use of both whole building computer simulation and discrete system computer simulation to estimate building and system energy use, energy demand and carbon footprint. Two classroom, two lab hours per week.

Prerequisites: EGV 1251

Course Outcomes
  • Identify the components in utility charges such as generation, distribution, demand-ratchet, and service.
  • Use discrete system software to estimate reduction in system energy use, energy demand, carbon footprint, and cost with the implementation of energy saving opportunities.
  • Use of whole building simulation software to estimate the reduction in a building’s energy use, energy demand, carbon footprint, and cost with the implementation of energy saving opportunities.
  • Use utility data to quantify weather dependent energy use, production dependent energy use, and independent energy use.
