Course Outline:

Day 1

TRNSYS Introduction and Concepts Part 1 (presentation)
This session covers basic concepts, input data, working with simulation results and an overview of peripheral TRNSYS tools.

TRNSYS Introduction and Concepts Part 2 (presentation)
This session will go into greater depth about the input file, the input file keywords and simulation control, radiation processing and the TRNSYS solver.

Developing a First Project (hands-on session)
Students will put together and run a first TRNSYS system simulation. This session will focus on gaining familiarity with the graphical interface, the TRNSYS Simulation Studio, and the fundamental concepts of creating TRNSYS simulations.


Day 2

TRNSYS Systems Simulation (hands-on session)
We will continue to use the graphical interface, the TRNSYS Simulation Studio, to develop more robust simulations. The attendees will learn how to drive simulations and extract the information that they need for analysis. Simulations will develop more detail and complexity as the attendees will learn how to correctly assemble and debug their TRNSYS simulations.

Advanced Topics (hands-on session)
Time Reserved for Discussing Topics of Interests and Specific Projects: parametric studies, optimization, writing new components, developing a TRNSED application, and advanced systems simulations.


Day 3

Simulating Buildings in TRNSYS (presentation)
This session covers concepts associated with simulation of multizone buildings in TRNSYS. Evolution of the building model, input data, rudimentary physics of the building model, tips for TRNSYS3D and analysis of results will be addressed.

Developing a TRNSYS3D Building Model (hands-on session)
By using the TRNSYS3D plugin for Google Sketchup (TM), the attendees will create the building envelope and shading groups for their TRNSYS building.

Developing a Building Simulation (hands-on session)
Information from the Simulating Buildings in TRNSYS presentation will be put into practice. Adding gains, lighting, infiltration, simulating the building in Energy Rate Control and also in Temperature Level Control will be addressed.


Day 4
Optional

Air Flow Modeling using CONTAM (presentation)
A powerful possibility in TRNSYS is modeling air flow using links between TRNSYS and COMIS or TRNSYS and CONTAM. This session covers how to carry out such a combined simulation.

Other Topics (hands-on session)
We try to keep the class size small so that we can cover topics that are of particular interest to the attendees. Central plants? Fuel Cells? Swimming pools? Anaerobic digesters? The thermodynamics of brewing beer? You name it, there is a good chance that we have modeled it.
