The current series of videos starts to tell the story of how Simergy is structured and how it can be utilized to do a range of different things. The story will continue to be developed and additional videos will be added that go into more detail on the Simergy 3s as well as expert topics.
Simergy – Overview
Simergy – High Level
Chunking Method = Simergy 3s [6 min]
As with any tool or topic that is powerful and complex, it is important to "Chunk" what you take on and what you try to remember, so that the content is broken down in effective "chunks". This allows there to be more triggers that can assist learning, retaining and recalling more things.
Using Simergy Guides [3 min]
Guides on specific topics, such as Workspaces, Natural Ventilation, Daylighting and Results are available to provide you a more focused look and explanation of those capabilities, and to assist you getting up and running with Simergy more effectively.
Importing and Creating Geometry
IFC Model Import [13 min]
Demonstrates the Industry Foundation Class Import Workflow from import to thermal zone designation to HVAC system layout
Geometry Creation - Part 1 [7 min]
Walks through how to create the site context using free form and typical shapes. Also introduces the project component tree
Creating HVAC Systems
HVAC System Component Shapes [8 min]
A light hearted look at the component shapes and the important role they play in the HVAC diagramming approach within Simergy.
Creating & Assigning Zone HVAC Group [2 min]
The process involved to assign a custom Zone HVAC Group to your project.
Creating an Air Loop [3 min]
The process involved in creating the supply side, the demand side, and the controls for an Air Loop for a project.
Creating Water Loops [4 min]
The process involved in creating the supply side, the demand side, and the controls for multiple water loops for a project.
Simulation Configurations [3 min]
A short video demonstrating how Simulation Configurations can be set up and edited from the same workspace, as well as where to go in Simergy Help to find out more information about setting up Output Requests (Libraries) and Output Request Sets (Templates).
Reports [3 min]
A quick video on some of the key features of the Reports Workspace, and how it is the first stop to assess if the simulation ran successfully and what things would benefit further investigation using Results Visualization.
Results Visualization [11 min]
Introduces the key features of the Results Visualization workspace showing how to set up multiple chart and table views enabling detailed investigation and comparisons
Libraries & Templates
Adding a Source Library [3 min]
A source Library is at the top of the Data Chain in Simergy. It is the database that contains library entries for the different libraries categories and templates, and the short video shows how you can add one to your Simergy project.
Creating Schedules [8 min]
Walks through a project scenario for a school developing schedule profiles, a special days calendar and learn how to associate both with different schedule types
Building a Zone HVAC Group Template [5 min]
You'll see how to set up a new Zone HVAC Group Template that we'll save to the Source Library, so that you can use it on any energy models that you build in Simergy.
