Key Learning

Key Learning

  • Learn how to specify and act on relationships between building form, energy use, and the potential for power generation
  • Learn how to test assumptions about building design and performance
  • Discover the effects of detailed design decisions on overall building-energy use
  • Learn how to optimize the design model with parametric tools in Dynamo

Description

Description

Whether building for net zero or reducing building utility bills, distributed solar has become a common component of the modern design process. To consider photovoltaic, solar hot water, or passive solar from rooftop or remote panels, or to build integrated units in building design, designers need to understand solar-energy-generation potential as an integrated part of the design process. This class will show how to use built-in tools in Revit software and FormIt software to understand the potential of solar power from the very beginning of conceptual design, and to generate and analyze a complete solar design all the way to detailed panel layouts and efficiencies and their effects on overall building-energy performance. We will also show advanced processes using Dynamo solar analysis nodes to parameterize, automate, and optimize your solar power installation.
