Mon 15 Sep 2014 – Fri 19 Sep 2014
Institute of Technology Carlow, Kilkenny Road, Carlow, Ireland

10 day Certified Passive House Designer/ Consultant Course - Each course is a challenging and intensive course of instruction, and is aimed at qualified and motivated building professionals who have a passion to learn the art of Passive House design, the world’s leading standard in low‐energy, sustainable construction. PART 2 DAY 6 – Passive House Economics Numerous studies and examples show that the passive house standard can be implemented economically. In this part you will learn how you can influence and evaluate on construction and operating costs. You will also learn various methods of economic calculations. Why does the refurbishment with Passive House components have great potential for energy savings – economically optimal and trendsetting. Learn in this part about the benefits and examples of the energy performance of buildings with passive house components. Foundations of economic Passive House: Factors influencing the construction and operating costs Life Cycle Analysis Net Present Value, Annuity, Residual Value Exercises: Examples of calculations of the various methods Economic analysis of an example building Passive House in old buildings: Opportunities, limits, economy Convincing clients ———————————————————————————————————————— DAY 7 - Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) Software Workshop Prerequisites Separate laptop and a switched Microsoft ® Excel 2007 or later, CD drive or USB port Own version of PHPP 8 (2013) – (a demo version can be provided for the training) Basic knowledge of Microsoft ® Excel With the help of the PHPP required for quality assurance calculations can be performed simply and clearly. Included are eg databases for passive house certified components such as windows, glazing and ventilation systems and simplified input functions for surfaces with assignment of U-values. This part provides an overview of the calculation method and, with examples provides an introduction to the work methodology. In the form of lectures and practical exercises you will learn and practice the use of PHPP for a dwelling project that you design in class. Introduction to the methodology with PHPP Principle of heating balance in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13790 Energy reference area, envelope surface, volumes Transmission heat losses Solar heat gains and influence of shading Calculation of ventilation heat losses Influence of building airtightness Calculation of annual heating and building heating Domestic hot water demand and solar water heating Primary energy characteristic value for heating, hot water, consumables and household electricity demand Summer case: temporary shading, natural and mechanical ventilation, calculate the frequency of overheating ———————————————————————————————————————— DAY 8 – Sketchup DesignPH Plugin Prerequisites Own laptop with Microsoft ® Excel 2007 or later, CD drive or USB port Own use license manual from PHPP 8 (2013) * Basic knowledge of Microsoft ® Excel DesignPH plugin (Demo version will suffice if available) What’s covered: introduction and practice of Google Sketchup tools along with some exercises. Manual Energy Balance calculation as to understand principals behind the Plugin. DesignPH drawing exercise. TFA, Fabric Elements, U-Values, Climate, Components. Using PHPP 8.5 import/export tool. PHPP 8.5 overview and adjustment after import. ———————————————————————————————————————— DAY 9 – Thermal Modelling – Workshop This part provides you with the knowledge on how to use the software and how to analyse thermal bridges in order to determine the psi-value and temperature factors. This workshop is suited to beginners who are new to Thermal Modelling. They aim to impart a basic understanding of how the software can be used to analyse thermal bridges, and how to calculate Psi-values taking into consideration the boundary conditions set by national standards and EN ISO 10211. CONTENT: Boundary conditions of EN ISO 10211 Calculating the psi-value Ψ Calculation of the fRSI temperature factor to determine mould growth Practical instruction. Foundation Detail in accordance to ISO EN ISO 10211.
