This video is an introduction to Geothermal systems and to the role of energy modeling in designing a GCHP system.
The course is written and presented by Ed Lohrenz, an internationally recognized expert on Ground source heat pumps and Founder of GEOptimize. He has written courses for IGSPHA, the authorities on geothermal.
[WARNING: Ed is so passionate and extremely knowledgeable about Geothermal Systems, you will never think about geothermal the same again]
What is a GCHP system
What is a GHX
What makes it different from a conventional HVAC system
The importance of detailed energy modeling in designing a GCHP system to operate efficiently and make it cost-effective to build
The importance of hourly energy modeling
Balancing the loads to and from the GHX and the ability the energy modeler has to manipulate the loads to and from the building
The importance of accurate building schedules
What does the GHX designer need from an energy model
The economics of a GCHP system
This is Ed's only course highlighting geothermal energy specifically for energy-modelers. If you want to model geothermal or consider modeling it, this course will help on every level.
