Intro To Energy Modeling Quiz

11 questions

  1. Which of the following is NOT true about Energy Modeling?

    There are many Energy modeling software options
    The Building must be completed in order to run an energy model
    Building Energy Modeling simulates a building, on a computer, typically through the course of 1 year.
    Energy Modeling can be a large contribution to LEED
  2. What was one of the examples given for why we need an energy model, instead of using pencil and paper?

    Building components interact with each other and with the weather, and these interactions can be highly complex.
    People make too many mathematical errors using pen and paper
    Pen and paper method is bad for marketing
    It's always faster than pen and paper
  3. Which of the following was NOT listed as a key factor when selecting software?

    Whether you use Macintosh Vs. PC
    Residential/non-residential capabilities
    Load Design Capability
    Cost of Software
  4. Which of the following is a common assumption in Energy-modeling?

    People typically yield 500 Btu/hr of net heat
    Air is completely mixed, or stratified
    It is always important to count all of the light fixtures to yield the total wattage of lights
    All Walls and partitions are typically modeled
  5. Which of the following would most likely need to get modeled?

    An LED desk clock
    Emergency Fire ventilation that only runs if the building is on fire.
    An Elephant in a conditioned indoor enclosure
    A cork bulletin board along a partition
  6. Which of the following is the LEAST likely to be entered in a conventional Energy model?

    The efficiency of the heating and cooling equipment
    The building's geographical location
    The number of pipe fittings used in the plumbing system
    The number of people in the building
  7. Which of the following are combined into one number?

    Lights and plug loads
    Lights and people
    Lights, plug loads, and people
    None of the above
  8. Which of the following are the common types of models listed?

    Ballpark model to make a decision
    Life cycle analysis model to evaluate spending on energy impacting equipment or materials
    Certification models, such as a LEED model
    All of the above
  9. When we model "the building" itself? Which of the following is the most true, per the presentation?

    All of the building zones need to modeled individually, as they exist
    The operating schedule of the building is very important.
    The building control options do not consume energy and do not need to be modeled
    U-values are the only important factor when modeling walls
  10. Which of the following is true regarding building design and energy modeling?

    Energy modeling is always done after the building is designed
    The building design is done by architects.
    Some software packages calculate both load design and the energy model.
    Energy modeling and Load design are always done separately
