Simulation

We offer so much more than energy modeling. We also offer lighting, daylighting, thermal comfort, solar radiation and computational fluid dynamic simulations.
We utilize several energy simulation software programs and tools for both commercial and proprietary. Our professionals are experienced with current technology and the requirements for Title 24, ASHRAE, and LEED. Our team is experienced and credentialed in major modeling software programs as well as emerging technologies. The technologies we use include:

  • EnergyPlus
  • EnergyPro
  • Ecotect
  • eQuest
  • Trace
  • Radiance
  • Daysim
  • Rhino
  • Grasshopper
  • Ladybug

The majority of simulations are for energy optimization, also referred to as energy models and are widely used for code compliance and green building certification.

Energy Modeling
However whole building simulations can provide a more in depth look into energy efficiency. tk1sc also offers lighting, daylighting, thermal comfort, solar radiation and computational fluid dynamic simulations.

Lighting & Daylighting
tk1sc is highly experienced in improving performance of general lighting systems in offices, classrooms, hallways and parking garages. Our team members perform daylighting analysis and simulation using Radiance and Daysim in various software applications. Most of the daylighting studies we have performed have been combined with façade and building system optimization studies and design. Our lighting and daylighting modeling services include:

  • Auditing and Measurement
  • Retrofit and tuning
  • Selecting energy efficient systems
