HVAC ePrimer - exciting training tool for HVAC & Cx techs

HVAC ePrimer is an interactive tool designed to introduce fundamental HVAC concepts to students. The tool makes these concepts come alive by creating a real-time simulation of a simple HVAC system.

Students can move through the 3D simulation, viewing each system component as it operates. These components -- the VAV box, fan economizer and so on -- visually change according to user inputs and simulation calculations. Air particles change color. Water flows through the coils.



Behind the user interface, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab's SPARK simulator crunches the numbers, updating the simulation every few seconds with realistic data. As the student changes input data, SPARK adjusts the output variables accordingly.
