2018-12-23 06:28:57 -0600 marked best answer LEED Occupancy, design data vs ashrae

Hi, is there a specific rule for modeling occupancy in the proposed (and therefore in the baseline) leed energy model?

Does it have only to be consistent with the design documents as showed in Table 3.1.1?

What if the declared occupancy is different from Ashrae occupancy? Which one should I use?

The 90.1 do not specify anything else about it.

I'm checking the table "Zone summary" table of a model (eplustbl.htm file) and I found, in the bottom, the field "Not Part of Total".

In my case is not 0 and is greater than the sum of "Conditioned Total" and "Unconditioned Total". What is it referring to?

Thank you in advance

@julien marrec can you confirm that I'm right?

2017-08-02 11:25:21 -0600 commented answer Lighting controls in Leed certification

Just to avoid misunderstandings, if I have 50% occupancy at a given time, the lighting at that time must be 450W [(1000W

2017-08-02 09:45:13 -0600 marked best answer Lighting controls in Leed certification

I would need some explanations regarding the proposed building lighting control for LEED certification, particularly in Table G3.1.6.g and Table G3.2 of Standard 90.1-2007.

If I have an occupancy sensor in a surface area greater than 460 m² with a installed power of 1000 W, should I have to insert a 900W (10% less) power in my proposed building model? Is this power reduction calculated to take into account the lower energy consumption that will occur due to the occupancy sensor?

If the occupancy is greater than zero, the lighting power must be nominal or must be proportional to occupancy? Remaining in the previous example, if I have 50% occupancy, should the lighting power be 900W or 450W?

I'm modeling a Leed Baseline model.

The original building has a wide unconditioned roof. Should I consider it as a shading surface? Should I delete the unconditioned roof in the baseline model?

I'm modeling a leed Baseline model with system 8.

My question is simple: how many air loops should I use? I've read (I don't remember where) I should use a single VAV for every floor, is it true? What if a have a huge building with just one floor?

I just was scared I missed some exceptions similar to table TABLE G3.1.3.7 (that set a chiller power limit). Thank you!
