Loopfields and Piping Design

Course Description:

The goal of this new workshop series is to provide the geothermal designer with working knowledge the Ground Loop Design (GLD) 2010 software to effectively design and optimize the loopfields and piping in a geothermal system.  We will:

  1. Learn how to simulate and optimize numerous ways of configuring the design of the loopfield and piping using the GLD software.
  2. Correctly match the heat pump with the loopfield.
  3. Design a headering system that uses flows and pipe sizes that work for peak operation and are purgeable
  4. Perform simulations and compare results using data derived from actual student projects and discuss the outcome.

The course will take the student through design steps with the industry leading GLD 2010 Software Suite.  Discover the design simulation power of the GLD software and how to use it effectively to optimize a loopfield and mechanical system.  This software training series will go from start to finish utilizing your building loads to design the loopfields and piping systems,   including a full session dedicated to presentation of example designs from the instructor as well as actual system designs from the course participants. Two-way interaction with an our software experts provides the geothermal professional with hand-on experience using GLD 2010 software to design and optimize a GSHP system.

Summary Course Outline with Expanded Workshop Descriptions:

WEEK 1:  Loopfield System with GLD 2010

Part 1: Groundloop Design Overview; Design Principles
Part 2: Loads, Loads Modules and Heat Pumps

The objective of this series is to provide the geothermal designer with working knowledge of how to use the GLD 2010 Software Suite to design and optimize systems. Learn how to configure the design of the loopfield and piping and correctly match the heat pump with the building and loopfield to develop a complete system. Utilizing the industry leading GLD 2010 Software Suite, this series will provide an understanding into how to use GLD 2010 from start to finish in the preparation of realistic designs for different situations, including a full session dedicated to example designs from the instructor as well as looking at some actual system designs from the course participants. Two-way interaction with a GLD Software expert provides the geothermal professional with the  knowledge needed to effectively use the GLD 2010 Software Suite to design and optimize a GSHP system.In today’s energy world, a geothermal system is a leading “green” solution that offers a lifetime of potential savings of precious resources and money for the end user. GLD 2010 is an extremely powerful design tool in the hands of a geothermal professional and is a critical part of developing an effective design. For the geothermal professional, using GLD 2010 will provide a significant competitive advantage, including system performance that works by design and not by accident. Training in the use of this sophisticated tool and understanding the design process is an investment into your business, your customers and your industry.

Who Should Attend
This class is intended for professional designers and engineers that need to use the GLD 2010 Software Suite effectively to develop an optimized system design along with other system tools. The target audience includes engineers, architects, installers and other experienced geothermal professionals. It is also suitable for those who have been selftaught and would like to learn and develop a much better understanding of the software and how it provides flexible simulations to arrive at sound system designs.

Upon completion of this class, the student will be able to use their knowledge of the GLD Software Suite to more
confidently design appropriate loopfields and piping solutions. Student and instructor interaction will allow participants to recognize and utilize best practices and share experiences with other professionals. After completion of all three of the workshop units, the geothermal professional can additionally use the GLD2010 financial tools to quickly develop accurate lifecycle cost modeling that demonstrates the ROI benefits of a particular geothermal design when compared to conventional and much less efficient mechanical systems.

It is recommended that the student have a working knowledge of:
1. The Microsoft® Windows® OS Family
2. Access to broadband internet and VOIP or telephone
3. Familiarity with HVAC terminology
4. A general understanding of geothermal ground source heat pump systems.

Each Student Receives

  • Trial Version of GLD 2010 Software
  • GTI Certificate of completion
