This time will be used to debug models and answer questions.
Prior to the workshop, install Dymola 2016 FD01 and the Modelica Buildings library as described below.
Dymola 2016 FD01
Install Dymola 2016 FD01 trial version from Dassault. The instructions to access the non-trial license for the training will be sent by email.
Install a C/C++ compiler such as Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2013 from Microsoft.
To install the Linux 64 bit version of Dymola, proceed as follows:
Modelica Buildings library
To install the Buildings library version 3.0,
- download Buildings 3.0.0,
- unzip the file, and to test the installation after you updated the license as described in the email,
- open with Dymola the file
- open the model
- select from the pull-down menu ‘‘Commands->Simulate and plot’’. This will simulate the model and generate a plot.
Some users had the error message ‘‘Error connecting to Dymola license server’’ when they were connected to VPN. If this is the case,
- disconnect from vpn, and
- in Dymola, enter the port number 27000 under ‘‘Help -> License -> Setup -> Port (optional).’’.
For the server name, please see the email as we are not allowed to share it publicly.
Failed compilation on Windows
Some users could not compile and simulate the example. If this is the case, try to adjust the path to your compiler under ‘‘Simulation-> Setup -> Compiler’’.
The workshop will be held onsite at LBNL, in building 90, room 3122.
All attendees will automatically be added to the LBNL security access list if they have registered for this workshop. We can only accommodate 15 registrants.
Berkeley Lab shuttle service
The Blue Route Shuttle takes you directly to building 90.
The Berkeley Lab Blue Route shuttle runs frequently from the Downtown Berkeley BART station to the lab (Uphill). It picks up passengers from various stops in downtown Berkeley. For locations, please refer to http://www2.lbl.gov/Workplace/Facilities/Support/Busses/off-site_blue.html#sched.
Note that the lab shuttle stop closest to BART is located at the corner of Addison Street and Shattuck Avenue, on the same side as (and next to) the Bank of America.
The shuttle stops will all be marked with the Berkeley Lab shuttle bus sign.
A site Map to the location is at http://www2.lbl.gov/Workplace/lab-site-map.html.
An interactive map to the location is at http://map.lbl.gov/#UMAP_2012091840117%7CBLD_2012092167088.
For detailed information including schedules, please see LBNL Shuttle Service at http://www2.lbl.gov/Workplace/Facilities/Support/Busses/off-site_blue.html#sched, or http://www.nextbus.com/#!/lbl/blue/up/bart.
Important: You are required to show a Shuttle Pass, along with a government issued photo ID (Drivers License or Passport) in order to access the lab.
