Multi-Core Simulation Speed Enhancements: ApacheSim
Increase hourly annual simulation speed, by using IES’s ApacheSim simulation engine and the Parallel Simulation Manager feature by using more of the available cores on your computer.
In benchmarking tests on larger building models containing hundreds of zones, with mixed mode HVAC systems the speed ups can be as much as 85%, or your simulation will run in 15% of the time taken for a single core.
You can access this feature in the VE from the Tools menu. Select Preferences > Simulation Tab and ensure you turn off Legacy mode.

What Our Customers Say
We just tested the parallel simulation feature in IESVE 2018 with 8 cores and were able to cut the simulation time down to 35% of the previous serial single core simulation time! This is a huge improvement for our workflow.
