BOC 1004 # HVAC Controls Fundamentals
|Offered by||Northwest Energy Efficiency Council|
Worcester, MA 01610
Participants will learn the fundamentals of automatic control systems for building mechanical systems to target possible inefficiencies in their HVAC systems and to evaluate potential problems as part of an enhanced operation and maintenance program. Participantswill be introduced to Building Automation Systems (BAS) and the graphic user interface as a cost effective tool to review real timebuilding data, identify problems, and verify proper performance for air handling and central plant systems.
At the completion of HVAC Controls Fundamentals a participant will be able to:
Interpret basic control drawings, sequence of operations, and DDC graphics to understand HVAC building control strategies and applications.
Access graphical user interfaces from a building#s BAS system.
Articulate expected modes of building operation for verification.
Prepare screen checkdata forms and record data.
Compare expected modes of operation to recorded data.
Confirm observations with data trending.
Develop key performance indicators to ensure that correct operation persists.
