Energy Universityng in a conference room where the room was just too hot? Or too cold? Did you find it uncomfortable and hard to concentrate? Have youever considered how much money is wasted when things like that are not addressed? What's the solution? The control system withi


Part I:

  • Summarize what a control system is, and the two main types of control.
  • Describe different types ofcontrol loop.
  • Differentiate the categories of sensors, controllers, and controlled devices 
Part II: 

  • Describe the categories and purpose of sensors commonly found in a building control system.
  • List types of devices within each sensor category, for example, within temperature, there are sensors for outside air, room or zone temperature, and equipment temperature.
  • Identify common problems with placement of sensors.   
Part III: 

  • Identify the five controller loop responses.
  • Review the terms associated with controller loop responses 
Part IV: 

  • Describe the "Two-Position" control response.
  • Explain how floating control methods are addressed.
  • Employ an interactive example which simulates a changing variable air volume box.   

  • Define the proportional control responses.
  • Explain the addition of integral and derivative terms to form P-I and P-I-D responses.
  • Explain the appropriate use of each control response. 
Part VI: 

  • Understand how tuning the three terms in a P-I-D response adjust the control for particular needs.
  • Explainwhy floating response is more appropriate for fast responding systems.
  • Identify specific uses for each type of response.  
Part VII:

  • See how proportional control may oscillate and stabilize at a point above the setpoint.
  • Show how an integral term helps a control loop to achieve a result closer to the setpoint.
  • Illustrate how a derivativetermhelps to prevent overshoots.
