A control system is at the heart of every building's energy use and its Indoor Air Quality. From standalone packaged pump controllers to sophisticated Building Automation Systems, the performance of building equipment rests largely on the design, installation, commissioning, and operation of its control. Yet, study after study by well recognized bodies indicate that most control systems are not performing as intended. Furthermore, studies show that most could achieve a significant improvement over and above the original intent at little additional cost, but fail to do so. Building owners, tenants, and managers can no longer afford to ignore the potential energy savings and associated reductions in green house gas emissions.
This course will take you through the steps necessary to understanding the basic principles: the critical steps in design, the necessary detailed descriptions required by the installers, the commissioning process, staged acceptance, implementation, performance analysis, and successful day-to-day operation. Along the way, the various backgrounds of the attendees will have ample opportunity to discuss and debate the "dos and don'ts" within each one of these steps.
This is a unique opportunity for designers, contractors, commissioning engineers, and operation personnel to understand, and discuss the experiences of the others, and learn from a presenter whose career has encompassed all 4 facets.
The course is structured so as to allow those with some experience in the design of control systems to forego the first day.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND:
Mechanical design engineers, control systems designers, controls contractors, energy auditors, measurement and verification specialists, commissioning engineers, facility managers, and building operations specialists.
