Tech Session:

BMS Basics for Consulting Engineers

Tech Session Duration: 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM

Tech Session Location: Berlin Room

Tech Session Description:

  • Define the BMS point
  • Recognize different types of inputs and outputs
  • Review controller types and network layouts
  • Discuss BMS protocols and understand how they affect BMS and equipment
  • Learn about software and advanced functionality

 

The intent of this presentation is to discuss the fundamental components of a building management system including input and output points, controllers, networks and software.  The characteristics of each component are discussed as well as how a typical building management system is put together.  How building management system design can be shown on construction documents and critical information to review during the submittal phase is also covered.

Dinner Presentation:

ASHRAE Guideline 36

Dinner Session Duration: 7:15 PM to 8:30 PM

Dinner Session Location: Cromwell Room

Dinner Presentation Description: 

  • What are high performance sequences of operation for HVAC systems?
  • What is ASHRAE Guideline 36?
  • What are the benefits of these high performance sequences of operation?
  • How to specify high performance sequences of operation for ASHRAE Guideline 36
  • The future of ASHRAE Guideline 36

 

This presentation will provide an introduction to “High-Performance Sequences of Operation for HVAC Systems” as described in ASHRAE Guideline 36-2018. This guideline defines best-in-class sequences of operation for HVAC systems that help maximize energy efficiency, improve occupant comfort, and provide real-time fault detection and diagnostics (FDD). It was developed to provide a reference set of high-performance control sequences for air-side heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) equipment, including multiple-zone variable-air-volume (VAV) air handlers and associated terminal equipment. The intent is that high-performance buildings will perform better if well-known sequences of operation are specified and controls contractors refine their products to correctly implement them.
