April 2020 ASHRAE Dinner Meeting
April 09, 2020
6:45 PM - 8:30 PM
Add to Calendar
- 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.
- 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.
