Class Description

Comfort conditions for spaces in a commercial building may be achieved in one of two basic ways: by applying single zone units to each space or by using systems that provide control to multiple spaces. This course covers the skills and knowledge needed to design systems that control multiple zones using all air systems. Two of the basic all-air zoning systems Variable Volume/Variable Temperature (VVT) and Variable Air Volume (VAV) are covered in depth. Other all-air systems (Double Duct, Multizone, Etc) are also discussed. In this course participants learn how to zone a building when more than one building zone is served from one air handler. Variable volume/variable temperature systems allow constant volume packaged equipment to meet the varying load requirements of a zoned building. Variable air volume systems use applied and special packaged equipment to change air volume to achieve space conditions in each building zone. Students learn to design for the impacts of these multiple zone systems and their effects on design decisions, load estimates, equipment selections, room air distribution, duct design, and control sequence. Participants use workshops to apply the material covered in the class to a typical project. Computer-assisted work sessions are used to practice the skills.

Students will learn to:

  • Apply the design process to VVT and VAV systems.
  • Choose building control zones and group zones for controllability.
  • Design for VVT air distribution and properly determine bypass requirements.
  • Distinguish between the types of variable volume terminals available and select the appropriate type for the project.
  • Layout and select variable volume air terminals and diffusers for good room air motion, and layout a duct system.
  • Layout and select a packaged system for a VVT system.
  • Choose the appropriate method of meeting heating requirements with VVT and VAV type systems.
  • Layout and select diffusers, terminals, packaged rooftops and applied DX air handlers for a VAV system and design a medium pressure duct system.
  • How to establish required fan performance for VVT and VAV systems.
  • Determine the control sequence and layout the control system components.
  • Apply VAV principles to underflow distribution systems.

A cumulative score of 70% is required to pass this course. The score is a combination of attendance, class participation, and a demonstration of skills and knowledge through quizzes and/or work sessions.

Suggested Prerequisites: CSD400, and a working knowledge of computers. Students are encouraged to bring their own computer, but it is not required.
