The course starts by introducing the basic concepts of control and the vocabulary necessary to understand HVAC controls use in the of designing HVAC systems. This will take the student through the basic elements and building blocks of HVAC controls and show how comfort control systems create the desired equipment responses for maintaining room environmental condition set points. Students learn about what DDC Controllers are, what a Sequence of Operation is, the importance of a Sequence of Operations. Class discussions will include the various temperature control strategies and HVAC systems that can be employed to maximize comfort provided to the building occupants. You will be exposed to the different types of controls and DDC control networks being installed and the basic concepts of control interoperability. The four key management methods available through DDC control networks will be addressed and students will be shown how to specify network configuration and functionality. At the conclusion of this class students will be better able to discuss and specify HVAC control systems. This class is classroom with several workshops allowing students to demonstrate the concepts covered in class.
