Building Control Systems
Oct 7 - 8, 2019 /
Course Code: 10-0510-2366
After participating in this course, you will be able to:
- Understand building automation system components and how they operate together
- Apply simple control strategies that will save energy
- Improve the operating efficiency of automation systems
- Maintain the performance of automation systems
A building automation system (BAS) has one of the largest impacts on a building’s energy use, indoor air quality and maintenance costs. The majority of automation systems are used marginally in terms of their potential, and as a result a key resource to decrease energy use and functionality stands idle. Education, documentation, and regular reviews have been shown to maximize building automation system performance.
This course provides the opportunity to understand and maximize the performance of building automation systems.
- Control system basics
- Building automation system elements
- Energy codes and standards relating to BAS’s
- Energy conservation strategies and retrofits
- Basic elements of design specifications
- Commissioning, retro-commissioning and ongoing commissioning of BAS’s
Who Should Attend:
Building Operators • Facility Managers • Senior Building personnel • Property Managers • Engineers • Technicians and Technologists
