Advanced VAV Control Sequences
The Iowa Energy Center will sponsor a half day seminar focusing on advanced VAV control sequences. Steven Taylor of Taylor Engineering, Alameda, CA is the featured speaker. Mr. Taylor is a professional engineer and ASHRAE Fellow with over 30 years of commercial and institutional HVAC system design experience.

This seminar will summarize recent ASHRAE Research Projects such as:

  • RP 1455, “Advanced Control Sequences for HVAC Systems – Phase I Air Distribution and Terminal Systems.”
  • RP 1515, “Thermal and Air Quality Acceptability in Buildings that Reduce Energy by Reducing Minimum Airflow from Overhead Diffusers.”
  • RP 1547, “CO2-based Demand Controlled Ventilation for Multiple Zone HVAC Systems.”

Topics will include:

  • VAV Box Control Sequences
  • Zone Groups & Modes
  • AHU Control Sequences
  • Demand Controlled Ventilation for VAV Systems
  • Automatic Fault Detection and Diagnostics

Optimizing Chilled Water Plant Controls
The Central Iowa Chapter of ASHRAE will sponsor Mr. Taylor’s afternoon seminar, Optimizing Chilled Water Plant Controls, which is based primarily on the background research performed in the creation of the ASHRAE Journal Series, “Optimizing the Design and Control of Chilled Water Plants”, published in 2011 and 2012, particularly Part 5: Optimized Control Sequences published June 2012.

Topics will include:

  • Quick Summary of Chilled Water System Design
  • Determining Optimized Sequences
  • Chilled Water Pump Control
  • Chilled Water Temperature and DP Setpoint Reset
  • Tower Fan Speed Control
  • Condenser Water Pump Control
  • Chiller Staging

Questions: Contact Britt Vincent at bvincent@mechsales.com or (515) 276-9005.

PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST REGISTER FOR BOTH EVENTS SEPARATELY.
