ASHRAE San Diego October 2017 Meeting

High Performance Sequences of Operation for HVAC Systems



Steve Taylor will present a summary of ASHRAE Guideline 36P: High Performance Sequences of Operation for HVAC Systems focusing on the ASHRAE research projects used to develop and validate these best-of-class sequences.  The research projects include RP-1455 Advanced Control Sequences for HVAC Systems − Phase I VAV Systems; RP-1515 Thermal and Air Quality Acceptability in Buildings that Reduce Energy by Reducing Minimum Airflow from Overhead Diffusers; RP-1747 Implementation of RP-1547 CO2-based Demand Controlled Ventilation for Multiple Zone HVAC Systems in Direct Digital Systems; RP-1353 Stability and Accuracy of VAV Box Control at Low Flows; RP-1587 Control Loop Performance Assessment; and RP-1711 Advanced Sequences of Operation for HVAC Systems – Phase II Central Plants and Hydronic Systems.  The intent of Guideline 36 is to improve the performance of building HVAC systems while simultaneously reducing the time and costs of engineering, programming, and commissioning HVAC control systems.
