BOC 1004: HVAC Controls Fundamentals

Event ID: A14816
Info: Nov 2, 2017 • Thu • 8:00am-4:00pm • 1 mtg • UHM Krauss 12 • $200 (General) • Sweater and brown bag lunch suggested • Register/withdraw by Aug 31
With: RJ Ritter

BOC 1004: HVAC Controls Fundamentals introduces you to automatic control systems for building mechanical systems and equipment and HVAC control sequences and programming.

Learn to target possible inefficiencies in your HVAC system and to evaluate potential problems as part of an enhanced operation and maintenance program. Introduces Building Automation Systems (BAS) and the graphic user interface as a cost effective tool to review real time data to identify problems and verify proper performance for air handling and central plant systems as part of an enhanced operation and maintenance program. Covers the development and use of key performance indicators (KPIs) to ensure persistence of performance. An HVAC Controls Review project is due by the start of the next course, BOC 1005: Indoor Environmental Quality.

By the end of this course, you are able to:

  1. Interpret basic control drawings, sequence of operations, and DDC graphics to understand HVAC building control strategies and applications.

  2. Access graphical user interfaces from a building’s BAS system.

  3. Articulate expected modes of building operation for verification.

  4. Prepare screen check data forms and record data.

  5. Compare expected modes of operation to recorded data.

  6. Confirm observations with data trending.

  7. Develop key performance indicators to ensure that correct operation persists.

To qualify for Building Operator Certification, 1004: HVAC Controls Fundamentals must be completed with BOC 1001, 1002, 1003, 1005, 1006, and 1009.

The United States Green Building Council (www.gbci.org) has approved the core BOC Level I curriculum for continuing education hours toward the LEED Credential Maintenance Program. BOC 1004 is approved to earn LEED credential holders 8 continuing education hours.
