Sept. 1, 2003: ASHRAE Offers Course On DDC Retrofits
Direct Digital Control Retrofit: From Project Planning Through Performance Verification is one of four new ASHRAE Learning Institute courses that will be available at ASHRAE's 2004 Winter Meeting, Jan. 24-28, in Anaheim, Calif.
Mark Hydeman, P.E., a principal at Taylor Engineering, Alameda, Calif., will serve as instructor. "This is a practical course grounded by experience that presents a process and key issues for delivering a successful DDC retrofit," Hydeman stated.
The course is said to use case studies to illustrate the delivery of a project from early planning through the final punch list. It addresses an array of issues, such as determining the scope of the retrofit, when to use open protocols, keys to successful DDC specifications, and a process for performance verification of the installed control system.
The course includes various examples, including energy efficient sequences, detailed points list, and analysis of monitored data to troubleshoot the control system.
