Demonstration of Tiered Trim and Respond Method

Tiered Trim and Respond (TTR) method is a version of the Trim and Respond (TR) method in resetting variable-air-volume air handling unit or rooftop unit supply air static pressure setpoint to save significant fan energy in partial load conditions. This session explains why supply air static pressure reset saves energy, compares the difference between TR and TTR, and then discusses an ESTCP field demonstration of implementing TTR at five DoD installations in detail. The five test sites use four different building automation systems to control their HVAC equipment.

Building Monitoring, Data Analysis and Troubleshooting

Building automation systems (BAS) are utilized in many buildings for controlling and monitoring the HVAC systems of the facility. The BAS provides a wealth of real-time information to the building operator about these systems. If utilized appropriately, the BAS can be viewed prior to physically going to investigate an issue. Oftentimes, the BAS alone has the answers to solving the issue at hand. If not, it can be utilized to narrow in on what needs to be looked at prior to sending a physical person to investigate. This course will teach students how to utilize the BAS in this manner.
