ST 6354 – PPCL Programming II

Overview: Explore multiple high-level strategies designed to optimize building performance and reduce energy costs.

Participants: Advanced users who need skills to create or modify programs using advanced program control strategies for energy efficiency.


You Will Learn To:

Equipment Ramping

• Change programs to minimize overshoot during startup.

Equipment Rotation

• Modify programs to automatically rotate equipment based on a schedule or run time.

Equipment Staging

• Alter programs to ensure the proper number of devices are operating at any given time.

Cascading Loops

• Use the output of a loop statement to modify the set-point in another loop.

Loop Tuning

• Adjust loop gains to ensure efficient equipment performance.

Adaptive Control

• Modify an existing program to use the Adaptive Loop Control.
• Enthalpy Optimization 
• Add programming code to determine the optimum position of the outside air dampers based on a given set of conditions.

Peak Demand Limiting (PDL)

• Change programs to prevent exceeding peak energy consumption limits by properly cycling equipment.

Start/Stop Time Optimization (SSTO)

• Build an optimized zone.

VAV Control
