This book offers the latest technology on HVAC Controls. While most industrial controls have benefited from advances in personal computer control and sensor technology, building controls have lagged behind. Only now are some of the techniques used in industrial automation showing up in HVAC. HVAC Controls, optimizing HVAC, boiler and pump control, heat pump and chiller optimization, environmental controls wireless control, computer control, and bulding automation. As energy costs continue to grow in relation to overall operating costs, the need for more refined HVAC control becomes more crucial. HVAC strategies such as optimizing start-up time and supply air temperature, and minimizing fan energy and reheating are not only possible, but are becoming necessary. This book examines the relationship between industrial automation techniques and evolving VHAC systems, and how emerging technologies can now be applied to HVAC systems.flow-corrected pressure control, 78 flow ratio controller, 49 FMS, 254 forced-air zoning system, 6 FORTRAN, 195, 203 free heating, 61 freezestat switch, 40 freezestat system, 42 fuel-air ratio controller, 84 Function Block Diagram, 206 G GHP, 17 gravity hot water systems, ... 7 humidistat, 3 I indirect free-cooling, 124- 125 integral action, 101 integral controller, 92 integral mode, 130 intermittent feed flow, anbsp;...
