Our Building Automation Training course is designed to assist organizations to identify opportunities for retrofitting existing building control systems and power and communication networks or to design BAS systems into new building designs.
Building automation is the automatic centralized control of a building's HVAC, lighting and communications systems (such as fire alarm and life safety systems and building security systems, through a Building Management System (BMS) or Building Automation System (BAS). The objectives of building automation are improved comfort, energy management, efficient operation of building systems, and a reduction in water consumption and waste water. A robust BAS design can include the integration with renewable energy and energy storage systems.
This real-world-based course will give you a broad introductory understanding of the specific issues involved with Building Automation Systems (BAS). You will explore the processes that occur in the building automation industry including digital controls, sensing and measurement, actuation, analog output devices, and relays. Computer interfaces are also discussed including web interfaces. The overall survey of the world of BAS includes: Future of BAS; Digital Direct Control (DDC) Basics; Field Devices; Networking and BAS network protocols, Human Machine Interface (HMI); BAS Design and Specification; Energy Conservation Control Strategies; and System Maintenance.
This course will enable you to identify and describe the major components in a BAS along with the basic mechanical components and controls in an HVAC control system. You will be able to describe and explain the basic functions of DDC systems and HMI basics, reference codes and standards applicable to BAS, and justify control components for project work. This course will help you explain BAS in non-ATC systems (lighting, fire, security, etc.), the process of implementing BAS, and Energy Conservation Control Strategies. You will also learn where to look for additional resources.
Computer interfaces are discussed including web interfaces. Your survey of the world of BAS includes: Future of BAS, Digital Direct Control (DDC) Basics, Field Devices, the Human Machine Interface (HMI), BAS Design and Specification, Energy Conservation Control Strategies, and System Maintenance.
