Yale University Sterling Chemistry Lab Renovation: Incorporating Effective HVAC Control Strategies and Integrating User Level Control

Anthony Kosior, Yale University

Speaker declined to publish abstract.

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding the magnitude of time, resources and detail necessary to carefully develop, implement and test HVAC operating control strategies. Learn what it takes to produce a full set of accurate written operating sequences that match system level programming.
  • Identify system design details and how they translate to written control strategies for critical HVAC systems that allow for system flexibility and high levels of energy efficiency. Learn how details within programming can drive system operation and lead to efficient and/or inefficient operation.
  • Integration of user level control as a key control strategy in reducing airflow in chemistry labs. Learn how to develop design strategies that adopts program functionality into HVAC controls to allow end user the ability to utilize systems only when needed.
  • Evaluate & understand key lessons learned that were incorporated into the project & takeaways for future projects. These lessons will target design strategies, documentation & process used to test & verify proper operation as well as producing better project documentation to reduce changes during construction & post construction operating issues.
