Building Automation Systems

Fundamentals of an Automatic Centralized Control System

BAS-1
BAS-2
BAS-3
BAS-4
DESCRIPTION

This 30-hour course is designed to build on the student’s knowledge they learned in their Basic Motor Control course. This course will introduce the students to the fundamentals of an automatic centralized control of a building's heating, ventilation and air conditioning, lighting and other systems through a building automation system (BAS). This course will cover reading and interpreting shop drawings and applying that knowledge to wiring a simulated air handling system in the shop.

In the shop, students will wire temperature, humidity and pressure sensors, as well as heating, chilled water control valves and dampers. The class will wire a variable air volume system, variable frequency drives and a communication network that will form a link between all the controllers via BACnet protocol. Once the projects are wired, the class will be involved with troubleshooting the wiring through a computer-based program. The control devices will then be commissioned by the students verifying that the wiring, programming and graphics meet the requirements of the provided shop drawings.

As well as the hands-on wiring of a simulated building automation system, the students will have an opportunity to tour a facility with a fully operational system where the students can experience the different systems integrated together and controlled through a centralized system.
