Presenter: Julian de Bullet

Fundamentals of centrifugal chillers and standards that apply to chilled water equipment. Discussion will include basic refrigeration cycle, chiller components, compressor operating details and capacity control methods.

Presenter: Brian Meneghan

Discussion of fan types and how they are expected to perform in various system applications. Understanding the effect of applying VFDs to the system and review fan curves to optimize fan selection.

Presenter: Bob Feduik

Requirements of ASHRAE 90.1 2010 in the areas of building envelope, lighting, power and equipment ­efficiencies. Topics such as economizer, reheat requirements, fan design limitation calculation and heat recovery requirements are presented.

Presenter: Julian de Bullet

Discussion of basic water-cooled chiller plant designs including the and comparison of the economics against an all-air system. Each component of a chiller plant design will be discussed along with an overall plant control strategy.

Presenter: Tom Kelly

This presentation will provide guidelines on how to comply with the ASHRAE 55 Standard and the methods used in a LEED® analysis.

Presenter: Brian Monk

ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1 “Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality” endeavors to achieve the necessary balance between IAQ and energy consumption by specifying minimum ventilation rates and IAQ that will be acceptable to human occupants. This seminar addresses the three components of the standard, source control, filtration and dilution. The various types of filtration and how they can help compensate for OA quality and how filtration can be used to improve system efficiency are also covered.

 

Presenter: Bob Feduik

Address how ASHRAE Standard 189.1 and LEED® will coexist in the industry. Review where requirements are the same and where they are different and understand how these two important standards will interact.

 

 

Presenter: Julian de Bullet

This seminar reviews the pros and cons of single chiller, parallel, series and series counter-ow chiller plant designs. Compare various chilled water supply temperatures and return chilled water options and their impact on energy use.

 

Presenter:  Tom Kelly

This presentation covers the USGBC LEED Version 4 release which must be used for new projects after October 31, 2016. The program covers the broad scope of changes and concentrates on some of the prerequisite and credit changes that have the most impact on mechanical systems. 

Presenter: Julian de Bullet

This seminar will address the choices of refrigerants used in chillers and the scope of the new regulations and codes that impact refrigerant choices now and in the future.

Presenter: Julian de Bullet

This seminar discusses the design and benefits of variable flow chiller plants. Design considerations and energy impacts of the various options are covered.  

Presenter: Julian de Bullet

In this seminar we discuss how weather impacts chiller performance and how a system can be designed to optimize plants for cold condenser water operation. We also review how chiller construction can be used to leverage cold condenser water-associated energy savings.

Presenter:  Julian de Bullet

This seminar address causes of Low Delta T Syndrome, which causes additional chiller and pump energy to be consumed in order to maintain design load. Several design and operational techniques are examined to minimize Low Delta T Syndrome in chilled water plants.

Presenter:  Tom Kelly

International Energy Conservation Code 2015 has been adopted in 11 states in the USA as of December 2016. The IECC-2015 code  has a number of new requirements which impacts the application of HVAC equipment and method of compliance with the spec. This seminar is the first of 3 on this topic. This seminar provides an overview of the code and examines the new requirements and available methods of compliance. The other 2 seminars look at specific requirements on DX and CW systems.

Presenter: Brian Meneghan

ASHRAE Standard 90.1 2013 requires eliminating  mechanical cooling at ambient conditions  below 50F DB/45F WB. This seminar describes how to incorporate an integrated waterside economizer into a chilled water system and demonstrate using  modeling tools for proper application of the economizer and optimization of the chiller plant.

Presenter: Julian de Bullet

This seminar addresses how utility demand structure is being influenced by sustainability issues including through LEED V4 Credits. Topics covered include how demand charges and demand programs are responding to these concerns and some of the solutions being used.

Presenter: Mike Thompson

This seminar defines the categories of 100% OA equipment used in commercial applications. It covers the three outside design conditions as defined by ASHRAE and how they affect equipment selection. In addition the presentation covers control sequences and application requirements.

Presenter: Bob Feduik

International Energy Conservation Code 2015 has been adopted in 12 states in the USA as of March 2017. The IECC-2015 code  has a number of new requirements which impacts the application of HVAC equipment and method of compliance with the spec. This seminar is the one of 3 on this topic. This seminar provides a detailed look at how the code impacts chilled water systems describing the new requirements and available methods of compliance. 

Presenter: Gus Rolotti

This seminar will explore the refrigerants available today and look at the current regulations that govern them. A review of the Montreal Protocol, Kyoto Protocol, Kigali Agreement and SNAP will be examined for regulation and phase out impact.  New refrigerant options will be compared for application, safety and ability to retrofit into existing equipment. Timing of how new refrigerants might be included in future building codes will be analyzed.

Presenter: Jim O'donnell

This seminar will focus on using high tier VAV rooftops on small (20K – 40K sqft) code compliant DOE office buildings.  IECC 2015 will be used to insure this design meets code requirements. A comparison of other popular systems will be performed and results presented and  examined.
