Tracer SC™ Operation

Time: 7:30am-5:00pm

In the Tracer SC™ Operation course, students learn to operate and modify an installed Tracer SC™ system. This highly interactive course includes presentations and hands‐on workshops where students practice using the software applications integral to a Tracer SC™ building management system. At the end of this course students are able to:

• Monitor and control building mechanical systems
• Respond to alarm conditions
• Create custom alarms
• Generate reports and data logs
• Create custom time‐of‐day schedules
• Learn how time‐of‐day, area, and variable air system applications work together to control your air side systems.
• Respond to hot and cold calls
• Utilize contract documentation to identify control component locations. (Trane control drawings and mechanical prints)

2018 Air Conditioning Clinic

CEU Credits: 2.5

Time:
5:30pm-7:30pm

The Air Conditioning Clinic is a comprehensive battery of 12 classes designed to give an overview of the entire HVAC industry. Each class deals with a specific area of the many disciplines required to successfully design, install and service comfort providing equipment. The classes are divided as follows:

• Basic Refrigeration Cycle
• Reciprocating and Scroll Compressors
• Refrigerant System Piping
• Psychrometry
• The Cooling Load Estimate
• Variable Air Volume

This course is designed for the newly employed designer/engineer, the servicing technician, and the building operator trying to better understand their systems and also provides a good review for the more experienced student.

Upon completion of the course, the student will have a basic understanding of the various equipment and systems used in providing comfort cooling today, and be able to identify the various components. In addition, basic troubleshooting skills will be enhanced through a better understanding of the manner in which the components relate to each other in a system.

2018 Engineers Newsletter Live - Dates Coming Soon!

New York, New Jersey and Long Island: March TBD
Topic: Chilled-Water System Decisions

Many chilled-water system decisions are made during the course of the design process. Those design decisions and the specific application lead to other system decisions - such as bypass line sizing and length, pump location, use of pressure independent valves, buffer tank size, etc.  This ENL covers the reasons for many system decisions in short segments, a bit different than previous ENLs.  You will leave this program with practical guidance that should simplify future design of chilled water systems.

New York, New Jersey, Long Island: May TBD
Topic: Controls Technology Update

The marketplace demands open, standard communication protocols to deliver flexible, interoperable control systems for building owners.  Recent innovations in the industry have made these options more prevalent for building owners.  This ENL will review these various communication protocols (using both wired and wireless technologies), discuss where each best applies, and describe wayts to ensure the needs of the owner are indeed met.

New York, New Jersey, Long Island: OctoberTBD
Topic: Demystifying Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF)

This ENL builds onthe 2014 Applying Variable Refrigerant Flow with detailed discussions on several topics including when to use heat recovery instead of heat pump configurations, how to apply VRF with traditional ducted systems, system and sizing considerations for both hot and cold climates, ventilation delivery, and moreconsiderations.

New York, New Jersey, Long Island: NovemberTBD
Topic: ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and Energy Modeling

The demand for energy modeling has increased over the years due to the adoption of ASHRAE Standard 90.1 into green building standards and green building rating systems. Engineers have been using building simulation software to calculate building load, compare different HVAC systems and control options, perform life cycle cost analysis as well as demonstrate compliance. This ENL will discuss how to model a proposed building against the baseline buildings according to ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G Performance Rating Method. Common energy conservation measures will be implemented and potential energy savings discussed.
  Fee: FREE
