System Controls for Applying ASHRAE® Guideline 36: A Trane ENL Program Preview

In this Engineers Newsletter Live (ENL) Program, we will discuss how ASHRAE® Guideline 36 can be applied to maximize energy efficiency and performance and how it can enable real-time fault detection and diagnostics.

Maximizing energy efficiency and performance through controls

ASHRAE® Guideline 36 offers standardized sequences of operation for HVAC systems, aiming to optimize energy efficiency and performance, provide control stability, and facilitate real-time fault detection and diagnostics. In our latest Trane® Engineers Newsletter LIVE (ENL) program, we focus on updates to this guideline, concentrating on hydronic and airside systems, and share methods to deliver control systems using the guidance provided.

What you’ll learn from this ENL

This ENL features Trane Applied and Sourced Solutions Manager Tony Bruno and Trane Applications Engineers Sarah Hilden and Scott Delo. The key take-aways include:

  • Understand what is, and what is NOT, included in Guideline 36
  • Overview select control sequences
  • Identify the new addition of hydronic plant sequences
  • Understand how to validate proper implementation of the recommended sequences
  • Compare methods for specifying Guideline 36 sequences

Viewing this ENL

A recording of this program is now available to view on-demand from the Trane Education Center.

More about Trane Engineers Newsletter LIVE (ENL) programs

Trane ENL is a series of video programs focused on the design and control of HVAC systems, industry issues (sustainability, decarbonization, indoor air quality, acoustics, etc.), or codes and standards. The content is technical and educational, but non-commercial. The target audience is HVAC system design engineers; however, some programs may also be of interest to other professionals in the industry.

Previous programs are available to view on-demand, and free of charge, in the Trane Education Center. In many states, ENL programs meet the requirements for earning Professional Development Hours (PDHs) to help meet the continuing education requirements of your professional engineer license or other certification.
