This course will provide prescriptive best practices for maintaining good operations, and an overview of the re-tuning process using building automation system (BAS) trend data. Attendees will learn how to look for and optimize the control strategy for many of the common energy saving opportunities such as occupancy scheduling, temperature, and static pressure control, and economizer function.
This course is ideal for onsite O&M staff responsible for day-to-day building operation; O&M staff management looking to integrate energy efficiency into their O&M procedures; and offsite contractors (retro-commissioning agents or control vendors) hired to improve a building's energy efficiency.
Basic understanding of commercial building systems (e.g. air handling units, VAV boxes, boilers, chillers) and familiarity with basic functions of building automation systems.

Discharge-Air Temperature Control
Discharge- Air Static Pressure Control
Air-Handling Unit Heating and Cooling
Air- Handling Unit Outside/Fresh Air makeup
Air-Handling Unit Economizer Operation
Central Plant Optimization
Be able to list five low/no-cost prescriptive O&M measures that may apply to your building
Be able to describe the basics of the re-tuning process, and some of the benefits
List at least three examples of poor operations that can be found through the re-tuning process
