STANDARDIZATION
A.
6.3
All control loops will be standardized throughout the programming code.
PROGRAMMING GUIDELINES
A.
All adjustable setpoints shall be developed as software points stored at memory locations so
that setpoints can be changed by recommanding the data stored at the memory location rather
than by entering the program and changing parameters and lines in program code.
B.
Where reset schedules are specified or required the schedules shall be set up so that the
operator enters the following points into memory locations.
1.
Two points for the independent variable on the reset schedule.
2.
Two points for the dependent variable on the reset schedule.
The computer system shall then use these values as input parameters to the appropriate
program or programs and calculate the reset schedule based on these values.
C.
Where several analog outputs are to be controlled in sequence by one control loop, software
shall be arranged so that the sequence is guaranteed regardless of the spring range of the
actuators and to prevent simultaneous heating and cooling.
D.
Programs controlling several pieces of equipment as one system shall reside in one control unit.
Where programs use data points that reside in other control units the programs shall employ
logic (either in software, firmware, hardware, or a combination of all three) to detect loss of
communications with the remote control units containing the required data. When such a failure
is detected, the program logic shall revert to a safe operating mode that will allow the controlled
systems to remain in operation until normal system communication resumes. A pilot light on the
control unit shall be illuminated when such a failure mode exists. In addition, an alarm shall be
sent to the HOST computers (alarm level 4). The software shall track this type of alarm and
report if communication failure is higher than expected (this condition shall generate an alarm
level 3, with descriptive text, at the HOST computer). All safe operating modes shall be
approved by the Engineer prior to implementation.
E.
Control sequences that use outdoor air conditions to trigger certain specific operating modes
shall use data generated by one outdoor air temperature sensor and one outdoor humidity
sensor. In other words, the data from one pair of sensors shall be shared by the entire
system.
F.
All safety circuits shall be hard wired circuits using standard snap acting electric or pneumatic
switches as required by the function, and shall be totally independent of the DDC system
controllers. This includes interlocks that return dampers and valves to some normal, fail-safe
position when the system they are associated with shuts down. It is the intent of this paragraph
that the systems have the capability to be operated manually complete with safeties and fail
safe interlocks even if the DDC system is off line.
G.
Provide hours of operation accumulation and lead/lag sequencing of equipment based on hours
of operation for all equipment with proof of operation inputs.
H.
Global point name changing:
1.
The system shall provide an easy means to allow the operator to change a point name
such that the point will automatically be referenced everywhere in the system by the new
name.

If a point name is removed from the database, any program code where the name
appears must show an appropriate error signal for undefined point when the program is
viewed, edited, or printed.
Synchronization of real-time clocks between all control panels shall be provided.
GENERAL SEQUENCE OF OPERATION GUIDELINES
A.
Control of all central fan systems, boilers, DX units, heaters, and pumping stations shall be
based on run requests, heating requests or cooling requests from zone controls.
B.
Reset of supply air temperature and hot water temperature shall be based on zone temperature
conditions via the zone’s percentage of heating or cooling load.
C.
Unless otherwise indicated, all control loops will use PID loops. The coefficient for the
derivative component is zero (0) unless otherwise indicated.
D.
All HVAC system controls shall be designed such that simultaneous heating and cooling,
reheating, and recooling are minimized. This applies as well to non-mechanical treatment of
mixed air (e.g. outside air, heat recovery, etc.) which must then be mechanically reheated or
recooled.
E.
Alarms: Except as directed otherwise by the Owner, all alarms will be registered at the building
operator’s terminal as well as at the Maintenance Building remote operator’s station. Alarms are
to be registered with a message explaining the nature of the alarm and which building/location
the alarm is in.
F.
Whenever a setpoint is referred to as “adjustable” in these standards, the setpoint is to be easily
and directly adjustable at the operator’s terminal and Maintenance Building remote operator’s
station, and is not to require any code modification. This may require assigning virtual points to
all adjustable setpoints. Frequently adjusted points, including space temperature setpoints, shall
be adjustable from the graphics screen (e.g., floor plan screen).
G.
There are many interlocks and limits within each control loop or algorithm that may not be
obvious or stated in this specification. The Control Contractor is responsible for identifying and
programming these interlocks and limits into the software. The CO 2 Demand Ventilation
Control algorithm is a good example of the complexity of the control loop with interlocks and
limits.
H.
The Control Contractor will replace any and all equipment (actuators, chillers, etc) that fail due
to programming errors. Such errors include, but are not limited too: moving actuators a couple
fractions of a degree every second or so in response to some infinitesimal change in a
measured variable or repeatedly turning equipment on/off within a short time period. The
Control Contractor will avoid these problems by incorporating time delays, dead bands, and
other programming techniques into the sequence of operation.
I.
Programmable time-of-day (start/stop) control shall be implemented for all HVAC equipment,
except for:
1.
equipment that is interlocked with other equipment under direct start/stop control (e.g.
exhaust fans interlocked with an air handling unit)
2.
equipment that must run continuously for reasons of safety
3.
as otherwise noted in these standards
J.
Auto-tuning algorithms will not be used to initially tune control loops.

Optimal Start:
a.
The intent of this sequence is that the air handling system be started early enough
that the average space temperature is at the target temperature setpoints of 70 F
for preheat and 73 F for precool, at the scheduled occupancy time.
b.
The optimal start sequence may start the air handling systems prior to occupancy
no more than the maximum start time limit setpoint. (3 hours)
c.
The optimal start sequence uses the average space temperature, area
characteristics and mechanical equipment capacity and outside air temperature to
calculate a lead-time in advance of scheduled occupancy time.
d.
The actual area response is analyzed and weighted adjustments are made to the
calculation.
e.
The optimal start sequence will determine the prestart mode, preheat or precool,
based upon the average space temperature and the occupied or unoccupied
mode, based upon the occupancy schedule.
f.
The optimal start sequence will not enter in to the precool mode unless the outside
air temperature is below 55 F.
g.
The optimal start sequence mode can be overridden for each individual air
handling system or globally for all air handling systems in the building.
Occupant Override:
a.
When key operated lockout switch is in ‘on’ position, override panel is activated
and air-handling units can be overridden.
b.
The systems override panel located in the custodian room has override push
buttons for AHU-1, 2, 3 and 4. When the push button is pushed, the respective airhandling unit is activated into the occupied mode for 60 minutes (adjustable with
software).
c.
Panel lights indicate fan status for all units. The fan status panel light is on solid
when fan is running. The fan status panel light blinks when fan is running due to
activation form the override panel.

The operator shall have the on-screen ability to override the CO 2 DVC and return
the system to normal occupancy operating mode. This override shall send a level
3 alarm and indicate the override on screen until the override is disabled.
BAS shall normally execute the thermal PID algorithms to maintain thermal comfort
settings as determined by space temperature sensor and control parameters.
BAS shall use available internal proportional, integral and derivative algorithms to
modulate the outside air dampers on the AHUs to maintain space CO 2 levels
under a pre-determined level for active CO 2 DCV.
In anticipation of a large crowd, a manual override can pre-ventilate the space.
The manual overridden shall execute a control routine to proportionally increment
outside air dampers open up to the minimum outside air design (determined by
maximum space occupancy), over a set time period (determined by the Engineer)
that complies with lag times permitted by ASHRAE 62-1989. Proportional opening
of the dampers over a period of time will also ensure adequate temperature control
within the space.
If the BAS’s economizer algorithms determine that the AHUs should have a
greater percent of outside air than determined by the CO 2 DCV algorithm, then the
economizer algorithms shall supersede CO 2 DCV algorithms and determine
outside air damper position. The CO 2 DCV purge algorithms shall, however,
supersede the economizer algorithms if CO 2 levels exceed 1,000 PPM.
Occupied Mode (low occupancy).
1)
During periods when occupancy loads are less than design occupancy
loads, the outside air flow requirements can be decreased below design flow
rates. A minimum rate, however, must be maintained in order to remove
CO 2 and other contaminants during low occupancy periods. Outside air
dampers will be opened to a minimum ventilation position as defined by
carbon dioxide control sequence permitted under ASHRAE Interpretation IC
62-1989-27 of ANSI/ASHRAE 62-1989. Outside air dampers shall be
positioned to achieve a desired damper setting of approximately 25% of the
original minimum outside air design (which is equal to 15 CFM per person
times the design occupant capacity).
2)
Minimum AHU outside air flow rate shall be as listed on plans.
3)
When space occupancy levels require more ventilation to ensure acceptable
CO 2 concentration levels, ventilation rates shall be adjusted as follows:
a)
Return air CO 2 level shall be maintained to assure maximum overall
space CO 2 levels equal to or less than 600 PPM (Parts Per Million),
adjustable, above background outside air CO 2 levels as indicated by
the outside air CO 2 sensor (or by operator input). This strategy
should achieve an upper control loop setting of approximately 1,000
PPM (the CO 2 level for a target ventilation of 15 CFM per person at
400 PPM nominal outside air CO 2 ) within the space. The BAS shall
override outside air damper control loop setting proportionally up to a
maximum damper setting equal to but no greater than the design
minimum outside air damper position. Economizer may override
outside air damper position if required for free cooling.
Cooling Mode Discharge Temperature Control: Mixed air dampers modulate to
maintain mixed air temperature equal to discharge air setpoint. A mechanical
cooling setpoint is sent to air handling unit controller, equal to discharge air
setpoint plus 2 F (adjustable). Cooling coil control valve is modulated.g.
Occupied Purge Mode (CO 2 levels above upper control setpoint).
1)
Upon sensing a rise in space CO 2 levels above 1000 PPM as indicated
from the CO 2 sensor, the CO 2 DCV algorithm shall override the thermal
comfort algorithms to reduce CO 2 levels in the space(s) by proportionally
modulating (up to 100 percent open if necessary) the outside air damper to
maintain space CO 2 level below 260 PPM above current outside air CO 2
reading, or approximately an upper control setpoint of 1000 PPM.

6.
When the CO 2 DCV algorithm is activated to purge the space, thermal
comfort shall be maintained to  3F (adjustable) of the space sensor’s
original temperature setpoint as a deadband. If CO 2 DCV purge exceeds
the thermal comfort deadband of  3F for more than 15 (fifteen) minutes,
then the BAS shall release the CO 2 DCV override and return control to
thermal comfort control. Changes made in the space temperature setpoint
during a purge sequence shall be ignored for the purposes of DCV control.
If the space CO 2 levels are not reduced to less than 150 PPM below the
upper control setpoint of approximately 1000 PPM within 15 minutes after
being overridden and the space temperature has stabilized, then the DDC
system shall continue the purge mode until such time as the space CO 2
levels has been reduced or the thermal comfort parameters are exceeded.
3)
If the CO 2 DCV control override successfully purges the space without
exceeding the thermal deadband comfort range setting of  3F and CO 2
levels are 150 PPM below the upper control setpoint, the DDC controller
shall return control to the thermal comfort algorithms and non-purge CO 2
DCV mode.
4)
The CO 2 DCV will be overridden by the unoccupied mode control algorithms
even if CO 2 levels are above 1000 PPM when the unoccupied period is
initiated.
