HVAC Fault Detection Insights from Schneider Electric

Schneider Electric

Consulting & Specifying Engineer (CSE) magazine is conducting a training webinar on Thursday, April 25th with a topic of “What the benefits of HVAC fault detection, plus how to specify it.”

The description for the webinar is:

Within commercial buildings, it is estimated that poorly maintained, degraded or improperly controlled equipment wastes an estimated 15% to 30% of the energy used and impacts operational costs and equipment life span. Smart technology enables the next generation of proactive and preventive maintenance through analytic tools such as heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) fault detection and diagnostics (FDD).

Not limited to energy savings, FDD technologies can also prevent energy performance degradation over time, support various commissioning processes, improve operational efficiencies and facilitate predictive maintenance, which contributes to increased equipment life, improved reliability and lower labor cost.

Analytics are specific findings of operational root-cause issues presented to the user for clear understanding. Analytics provide results that show how building systems really operate versus how they were supposed to be operating when modeled in design. The data may then be used for ongoing commissioning, which allows the mechanical engineer or commissioning professional to obtain data and react quickly.

HVAC FDD is an integral part of any building design, and the eventual measurement and verification of its systems. With smart controls and an open architecture, FDD can be deployed for both new and existing building systems.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify major market trends driving building customers’ need for performance-based analytic solutions.
  • Correctly define the concept of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) fault detection and diagnostics (FDD).
  • Gain the ability to name the outcomes, solutions and benefits of HVAC FDD.
  • Identify the functionality, reporting and results available for mechanical engineers or commissioning providers to offer building clients.
  • Obtain the ability to describe the key components needed to specify FDD.

Presenters are Shannon Kell – Schneider Electric, Director, Offer Management – Services for Digital Buildings, and Jeremiah Cope – Schneider Electric, Consultant Solution Architect. Both are with Schneider Electric HVAC.

Given that the audience is a distributor’s, or contractor’s, customer (or product influencer, sitting in on the session could give you valuable insights into topics that could be important to them … and sales opportunities for you.
