Specific Course Objectives

 Verify system airflow using multiple methods

 Approach a commercial VAV system and know whether it is working as intended.

 Understand the sequence of operation utilizing building plans.

 Understand forward curve fans, airfoil fans, and direct drive plenum fans.

 Know how to set up and verify proper system air flow with each fan type.

 Know the capabilities and the limitations of the building control system from a service technician standpoint.

 Use Rover service tool to analyze the air delivery system.

 Know the differences between Single Zone, Bypass and Shutoff VAV systems and where each is applied.

Lab Safety

Student participation in any hands-on portion of this course will include ladder safety and use of proper fall protection. It is expected the student will adhere to all

other safety requirements as they arise.

Target Audience

The target audience for this course includes Trane service technicians, controls technicians, service contractors, maintenance technicians, Existing Building Systems (EBS) personnel and others involved with system commissioning or with ensuring that an HVAC system is operating correctly and efficiently. Though geared for service technicians, anyone involved with ensuring that a system is set up to work as efficiently as possible will benefit from the class. The course includes systems used in all geographic regions. The curriculum is designed for "seasoned" or advanced technicians whose responsibility is to interpret and commission new buildings with engineered energy conservation as the top priority.

Prerequisites

Participants attending this course must have strong HVAC skills or an under-standing of engineered building systems and understand the importance of compliance with today’s energy efficiency requirements. Attendees should have an interest in promoting energy

conservation with the customer as well as within their organization with regard to proper (or improper) system setup and operation.

Course Description

This course covers the operation and setup of a commercial VAV system from the standpoint of the service technician. Shutoff VAV, Bypass VAV, and Single Zone VAV will be discussed in the class, although Shutoff VAV (traditional VAV) will be the primary focus. The concepts discussed will apply to new system startup as well as existing buildings. The course also discusses the different fan types used in commercial HVAC units.

The lab exercises are designed around several working VAV systems in our La Crosse training lab. This includes IntelliPak Commercial Self-Contained (CSC) and rooftop units (RTU) with various types of VariTrane VAV boxes. During the lab exercises, students will use the various tools needed to setup and commission (or re-commission) a VAV system. Also, the Rover service tool will be used for VAV box setup and for the purpose of verifying proper system operation from a service perspective. Attendees will learn to recognize important parameters within building plans in order to commission the building as the design engineer intended. The plans used will include the

equipment schedule, sequence of operation, airflow requirements, and ventilation.

Course Description

This course is intended to provide attendees with a “systems” approach to maintaining and diagnosing problems involving air distribution and water piping systems from a service perspective. It will show technicians and supervi-sors how Trane utilizes water flows to obtain efficient chiller operation. The course will also discuss water system conditions that can be detrimental to efficient operation and possibly damaging to system components. It also in-structs students in appropriate airside systems maintenance and troubleshooting procedures. Students will take flow measurements in a laboratory setting, using recommended tools and techniques to determine the chilled water sys-tems performance. Chilled water optimization with multiple chillers will also be discussed, along with chiller control strategies for variable water temperature / flows using Trane Adaptive Control™ technology.

CenTraVac® System Fundamentals

Course Description

This course will familiarize owner maintenance supervisors and technicians with Trane CVHE,F,G and the new CVHS oil-less centrifugal chiller operation and maintenance requirements. It will also help them understand chilled water systems and load-based chiller dynamics. The course will help technicians troubleshoot and will help chiller owners decide if work can be done in-house or not. Technicians can particularly benefit from coverage on diagnosing and maintaining machine design performance, and learn what can occur if operating outside of these parameters. Students will have the opportunity to observe the manufacturing and the assembly of key components in a factory tour. This course relies primarily on classroom lecture.
