Meeting Details:

ASHRAE Guideline 36P: High-Performance Sequences of Operation (1.0 PDHs)

James Coogan, Sr. Principal Engineer, Siemens Building Technologies


The controls community in ASHRAE aims to improve HVAC operation and building automation by developing a new guideline for specifying the sequence of operation. Goals include:

  • Higher quality in installed systems through standardization
  • Higher energy efficiency through advanced sequence design 
  • Better building operation through fault detection and smart alarm strategies

The talk recounts the background and history of the project. It presents the development status and likely course to adoption and maintenance. Most importantly, it explains the content of the current draft, enabling system specifiers to pick up selected aspects and put them to work now.
