Pacific Energy Center EBCx Project Review Workshop
Graduates of the Existing Building Commissioning Workshop are invited to attend an informal quarterly workshop where attendees share the projects and ideas with each other and along with mentoring by EBCx Workshop instructors. The files below are the materials that are shared during these sessions, including resources presented by the instructors.
Since I just started the website, I have not posted the files from sessions prior to October of 2017. But if you are looking for something from a previous session, let me know and I will see if I still have it. Eventually, I will get it all up here.
Note that I generally put a Read Me file in with the other files to explain what each of them is unless it is fairly obvious.
In addition to the information in the zip file to the left, when we were discussing the economizer test and the impact
stratification can have on mixed air temperature measurement, I mentioned a number of other resources:
- The blog post Economizers–The Physics of a Mixed Air Plenum is where I derive the relationship we were using if you are curious about where it comes from.
- The blog post Retrocommissioning Findings: Economizer Mixed Air Plenum Stratification–Overview is a case study of the LeConte AHU economizer that I wrote right after the class we did were we measured the data.'
- The spreadsheet tool I was using that has the various mixed air calculation formulas built into it is on the the Mixed Air Calculations page of the web site.
- I recently added an Economizer Stratification page to the Videos section of the web site that has some additional field data and examples of stratification, including an animation Jay Tulley did from a carpet plot spreadsheet I created where you can watch how the temperature patterns change in an economizer in Monterey as the system goes through a day of operation.
