It resets the AHU static pressure setpoint based on /// a "critical zone". VAV terminal units' maximum air valve position /// is determined, which is the basis for calculating an AHU static pressure /// setpoint. The AHU static pressure setpoint is adjusted to satisfy /// the critical zone, which inherently satisfies all other zones. // Fan horsepower is minimized and comfort in all spaces is maintained. // For background information about this routine, see SYS-EB-2. // This cpl object, the AHU object and all (or the majority of) the VAV // objects should reside in the same BCU. (Do not put this cpl object in // one BCU if the VAV boxes and AHU reside in another BCU.) /// Routine Execution: This program is executed every 1 minute. // Note: this routine executes every minute but the reset calculation is // done only at a user defined interval (usually much less frequently). /// Routine Text File: VAV_CZR3.CPL // ***** Define Variables ***** // In this section, the programmer defines the variables used throughout // this routine. The only variables that require editing are in the "User // Edited Variables" section. No other changes are required. Defint On = 1, // define enumeration Up = 1, // define enumeration Normal = 0, // define enumeration Occupy = 0, // define enumeration for VAV control mode i, // index used in the For-Next loop ahu_status, // status feedback from AHU ahu_timer, // number of minutes since the ahu started // ***** begin User Edited Variables ***** startup_delay = 30, // number of minutes after the ahu starts before // allowing the reset to occur reset_interval = 15, // number of minutes between reset calculations // Reset Interval will depend on actual system dynamics. // Tuning the reset interval should be done with // the system operating. boxes = 18 // number of vav boxes included in the calculation // ***** end User Edited Variables ***** // No changes are required beyond this point. // ***** ahu timer ***** // In this section a counter keeps the number of minutes the ahu // status shows the unit has been On. The counter is stored in // Local.{Saved Value}[16]. If the ahu status is Off the counter is // reset to 0 and the setpoint is reset to its user defined initial // value. The routine also stops if the ahu status is Off; there is // no reason to run the rest of the routine with the ahu Off. This // counter is used to verify the ahu has been On a user defined // number of minutes before allowing the static pressure to be // adjusted. ahu_timer = Local.{Saved Value}[16] If (ahu_status = On) Then ahu_timer = ahu_timer + 1 Else Local.{Saved Value}[16] = 0 If (setpoint.{Present Value} <> initial_staticsp) Then CONTROL(setpoint,{Present Value},initial_staticsp,16,Set) End If Stop End If Local.{Saved Value}[16] = ahu_timer // ***** vav box data ***** // In this section the air valve position is read from each vav box that // is communicating with the bcu and has a valid air flow reading. A // failed flow results in air valve position based control. This strategy // requires "pressure independent" flow control. The vav UCMs must be // in occupied mode and communicating with the bcu to properly read // values and perform calculations. This for-next loop finds the position // of the most open VAV box air valve. The routine will only find the // most open box after the ahu has gone through its user defined startup // delay. It only performs the rest of the routine every user interval, not // every minute. // No changes are required in this section. If (Local.{Saved Value}[1] >= reset_interval) and (ahu_timer > startup_delay) Then Local.{Saved Value}[1] = 0 Local.{Saved Value}[2] = 0 For i = 1 To boxes Step 1 If (VAV[i].{Communication State} = Up) and (VAV[i].{Diag: Flow Sensor Fail} = Normal) and (VAV[i].{Control Mode} = Occupy) Then If (VAV[i].{Air Valve Position} > maxpos) Then maxpos = VAV[i].{Air Valve Position} Local.{Saved Value}[2] = VAV[i].{Communication Address} End If End If Next Else Local.{Saved Value}[1] = Local.{Saved Value}[1] + 1 Stop End If Local.{Saved Value}[3] = maxpos // ***** adjust setpoint ***** // If the maximum air valve position is greater than the high limit the static // pressure setpoint is increased. If it is less than the low limit the setpoint // is decreased. The setpoint is adjusted only if the air handling unit is On and // the maximum air valve position is nonzero. It will be zero if all boxes // are not communicating or if all the flow sensors have failed. It will also // be zero if all boxes are unoccupied, (with unocc min allowed to go to zero). // The setpoint will be set to the user defined initial setpoint if the adjustment // calculation is not done. After the setpoint is calculated, it is verified that // it does not exceed its minimum or maximum. // No changes are required in this section. staticsp = setpoint.{Present Value} If (maxpos <> 0.0) Then If (maxpos > high_limit) Then staticsp = (staticsp + increment) End If If (maxpos < low_limit) Then staticsp = (staticsp - increment) End If Else staticsp = initial_staticsp End If staticsp = Min (staticsp, max_staticsp) staticsp = Max (staticsp, min_staticsp) // ***** control AOP ***** // Control the analog output to the calculated static pressure // setpoint only if it has changed. // No changes are required in this section. If (setpoint.{Present Value} <> staticsp) Then CONTROL(setpoint,{Present Value},staticsp,16,Set) End If End // end of routine The Trane Way (Tracer Summit v15 and later) Typical Way Repeatable - performance from building to building and job to job
