Controls 101...or How to "Sequence" Yourself

James Waltz, P.E., C.E.M., F.A.C.F.E.
Energy Resource Associates, Inc.

A pioneer in the field of energy management, founding member of the AEE, andmuch-experienced design/build contractor and control system builder/commissioner, Mr. Waltz had audited some 50,000,000 square feet of buildings and has built, installed, energized, programmed and commissioned innumerous digital control systems, thereby radically transforming the operation of countless buildings throughout his career.

In this presentation he will address the fundamentals of controls, and articulate the importance of understanding system mechanical-, thermo- and hydro-dynamics as opposed to simply understanding the functioning of the control system itself.In such cases, the sequence of control is far more critical than how it is achieved by the control system hardware and software.In his own words, “control systems are merely tinker toys, how they are deployed is the key issue”.
