Commissioning, Testing & Balancing Procedure
For BMS System P-511B Project

1. Purpose
This procedure prescribes a uniform set of methods for conducting
commissioning verification checks and functional tests of HVAC DDC Systems
(BMS).

2. Scope
1. definitions and terminology
2. a general description of method(s) provided
3. required information and conditions for initiating a check or test
4. recommendations for applying general protocols specific applications
5. uniform method(s) including identification of test equipment and
measurement points for performing such checks or tests
6. identification of requirements for acceptance

3. Reference
1. Project Specifications.
2. NEEB.
3. Manufacturer test sheet.

4. Instruments
1. Multi meter including AC/DC.
2. Clamp meters.
3. Thermometer.
4. Humidity meter.
5. Flow hood.
6. Flow-meter.

5. Preliminary Checks
The following general check list must be done before starting the test:

1. Proper pneumatic pressures and conditions


2. Proper electric voltage and amperages, and all circuits are free from
grounds or faults.
3. Integrity/safety of all electrical [and pneumatic] connections
4. Proper interface with fire and life safety systems
5. Identification of all necessary control settings determined from balancing
procedures including:
Optimum VAV duct pressure set points
VAV fan VFD minimum and maximum speed settings
VAV Return fan volume tracking settings
Minimum outside air damper settings for air handling units.

VAV box minimum and maximum volume settings.


Optimum differential pressure set points for variable speed
pumping.
Variable volume pumps VFD minimum and maximum speed
settings.
Verification of air-handler maximum design flow.
6. Testing, calibration, and setting of all digital and analog sensing and
actuating devices.
7. Checking and setting zero and span adjustments for all actuating devices.
8. Checking of each digital control point.
9. Programming and testing of all sequences of operation, schedules and set
points.
10. Proper tuning of all control loops.

6. Testing Procedure
6.1 Verification checks:
Those full range of physical inspections and checks that are conducted to
verify that specific components, equipment, systems, and interfaces between
systems conform to a given criteria. These checks typically verify proper
installation, start-up and initial contractor checkout, prior to equipment being
functionally tested.
Documentation checks: verify specifications, submittals, TAB report, pre-
commissioning report, as-built drawings, and training implementation.
Hardware/software installation checks: verify nameplate data, verify
installed characteristics, and verify system is operational.
Software implementation checks: verify AI, AO, DI/DO I/O points, verify
sensor calibrations; demonstrate offline setpoints, control sequence logic,
graphics, alarm codes and standard reports.

6.2 functional tests:


Those full range of tests that are conducted to verify that specific
components, equipment, systems, and interfaces between systems conform to a
given criteria. These tests are typically used to verify that a sequence of operation
is correctly implemented or that a design intent criterion has been met. They
typically are done after equipment is placed in full operation. Performance tests,
which include efficiency, capacity, load, monitoring and M&V or savings protocols,
are considered a subset of functional tests.
Software functionality tests.
Operational trend tests: observed range of control; can be used to verify
many control sequences.
Control sequence tests. Possible tests include: start/stop (on/off);
schedule (scheduled start/stop, optimum start/stop [includes warm-up and

cool-down], unoccupied setback [includes night purge], sweep); lead/lag


(includes runtime and equipment failure); staging; reset (including setpoint
change, control by flow and speed control); safeties; economizer; life
safety interface; power failure.

6.2 Networks (LAN/WAN):


The media that connects multiple intelligent devices. LAN (local area
network) implies a network over small geographic area. A building may have two
LANs, one for the building computer network and one for the DDC system. WAN
(wide area network) implies data transfer through a router. The most basic task of
the network is to connect the DDC controllers so that information can be shared
between them.

6.3 user interface devices:


Operator workstation (desktop computer with necessary software to
provide full access and operational capabilities to the entire DDC system); remote
workstation, also known as a portable terminal (laptop computer with necessary
software to provide full access and operational capabilities to the entire DDC
system from a remote location); mobile terminal station, also known as a hand-
held terminal (typically supplied and programmed by the vendor for specific set-up
tasks); smart stats (thermostats that allow a multiple hierarchy of user entered
offsets and adjustments); web browser (an internet based device with limited
software that provides some level of access and operational capabilities).
