DDC Panel Functional Test Report


CVAHU with Zone Dampers

GENERAL:
 All control loop parameters, schedules, setpoints, ranges, alarm conditioning statements, and messages will be
readily adjustable at the BAS operator's terminal.
 All sequences may be overridden manually or by a control sequence of higher authority, such as high static
alarm.
 The DDC panel user addresses are list after each section of the sequence.

AIR HANDLING UNIT AHU-8

START/STOP CONTROL: HAND MODE


Switch the Motor Control Panel (MCP) to the ‘Hand’ position. Refer to the plant control wiring diagram and test the
hard-wired controls and display, if applicable.

START/STOP CONTROL: AUTO MODE


The fan system has a software OFF/ON/AUTO point will allow the operator to start or stop the supply fan.
OFF – Supply fan will be off 24hrs
ON - Supply fan will run 24hrs
AUTO – Supply fan will start and stop by the DDC program.

Exhaust Fan EF-27 is software interlocked with AHU-8.

When the AHU is off the outside air and exhaust air dampers will be closed. Return air damper will be open. The
chilled water and hot water control valves will be closed.

COLD DECK CONTROL:


(Control Strategy - ColdDeck)

Cooling will be enabled when the fan status is ON. A PID-loop will modulate the CHW valve to maintain the cold deck
temperature at setpoint. The setpoint will be reset by the outside air temperature per the following schedule:
OSA Temp Cold Deck Setpoint
70 F 55 F
60 F 65 F

temperature at setpoint.

(AH8_EconomizerMode, AH8_MaDmpr, AH8_MaTemp, AH8_MaTempSetpt)

Performed by: Date: Witness by: Date:

ECONOMIZER DAMPER CONTROL:

If OA temp is less than RA temp the economizer will be enabled and the mixed air dampers will modulate per the
mixed air temperature control. If OSA temp is 1 deg greater than RA temp, the economizer will be disabled and the
mixed air dampers will be positioned to minimum OSA and 100% RA. On fan startup, the dampers will be held at O%
OSA position for 60 seconds to allow the RA temp sensor to register the correct data.

(AH8_EconomizerMode, AH8_OaTemp, AH8_RaTemp, AH8_MinOsaDmpPos)

Endurance Test Procedures

The endurance test is to demonstrate the overall reliability of the BMS control system. The
endurance test cannot begin until the BMS and PVT tests are complete.

1) All failures and faults found during the BMS and PVT tests must be documented before
the endurance test. All failures and faults should be corrected before the endurance. If,
due to logistical or supply reasons, a fault can not be repaired in a timely manner, the
fault must be exempt from the endurance test.

2) The endurance will began when the Project Manager (or comparable position) gives
written notice that the BMS and PVT tests are satisfactorily completed.

3) The 1st phase of the endurance test shall be conducted 24 hours per day, 7 days per
week for XX consecutive calendar days. The Contractor shall make no repairs during the
1st phase test unless authorized by the Project Manager in writing.

4) The 2nd phase of the endurance test shall conclude with a written report of operation and
found failures in the 1st phase test. If failures were to occur during the 1st phase test, the
report shall explain the nature of each failure (e.g., incomplete software logic), the
corrective action taken (e.g., software updated), results of the tests performed and
recommend when testing can resume.

5) Based upon the merit of the 2nd phase report the Project Manager may elect to totally or
partially rerun the 1st phase test and elect to require a follow-up 2nd phase report.
