Post-Retrocommissioning HVAC Operations Monitoring Using Enterprise-Wide energy Management System
MetadataShow full item record
Since 2004, the County of Los Angeles have retrocommissioned over 4 million square feet and additional RCx work is underway. The scope of the HVAC retrocommissioning (RCs) involved systematic investigation of mechanical, electrical and controls components/systems to diagnose and resolve root causes of operational deficiencies. During the implementation phase, new energy efficiency measures were installed, sequence of operations were optimized and functionally tested. System-level benchmark models for HVAC systems were developed based on optimized runs of eQUEST energy models and parametrically integrated into the County owned web-based Enterprise Energy Management Information Systems (EEMIS) with Itron/Silicon Energy EEM Suite backbone for the purpose of monitoring the operations of the HVAC systems. The paper and presentation describes the HVAC RCx process to optimize operations, cost and savings associated with this project and key operational changes to sustain optimized operations without sacrificing tenant comfort.
