Energy Management and Controls includes a number of key concepts and discussions that teach fundamental maintenance and energy management control aspects that will enable you to run your building operations in a cost-efficient manner. You will develop an understanding of the operation of heating, cooling, humidification, and dehumidification control applications, and learn about variable air volume design and building pressurization control devices. You will also develop the skills and knowledge to perform a cost-benefit analysis of HVAC, electric, and lighting systems and to create an energy management program for your facility.

Upon successful completion of this course, learners will be able to:

  • Apply an energy management plan to your building’s systems
  • Evaluate new systems with a concentration on retrofitting
  • Describe traditional and alternative energy systems and their integration with other building systems
  • Discuss how to use programmable logic controllers and other resources to optimize your system
  • Develop, implement, and manage an innovative preventive maintenance program

Key topic areas:

control system basics  auxiliary and electronic controls and their application to heating, cooling, humidifying, and volume control  computerized automatic control systems  factors determining energy consumption in HVAC, electronic, and lighting systems  preventive maintenance measures in energy management  energy management control system applications

Applies to:
SMC and BEC certificates
SMA® and SMT® designations
