Why Choose this Training Course?

The purpose of a Heating, Ventilating, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) system is to provide and maintain a comfortable environment within a building for the occupants or a suitable environment for the process being conducted. The control system must be designed, set up, and operated to recognize changes and to maintain the space temperature at the desired value. With the rapid increase in installations of direct digital control (DDC) systems, it became necessary to understand the basics coverage of DDC systems.

This PetroKnowledge training course includes necessary procedures in operation and maintenance of DDC systems, particularly in the initial checkout and operator training course on newly installed systems. Those procedures are also applicable to the re-commissioning of existing DDC systems and recurrent training course of DDC system operators and maintenance technicians. The PetroKnowledge training course covers the HVAC control system's functions and the interactions between the control system and the components of the HVAC systems. Also, the troubleshooting of the DDC system will be discussed in this course.

This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight: 

  • Classifications and components of HVAC systems
  • Functions of HVAC control systems
  • Types of HVAC control systems
  • DDC systems architecture, operation, and maintenance
  • Troubleshooting of DDC system
