Where there are many plant items which carry out the same function but using different techniques, for example, water heating, the modular format of the Library allows a pick and mix selection of plant modules to be made to provide the required configuration of a complete system.

Each plant module is shown in the form of a schematic and is described in terms of its general function and how it is controlled. Specification clauses are included which the system designer can copy into a particular specification document. Italics are used in the specification clauses to indicate where options are available from which the user can select the one required.

Underlined text is used to indicate default values of setpoints and other parameters which the user should change for the particular specification. Total digital and analogue input and output points are given in a BMS points list for each plant item and a further table summarises the modes of plant operation for each of the controlled devices.

Finally, each strategy has a flow chart which presents the control strategy information in an easy to follow format as an aid to understanding the sequence of control events. The standardisation initiated by the Library of System Control Strategies will lead to easier system specification, configuration, commissioning and witnessing due to the better understanding of and familiarity with the control software provided.

Subsequent operational problems will also be easier to identify. This will provide more effective system design, installation, operation and maintenance and consequent productivity gains that such performance improvements bring about. Note: This document is also contained on the accompanying diskette. Every opportunity has been taken to incorporate the views of the sponsors and technical panel but final editorial control of this document rests with BSRIA.

The consulting engineer and other parties specifying control systems can use the library as an independent source of control solutions with a complete description of plant operation and control strategy. A standard specification clause for each individual control strategy can be quoted or referenced to form a detailed specification. It is intended that the Library of System Control Strategies will provide control manufacturers and system specialists with a detailed specification that they will become familiar with, allowing the control application software for the HVAC system to be designed, configured and tested in less time.

With the development of an in-house database of Building Management System BMS control solutions, implementing a control system for a specific application will take the form of interconnecting the required modules and assigning setpoint and other parameter values to suit the system. In addition for use for a BMS, the library is also appropriate for use, with suitable engineering, for stand-alone controls.

The standardisation initiated by the Library of System Control Strategies will lead to easier system commissioning and witnessing due to the better understanding of, and familiarity with, the control software provided.

Operational problems will be easier to identify by referring to the descriptions and control strategies within the Library. This will also make for more effective system operation and maintenance by engineers who may not have been involved in the plant design or installation. The provision of the Library does not, however, remove the onus from designers using the documents to ensure that an appropriate working solution is produced.

Using the Library The Library has been developed using a modular system allowing control strategies to be selected on a pick and mix basis according to the particular plant used. The major plant systems are sub-divided into a number of plant functions. For example, the plant function headings for heating systems are listed in Table I.

The plant functions are further sub-divided into plant modules, see example in Table I for water heating plant. General control strategies 2. Heating systems 3. Air handling systems 4. Pumping 5. Cooling systems Plant functions 2. The intention of the Library is that for each whole plant system such as an air handling unit or complete heating system, the user has a number of alternative plant functions from which appropriate plant modules are selected to meet the requirements for a particular specification.

The individual plant modules and their associated control strategies are therefore available as building blocks to develop the control strategy for a complete system. The Library describes a number of operating modes that a heating, cooling or ventilating plant could operate in at different times, as follows: low outside air temperature interlock for plant protection low return water temperature interlock for plant protection low zone air temperature in the conditioned zone for building fabric and contents protection plant shutdown off fan overrun air systems or pump overrun water systems boost heating optimum start heating optimum start cooling night cooling normal often corresponding to the occupied period fire.

Not all of the operating modes are applicable to all plant items. Further, the user of the Library may not wish to use all of the above operating modes and so references to them may be deleted in the specification document produced for a particular contract.

The general format and content of each control strategy is as follows: Schematic of plant module Plant description Control strategy Specification clause BMS points list Summary of plant operation Control flow chart. The Plant schematic is a simple drawing of the plant module that is being controlled. The drawings were created using the relevant symbols contained in British Standard BS Construction drawing practice; Part 3 Recommendations for symbols and other graphical conventions The Plant description provides an outline of the plant itself, its function and how it is operated.

The Control strategy is a description of the recommended method of control for the plant, including essential interlocks. Some strategies include figures and tables. The Specification clause contains the same information as that contained in the Control strategy except that it is written in a style that is commonly used in specification documents and it includes default values of setpoints and other parameters which the user can change as required to provide initial values for the particular specification.

The BMS points list is a table of the physical inputs from sensors, thermostats and other input devices and of the physical outputs to controlled devices that are associated with the control strategy or plant module.

The physical inputs and outputs are connected to one of the BMS outstations or controllers. The BMS points list gives the total number of analogue and digital inputs and outputs, both for the recommended inputs and outputs and the optional inputs and outputs that are in italics and totalised separately in brackets.

The BMS points list also gives an abbreviated signal name for each point. These signal names are used in the Flow charts. The Summary of plant operation gives the status of each physical output for each of the plant operating modes that are relevant to the plant module, assuming that no plant failure interlocks are active.

The Control flow chart is a graphical, step by step guide to the control and interlock structure of the control strategy. However, for some strategies not all of the above elements are necessary or relevant. For example, the strategies which relate to the control of the parameter primary supply air temperature of an air handling unit do not contain a Plant schematic. The strategies concerned with scheduling of the primary supply air temperature setpoint do not relate directly to a BMS physical output to a particular controlled device and so it is not appropriate to include a Summary of plant operation for them.

Within many of the individual control strategies some options or alternatives are included that concern details of the strategy and the controlled plant. For example, for air handling plant the main control parameter may be the primary supply air temperature delivered by the plant or it may be the temperature of the conditioned zone.

In cases where alternatives affect the BMS points list or Summary of plant operation, they are also shown by italic text. It is intended that the user of the Library select which options and alternatives are required for a particular specification document, and delete text and points from the BMS points list that relate to unused alternatives.

Default values for setpoints and other parameters have been incorporated in the text. These are indicated by underlining the value eg 18 C. The user of the Library should select appropriate values for their particular specification.

General specification clauses such as 'all setpoints in this specification shall be adjustable' are assumed to be provided as part of the general BMS specification and are not included here. A list of abbreviations for signal names used in the Library is provided in the Appendices. Creating a specification document To create a specification document for a particular plant from the individual control strategies available within the Library, the user should take the following steps: decide which plant functions are needed to make up the whole system, see table 1 decide for each plant function which of the available plant module options is to be used for strategies which offer alternatives or options, decide which of these are to be used.

The Library documentation of the selected control strategies can then be copied by the user into the particular specification document as required. This section shows in detail how elements of individual control strategies may be combined to produce a specification for a whole plant. The Library details only control strategies. The onus is on the designer to ensure that the selected strategies are integrated to form a working solution and that all supporting specification documentation such as equipment and other schedules, standard specifications and tender documentation is provided.
