General

Air Handling Units are controlled by AHU Controllers.

Air Handling Units are Demand Driven from the zones of the building that they serve; you will need at least one Zone Controller in order to make the AHU run.

AHU Controllers may need Submodules registered to them to extend their control abilities to match your application; see page 3 19.

The AHU Controller may contain the System Housekeeping Function; see System Design section 7.

Three types of AHU Controller are available for:

Constant Supply Temperature - Fresh Air Plant

Constant Return Temperature - Return Air Plant

Variable Supply Temperature - Variable Supply Air

Air Handling Units

Outputs

 

Switching outputs are provided for Heating and Cooling, 2 relays for each. The outputs are either configured to drive a valve - wet battery, or as 2-stage outputs for an electric or direct-fired gas battery

Valves

 

for

wet batteries, valves are Raise / Lower type;

 

if 0-10V DC valves are used, you need an additional Actuator Submodule registered to the AHU Controller to give 0-10V

DC

outputs for heating and cooling. Note - 0-10V DC valves

give no control benefits over Raise/Lower valves use

ACT/DIN/AOP/921

 

choose the product variant to suit your battery types; an

 

AHU/

/ /WW

will have a wet heating battery, and a wet

cooling battery.

An

AHU/

/ /WE

will have a wet heating battery and a single

or 2-stage cooling battery

Fans

 

relay outputs are provided for Supply and Extract Fans. If isolation dampers are fitted, use these outputs to drive the damper, and use an end switch on the damper to start the fan. This ensures the damper is open before the fan can start

Inputs

 

2 inputs are provided for Volt-free contacts; the first is for Fan Status monitoring, usually a pressure switch, which can be used to shut down the AHU upon Fan failure, or just raise an alarm

a second input is provided for Filter Blocked monitoring; this

 

can

be set to raise an alarm. If you have 2 filters, common

the

signals to provide a single Filter Blocked contact.

Occupancy Times

are

determined by the Zone Controllers registered to the

AHU Controller; the AHU Controller has no Occupancy Times itself.

AHU/DIN/FRE/

will have one or more Zone Controllers with

Occupancy Demand Interconnects to the AHU Controller. Any one of the Zones going into Occupation will cause the plant to run, which is what is needed for a Fresh Air system. The AHU will not normally run during Optimum Start or Fabric Protection because it is taking no part in the heating or cooling of the space.

AHU Controller can be Setpoint Supervised from a Zone Controller. Set SPTY=4 in AHU Controller.

usually has a dedicated Zone Controller

AHU/DIN/RET/

which manages the AHU Occupancy Times using Occupancy Demand, or both Times and Return Air Setpoint using Setpoint Supervision. The plant will run during Occupancy, and also during periods of Optimum Start and Fabric Protection because it is the sole form of heating and cooling for the space.

AHU/DIN/SUP/

will have one or more Zone Controllers

with Energy Demand Interconnects to the AHU Controller. Any one of the Zones going into Occupation will cause the plant to run; it will also run during periods of Optimum Start and Fabric Protection because it is the sole form of heating

and cooling for the space.

Fabric Protection

Zone Controller will control space to Non-Occupied Setpoint during Non-Occupancy, to protect the building fabric against condensation damage

use of Intelligent T+RH sensor allows RH-based Fabric Protection - use SEN/PTR/TRH/005 See Zone Controller Data Sheet for full information

Night Cooling

the fans can be used to draw cool night air into the building in order to pre-cool the space prior to occupation. This feature requires that a sensor is wired to the Return Air terminals on the AHU Controller - a sensor located somewhere in the space is better than a duct sensor for this application, as it gives a better reading when the fans are stopped.

Product Codes and Type Settings

The Type of AHU that is required Fresh Air, Supply Air etc is normally specified as part of the Product Order Code. However the Type of AHU can be freely altered by setting the SPTY Parameter in the Module.

AHU’s Return Temperature Control

Sensors

Cascade Control

Return Air AHU’s require both Return and Supply Air Sensors. The control algorithm is that the AHU has two temperature control loops, one for Supply Air control and one for Return Air control. The Return Air control is cascaded onto the Supply Air setpoint which it can vary between the max. and min. Supply Air settings. This limits the temperature of the air supplied from the AHU to avoid discomfort.

Return Air Only Control

The AHU can be used with Return Air temperature sensors only. In this case the Return air control loop directly drives the control demand to the output drivers. This means that the supply air temperature is not limited by the control system. This type of control is often used with Direct Gas Fired plant.

Multiple Intelligent Sensors

Intelligent Sensors can be used with AHU/DIN/RET, either Temperature or T+Rh or Zone Controllers, to provide the Return Air value. Up to 10 sensors or Zone Controllers are wired to the network and registered to a Monitoring Module MON/DIN/6R/002 which will calculate the Minimum, Maximum or Average of the readings. This processed value is passed on to the AHU Controller as a Return Air Temperature and Humidity if T+Rh sensors are used.

Variable Supply Temperature

AHU Supply air Temperature is controlled to a setpoint that is determined from inputs from other modules

The main applications are for AHU Slaving and to feed Multiple ReHeat Terminal Units These two applications are covered in the next pages

AHU Slaving is where the slaved AHU controls its Supply Temperature to the same setpoint as the Master unit Supply Temperature

The Multiple ReHeat Terminal Units send their Heat and Cool Demands to the AHU Controller which are used to calculate the Supply Air Setpoint. The Setpoint is calculated to minimise the amount of ReHeat while ensuring the Zone with the highest Demand is just satisfied.

This has the effect of varying the Supply Air Temperature to give the best Energy Efficiency consistent with maintaining Control

Supply Air Sensor must be fitted AHU will not run if Sensor is missing

3 14

AHU’s Variable Supply Temperature

Reheat Terminals

AHU controller supplies tempered air to a number of Reheat terminal units

Terminal units are each controlled by a fan coil controller

Fan coils occupancy and setpoint are driven from Zone controllers - see Terminal Unit controls section for full details

AHU Supply temperature varies to minimise the amount of Reheat required

AHU must have Supply temperature sensor fitted or AHU will not run.

Slaving AHU’s

Air Handling units can be slaved together. This means that they will supply air to the same Supply Air Setpoint.

This is particularly useful for a number of AHU’s in one large area. If they were all working independently on Return Air control they could end up fighting each other by supplying air at different temperatures.

With the AHU slaving feature, one AHU will control Return air and all will supply the same Supply air setpoint.

AHU’s Submodules

PreHeater submodule

Control of LPHW or Electric PreHeater Battery

PreHeater Battery heats incoming air in low ambient conditions to prevent Cooling Battery or Filters from freezing

Temperature Sensor for PreHeater Off Coil Temperature is normally fitted. PreHeater is enabled if Air Temperature falls to OCSP Parameter preset 5 DegC and controls the Off Coil Temperature to this value. Without Temperature Sensor the PreHeater Output is Scheduled ON as the Outside Air Temperature falls below the OCSP Parameter. This should be regarded as a safety default if the Off Coil Temperature Sensor fails not as a Primary Control Method

LPHW Battery Control

Raise - Lower Valves use PRE/DIN/3T/105 Analogue Drive Valves use PRE/DIN/AOP/721

Circulation Pump can use Output Channel C or Analogue Output B

Heat Demand is sent from Main AHU Controller provided it has Wet Heating Battery specified. The Heat Demand is not set up from the PreHeater submodule

Set HDLY Parameter to negative value - suggest -5.0 to give 5 minute delay on Preheater during Cold Start Routine

Cold Start Routine

If the Ambient Temperature is below OCSP Parameter - default 5 DegC - then the unit will go through a Cold Start Routine as follows:

1 Heat Demand sent from AHU Controller to Boiler to provide Hot Water

2 When Boiler Temperature rises above Minimum Value then PreHeater Battery Valve will open 100%

3 After the PreHeater Valve has been open for the Delay Time set on the HDLY Parameter then the Fans will run HDLY must be set to a negative value to enable this feature Default Value 0

AHU’s Submodules

Toilet Extract

some applications need fans to run when any one of a number of areas of the building are occupied e.g. Toilet Extract Fans, Stairwell Vent Fans

use Secondary Circuit Controllers to collate Occupancy Demand signals from Zone Controllers; any Zone entering Occupancy will cause the fans to run.

the collated Occupancy Demand can be passed on to another module e.g. an AHU Controller, if that has to run as well

Occupancy Demand Parameter OCDS must be manually set on Zone Controllers to send signal to Secondary Circuit Controller This connection must be manually set. It does not automatically set by Push Button Registration.

Single Extract Fan working with multiple Zones; use CTU/DIN/3T/101 using the Occupation Switch output.

Twin Extract Fan working with multiple Zones; use CTU/DIN/PCO/3T/004. The fans will duty-rotate every time they start, and will change over from duty to standby upon duty fan failure. A fan status signal is required, not a trip signal.

Staged Extract Fans working with multiple Zones; use CTU/DIN/3T/108 for more stages based on Zone Heating Demands or /208 for Zone Cooling Demands. The Occupation Switch output is used to switch the continuously-running stage, and the remaining 2 outputs are used to switch the demand-switched stages. This Module must be driven by Heat and Cool Demands not Occupancy Demand as the Demand level is used to determine the number of stages that are running

AHU’s Examples

AHU General

AHU is a Fresh Air plant providing Tempered Fresh Air i.e. Outside Air heated or cooled to a constant supply temperature.

AHU Controller is performing System Housekeeping function and therefore needs an Outside Temperature Sensor - could be a conventional sensor hardwired to its input terminals, or use an Intelligent Sensor connected to the network, and registered to the AHU Controller Use AHU/DIN/FRE/WW/SH/001

for systems with Boiler plant, you may already have a Boiler Controller with System Housekeeping; you can only have one Housekeeper per system, so you will need to choose a non- housekeeping AHU Controller. See System Design section 7 Use AHU/DIN/FRE/WW/NH/001

Sensors

must fit Supply Air sensor and Outside Air sensor, see above

can fit Return Air sensor for monitoring, or it may be needed for control - Night Cooling etc. - see AHU section

Inputs

inputs for Fan Status and Filter Status are optional; note these need to be status from pressure switch or contactor auxiliary, not trip signals

input for remote disable/enable Volt-Free Contact or external potentiometer for setpoint trim are optional; see Data Sheet.

Outputs

this example has wet heating and cooling batteries; other types i.e electric or direct gas-fired, will mean you need to choose a different output option - see AHU section

Valves

this example uses Raise / Lower type valves; if 0-10V dc valves are used, you need an additional Actuator Submodule registered to the AHU Controller to give 0-10V dc outputs for heating and cooling. Note that 0-10V dc valves give no control benefits over Raise/Lower valves.

AHU’s Examples

3 43

Occupancy Demand

the AHU will be made to run depending on the Occupancy Status of one or more Zone Controllers - you must have at least one Zone Controller registered to the AHU with an Occupancy Demand Interconnect to make it run. The Zone Controllers will each send an Occupancy Demand signal to the AHU Controller; the AHU will run when any Zone is in Occupancy.

the Zone Controllers could be doing another job as well e.g. controlling a radiator circuit.

the AHU Controller can send its Energy Demand signals to other modules controlling the CT Circuits feeding Hot or Chilled Water to its batteries if it has “wet” batteries. These signals are sent using Energy demand Interconnects.

when any of the Zones enters Occupancy, the AHU will run. When all of the Zones are in non-Occupancy, the AHU will stop after any run-on time has elapsed.

Energy Demand signals for Heating and Cooling may be sent to other modules e.g. Secondary Circuit Controllers.

Configuration Parameter Settings

Automatically set during Registration

OCDS parameter in the Zone Controllers will automatically be set to 51 because the AHU is address A1; if it was A2, OCDS would be set to 52, and so on.

HTSC and CLSC Parameters in the AHU Controller would be automatically set to “point” the AHU’s Heating and Cooling Demand signal at the modules which are controlling the flow of water to the Heating and Cooling Coils, not shown.

Parameters that must be set manually

no other parameters have to be adjusted

Examples of Parameters that may need to be set manually

if fan or filter status are wired to the AHU Controller inputs, the ALRM and ALST Parameters may need to be adjusted - see Data Sheet.

if you wish to use Setpoint Supervision to allow the user to adjust the Supply Air temperature from a Zone Controller, set SPTY to 4, and then register to the Zone for Setpoint Supervision Interconnect, it does not have to be one of the Zones that is being used for Occupancy Demand control

if using an external enable/disable signal, adjust INMD accordingly - see Data Sheet.

if you are using the Night Cooling feature to pre-cool the building, set NTCL to the desired setpoint.

RHSP is the setpoint for de-humidification control; if the AHU is capable of de-hum, this can be set to a non-zero value which will enable de-hum and be used as the setpoint.

Example 2 - Return Air Control

This example shows the addition of Submodules to an AHU Controller to control a more complex AHU.

AHU General

AHU is a Return Air plant providing Conditioned Air i.e. Outside Air heated or cooled, humidified or dehumidified to a variable Supply Air setpoint so as to achieve constant return air temperature and humidity.

AHU Controller is performing System Housekeeping* function and therefore needs an Outside Temperature Sensor which could be a conventional sensor hardwired to its input terminals, or use an Intelligent Sensor connected to the network, and registered to the AHU Controller

for systems with Boiler plant, you may already have a Boiler Controller with System Housekeeping; you can only have one Housekeeper per system, so you will need to choose a non- housekeeping AHU Controller. See System Design section 7 for details

HTSC and CLSC Parameters in the AHU Controller are automatically set to “point” the AHU’s Heating and Cooling Demand signal at the modules which are controlling the flow of water to the Heating and Cooling Coils, not shown.

Parameters that must be set manually

to enable de-humidification control, set RHSP in the AHU Controller to the desired Return Air RH dehum setpoint, the default value of zero disables dehum.

the parameter SPRH in the Humidity Controller sets the humidification setpoint; it is important to leave a deadband between the Humidification and Dehumidification setpoints, so set it perhaps 5% or 10% lower than RHSP.

the above two steps will set up normal humidification control; other forms of control are possible, see Humidity submodule Data Sheet

the minimum fresh air position for the dampers needs to be set; once this is established by measurement of airflow during commissioning, the position of the dampers may be read on HDMD, and this value is then entered into parameter MNFA to set the minimum fresh air position.

Examples of Parameters that may need to be set manually

see example 1 for some common settings

if no off-coil sensor is being used for the preheater, it may be necessary to adjust DEGR parameter - see Data Sheet
