Linear Reset Schedule Formula

The linear reset schedule is used to reset a particular setpoint based on a particular parameter. Some
examples are:
Boiler hot water supply temperature reset based on the outside air temperature. In this instance, the hot
water bypass valve is modulated to control the temperature of the water flow.
Supply air temperature reset based on the space zone calling for the most cooling or heating.
Chilled water supply temperature reset based on the chilled water return temperature.

Y..=The variable that is reset
m..=The slope of the reset line
x...=The parameter that the reset is based upon
b...=System constant that defines the equation of the line
Y
1
.=Minimum value of the reset variable
Y
2
.=Maximum value of the reset variable
X
1
.=Minimum value of the dependent value
X
2
.=Maximum value of the dependent value

STEP 1: Determine the minimum and maximum values of the system, i.e. Y
1
, Y
2
, X
1
, and X
2
.

Example: Boiler hot water reset schedule. When the outside air temperature is 50 degrees F or below, the
hot water supply temperature should be reset to 140 degrees F. When the outside air temperature is 90
degrees F or above, the hot water supply temperature should be reset to 110 degrees F.

From the sequence of operation above, Y
1
=140, Y
2
=110, X
1
=50, and X
2
=90.

STEP 2: Determine the slope of the line.

m =Y
2
Y
1
=110 140 =-30 =-0.75
X
2
X
1
90 50 40

STEP 3: Determine b. Plug in the known parameters into the equation of the line and solve for b.

Y =mx +b b =Y mx =140 (-0.75)(50) =72.5

b =177.5

38

STEP 4: Plug in the calculated values for m and b into the equation for a line.

Y =mx +b =(-0.75)x +177.5

Here, Y is the HOT WATER SUPPLY TEMPERATURE and x is the OUTSIDE AIR
TEMPERATURE.

Although CBAS 2000 calculates linear reset equations automatically with the RESET
SCHEDULE function, a sample calculation point in another program for this example
would look like:

HOT WATER SUPPLY TEMPERATURE = -0.75 X OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE + 177.5
