Description

For courses in HVAC Controls.Unique in combining into one text the operational and selection characteristics of commonly used control devices with the thermal and response characteristics of HVAC processes. It presents step by step techniques for analyzing the response of actual control loops along with typical calibration procedures. This volume helps students develop analytical skills used to diagnose and rectify operational problems in any system by focusing on how and why a process responds in a given manner to changes in a measured variable.show more
