On Demand Renewable energy sources are becoming more commonly incorporated by utilities. Unlike conventional generated power sources, renewables are intermittent and variable by their very nature. While utility and grid operators are integrating renewable energy into their systems through power management experiences, municipalities and commercial/industrial applications are turning toward Distributed Energy Resources (DER) to augment or replace utility provided power.
On Demand This webinar will examine the role intelligent switchboards play in meeting the power management challenges of sustainable energy sources such as solar and wind as well as the providing the flexibility to meet potential future requirements.
On Demand Intelligent power management systems, which are the nexus of a microgrid, must seamlessly adapt to more dynamic power sources while ensuring uninterrupted power. Moreover, the power infrastructure must be efficient and adept when it comes to accommodating continuously varying load demands.
On Demand Traditional power management systems are primarily designed to switch from utility power to another continuous power source, such as a backup generator. Most recently, microgrid technologies are being considered to help optimize the availability of power systems as well as allowing them to accommodate a variety of variable and intermittent distributed energy sources.
On Demand Designing a Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) System for your next project does not have to be complicated. The experts at Trane have broken down VRF System design into a 4-step process, including system type, humidity control, ventilation considerations, and controls selection.
On Demand Trane engineering and product experts will review the latest in market trends related to IoT and smart technology, along with connectivity options for small commercial buildings. This webinar will focus on small building connectivity solutions that include smart thermostats and control systems that are compatible with Trane’s full lineup of light commercial rooftop units and split systems for single and multi-zone systems as well as multi-site applications.
On Demand Redundancy is a vital aspect to consider when evaluating system infrastructure on a medical campus with critical care facilities. A detailed phasing plan and sequence of operations can be key to a successful project. In this presentation, we’ll examine the importance of these factors through a recently completed central emergency power plant (CEPP) project on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).
On Demand Mission critical operations cannot be without power for one second. That’s why it’s imperative for facility managers to ensure they have adequate systems on-site to handle any and all power interruptions. Over the last 10 years, power technologies have changed significantly. This webinar will explore these changes.
On Demand Once you have selected Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) as the HVAC technology for your next project, you need to consider how to control your system. Integrated controls provide benefits beyond HVAC system control, with the ability to integrate other technologies like a Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS). DOAS systems are designed to condition up to 100% of outdoor air year-round, reduce latent loads, enhance comfort and energy efficiency, and maintain your building’s indoor air quality.
On Demand Modern construction requirements, increased interest in indoor air quality, sustainability and the rising cost of energy are driving adoption of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems in the United States and worldwide. As such, building owners, facility managers and project teams will be responsible for buildings where VRF systems are applied with complementary third-party HVAC equipment.
