HVAC Commissioning 2 - FAT / SAT
What you'll learn
- Definitions of FAT and SAT for HVAC Control System
- What kinds of tests to be done during FAT and SAT
- How to check I/O Points
- How to check Functions
- How to check HMI (Human Machine Interface)
- What is the general Control Panel (CP) Configuration
- How to check power cables in the control panel
- How to check painting of the control panel
- The basic understand of HVAC system
Commissioning is one of the critical procedures for the project. It is not easy to understand because it depends on the project and end-user standards. For example, I did the performance test for the HVAC system when I worked for an EPC project in Qatar. But I didn’t do it when I handled an EPC project in UAE.
Furthermore, it is difficult for engineers who have majored mechanical engineering in their colleges to deal with automatic control systems. Generally speaking, a control panel (CP) has lots of components to check during the FAT or SAT.
These are the main reasons for me to desire to make this course. I will show you the typical FAT and SAT for the HVAC industrial projects. If you need to deal with a FAT or SAT for the HVAC projects, you can understand about it with this course. You can use this course according to the situation since I put activities as many as possible into this course to contain as much as information.
We will discuss about the below activities.
· AHU, ACCU & CP Appearance
· CP Painting
· CP Configuration
· CP Power Cable
· CP Power On
· I/O Point Check
· Function Test
From this course, you will get ideas about what kinds of activities shall be done during the FAT or SAT. For your information, I have made this course according to my experiences I got while working for 4 EPC projects in Middle East.
I hope you would understand about the HVAC more with this course.
Who this course is for:
- Students who want to work in the industrial or commercial construction field
- Beginner level engineer in the HVAC construction and engineering company
- HVAC engineer working for the vendor, contractor or end-user side,
- Inspectors who want to understand what kinds of tests to be done during the HVAC FAT and SAT
- Engineers who need to attend FAT or SAT but have majored mechanical engineering in their colleges
