Beginning with an overview of the benefits of the modern building control system, the authors go on to describe the different controls and their applications, and include advice on their set-up and tuning for stable operation. There are chapters, on the practical design of control systems, how to work from the hardware components and their inclusion in networks, through to control strategies in Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems and whole buildings. The relationship between Building, Management Systems (BMS) and information technology systems is discussed, prior to a concluding chapter dealing with the building procurement process and the importance of considering control requirements at an early stage in the design process.
