This course presents an overview of building automation systems, communication protocols, system integration and data analytics as it relates to the role of energy management professionals. Topics include identifying different industry standard communication protocols and normalizing data so it can be analyzed by software. The course will cover Industry standard automation protocols and standards such as BACnet, LonWorks, Modbus Haystack and CoBe and will have students identify what role they play in today’s building automation industry. The course will cover The Internet of Things (IoT) as well as practical use cases in order to understand how this might affect the future of DDC controls. Students will learn how to integrate to various data sources, pull the data into a common platform, give the data metadata so it is meaningful to software, and then run analytics on that data to identify potential areas of optimization.
