witnessed by the consultant, all measurements and setpoints will be recorded and shall
be reflected in the O&M manuals.

Before the overall system acceptance tests are carried out, (witness testing) complete
O&M manuals will be handed over as stipulated in the specifications.

12. Operation Narrative & Sequence of Operation:

The central processing unit (CPU) located in parcel #17, is the heart of the building & energy
management system. All the equipment connected to the system can be either controlled or
monitored from this unit such as low flow, status, general alarm and running time totalizer
as required by IFC documents and contract specifications.

The interface with the fire alarm system will be done by a compatible software over the
backnet.

The BEMS of each parcel is a stand alone system connected via a router to the CPU via the
backnet, however it is able to work independently if required in case of emergency. The
router is normally installed in the last local control panel (LCP) at each parcel. In accordance
with the size of a parcel, a number of LCP's are installed, typically in the mechanical rooms
or on the roofs to control air handling units and fans. The control of VAV's will be via a room
thermostat and a control unit located in the VAV control panel, if installed in a single zone
system. If VAV's are being a part of a multi zone system, the control is done via a direct
digital controller (DDC) which is connected to the BEMS, and duct heaters are controlled via
room thermostat. Fan coil units are controlled by room thermostats without connection to the
BEMS. Computer room cooling units (in parcel #10) are self controlled, but an alarm signal
from each unit is connected to the BEMS.

For the electrical power services, status of incoming 11kV power circuit breakers, ring main
units, transformers, main low voltage circuit breakers, bus couplers and outgoing circuit
breakers is monitored by the BEMS. The main low voltage circuit breakers can also be
switched by the system. In addition the power consumption can be read via the kilowatt hour
meters.

There is a software interface with the lighting control system through RS232 modules which are
installed in the lighting panels.

For the plumbing and fire fighting system, the following equipment is monitored by the BEMS:

Booster pumps, water level in storage tank, water tank circulation pumps, main fire pumps,
jockey pumps and the domestic hot water storage heater temperature.

For the irrigation system, only water level in the irrigation tank, the irrigation pumps and
irrigation tank circulation pumps are monitored.

12.1 Sequence of Operation:

Egypt National For Mechanical & Date : 27-Aug-


Rev: A Page 10 of 28
Electrical 2006
The National Co.
For Mechanical & Electrical Works
a)Secondary Chilled Water Pumps.

-The start of the pump or pumps is initiated either by an adjustable time channel,
over the energy management and on load request.

-The lead / lag program decides which of the pumps will start. In case the
selected pump fails to start, the next pump in sequence will start.

-Two pressure sensors, 1 installed in the chilled water supply line and the other in
the return line from the system are evaluating the differential pressure between
the supply and return. By the resulting differentia pressure, the frequency
inverter will adjust the speed of the pump will decrease adjust the specs of the
pump. By increasing differential pressure, the speed will decrease and vise
versa.
-The energy consumption will be measured by means of two temperature sensors,
one installed in the chilled water supply line, the other the return line, and a
flow meter. (The measured temperature difference multiplied by the flow will
indicate the consumption in kcal).

-Other information available to the system are the status of the pumps on/off, trip,
normal / fault and low flow which is control by a differential pressure switch,
installed between the suction and the delivery side of the pump. Any of the
pumps can also be stopped over the BEMS.

b)Secondary Hot Water Pumps:

-The sequence of operation for the secondary hot water pumps is basically similar
to the sequence of operation for the chilled water pumps, but there is no
provision to measure the energy consumption.

-Thetemperature sensor in the hot water supply and return pipes are serving to
monitor the water temperature.

c)Air Handling Units:

-The start of the air handling units is controlled over a programmable time
channel over the energy management and on load request.

Cooling & Heating Coils.

-As soon the supply and return air fans are in operation, the temperature and
humidity sensors, installed in the return air duct, will via a controller
modulate the chilled and /or hot water control valves to the set point
valves. A temperature sensor installed in the supply duct is controlling the
air leaving the air handling unit and will close the cooling valve, if the
temperature is lower or close the heating valve if the temperature is higher
than a selected set point. If the air handling unit is in heating mode, the
cooling valve will close, if is cooling mode, the heating valve will close.

Egypt National For Mechanical & Date : 27-Aug-

Fan.

-The supply and return fans of the unit are controlled by a differential
pressure switch to detect any deviation of the fan performance. If the
pressure on the supply side is too low, the unit will stop.

-The fans will be also stop if the smoke detector, installed in the supply duct,
indicates that there is smoke in the supply or return duct work.

-Incase of a fire alarm from the area served by the AHU, the unit will be
switched of by the BEMS, if a signal is received from the alarm system.

-In case of a fire, the exhaust fan can be operated by overriding the program
to act as a smoke exhaust fan, with the exhaust air damper and smoke
damper in the return air in open position.
-If a purge cycle is initiated by the fire alarm system through the BEMS, the
return air fan will run for a period as pre programmed with the exhaust
damper and smoke dampers in open position.

-For air handling unites serving system containing VAV's, the fan motor
speed will be variable. A pressure sensor will be installed in the supply
duct will modulate the frequency inverter to maintain the pressure in the
supply duct system in accordance with the selected set point.

-Same of the air handling are configured as 100% fresh air units. In this ease
the supply fan is without speed control, the exhaust fan is installed in the
exhaust duct system, but controlled in the sequence of the air handling
unit fans.

-One air handling unit (parcel#8, unit no.2) has an additional supply fan
installed in a zone supply duct. Although the air handling unit supply and
air fans are equipped with variable speed drives, the additional zone
supply fan is of a constant flow type. The switching of the fan is
synchronized with the air handling unit.

Air Filters.

-The filters (or filter banks) in the air handling units are monitored by a
differential pressure switch. If the preset value is reached, an alarm signal
will be initiated.

Dampers.

-Smoke Damper.

In the supply and return air duct are typically installed for all air
handling units. If no smoke is detected in the duct and no signal is
received from the fire alarm system, the smoke dampers are in open
position.

Egypt National For Mechanical & Date : 27-Aug-


Rev: A Page 12 of 28
Electrical 2006
The National Co.
For Mechanical & Electrical Works

If smoke is detected or an order received from the alarm system and


the air handling unit stopped, the two dampers will close.

In case of fire an override command may start the return air fan to
evacuate smoke and to open the return air smoke damper.

-Exhaust Air Dampers.

The exhaust air damper is in closed position if the air handling unit is
switched off. If the CO2 level in the return air, measured by an air
quality sensor, is above the pre-set value, the damper will fully open.

The damper is modulating for controlling the return fan is running as a


smoke evacuation fan or if the unit is in purge cycle.

The damper is modulating for controlling the relative humidity through


the enthalpy software, i.e. the damper will modulate/open if the
relative humidity measured by the humidity sensor installed in the
return air duct is too high and modulate /close if the humidity is below
the pre-set value.

-Fresh Air Dampers.

The fresh air damper is in closed position if the air handling unit is
switched off. If the CO2 level is above the pre-set value, the damper is
in fully open position.

The dampers in fully open position if the CO2 content in the return air
is above the pre-set value.

If the return fan is running as an exhaust fan, the damper will be closed.

If the unit is running in a purge cycle, the damper will be open.

The damper is modulating/open, if the CO2 Level is too high and will
be closed, if the CO2 level is below the set point according to the
enthalpy software.

- Return Air Dampers.

The return air damper is closed if the air handling unit is switched off.
If the CO2 level in the return air duct is higher than the set point, the
damper will close.

If smoke is detected or a signal from the alarm system stops the unit,
the return air damper will close.

Egypt National For Mechanical & Date : 27-Aug-


Rev: A Page 13 of 28
Electrical 2006
The National Co.
For Mechanical & Electrical Works
If the return air fan is used for smoke evacuation or if the air handing
unit is in the purge cycle, the return air damper is fully closed.

Economizer Cycle.

-The exhaust, fresh air and return dampers are used if the free cooling
technique is applied. The dampers will modulate / open when the outside
air conditions / enthalpy is lower than the measured value in the return
duct and cooling is required at the same time.

d)Variable Air Volume Boxes.

- Single Zone System.

A single zone system is comprising of one VAV box and duct mounted heater.

The system is controlled by a room thermostat. The modulating actuator and


its control (GDB 181.1E / are supplied by the BEMS.

The damper is modulating / open, if the space temperature is less than the set
point in heating mode and the spec temperature is higher than eat point if the
cooling mode is selected via thermostat.

The damper id modulating / close if space temperature is higher than the set
point in heating mode and if the space temperature is lower than the set point
if the cooling mode is selected.

The duct heater will start if the space temperature is lower than the set point
and stop, if the space temperature is higher than the set point. The start / stop
command will be delayed for an adjustable period to avoid too rapid
switching.

-Multi Zone System.

Multi zone systems consist of one VAV box and up to seven duct mounted
heater.

The control of the VAV box is achieved by the direct digital controller (DDC)
which will operate the VAV by selecting the worst case of the set points
received from the room thermostats.

Egypt National For Mechanical & Date : 27-Aug-


Rev: A Page 14 of 28
Electrical 2006
The National Co.
For Mechanical & Electrical Works
The damper is modulating / open, if the space temperature is less than the set
point in heating mode and the space temperature is higher than the set point if
the cooling mode is selected via thermostat.

The damper id modulating / close if space temperature is higher than the set
point in heating mode and if the space temperature is lower than the set point
if the cooling mode is selected.

The duct mounted heater for each individual space will start if the space
temperature is higher than the set point. The start / stop command will be
delayed for an adjustable period to avoid too rapid switching.
The heaters will be disabled in case of power failure even if there is a request
for heating.

e)Fan Coil Units:

-The fan coil units are controlled individually by room thermostats and are not
connected to the BEMS. Over this stand alone control the user can select the
heating or cooling mode, temperature, fan motor speed and can switch the unit
on / off.

-The unit is equipped with a return air filter, cooling coil, electric heater and a 3-
speed motor.

-In parcel#14 (student housing) only, there is no electric heater installed, but the
cooling coil will be supplied by hot water instead during the heating period. The
change-over from cooling to heating mode in the fan coil will be initiated by a
temperature sensor in the hot water supply pipe.

-However the change from chilled water supply to hot water supply will be done
manually (in the pump room) by opening / closing the dedicated gate valves.

f)Single Speed Fans:

-The operation on / off is controlled over adjustable time channels, a differential


pressure switch will detect any mechanical fault in the fan or if the fan belt is
broken and give an alarm signal and stop the fan. For direct driven fans this
differential pressure sensor is not installed.

-If the fan is used as a supply fan, a filter will be installed before the fan. This
filter will be monitored by a differential pressure switch. If the differential
pressure reaches a pre-set value, an alarm signal will be actuated.

g)Smoke Exhaust and Staircase Pressurization Fans:

Egypt National For Mechanical & Date : 27-Aug-


Rev: A Page 15 of 28
Electrical 2006
The National Co.
For Mechanical & Electrical Works

-The smoke exhaust and the staircase pressurization fans are in normal operation
controlled through the BEMS upon receiving a signal from the fire alarm
system.

-For routine tests, the fan can be started and stopped over an adjustable time
channel.

h)Variable Speed Fans:

-The variable speed fans are interlocked with the air handling unit in which
system they are installed.

-A differential pressure switch over the fan will control the performance of the
fan. If the pressure on the supply side is too low, the fan will stop.

-The variable speed drive is controlled by a pressure sensor installed downstream


of the fan.

i)Electrical Services:

-As for the main electrical services the main breakers on the low voltage side of
the transformers and the bus couplers can be switched from the BEMS. The
monitoring of equipment is as follows:

11 kV breakers: trip (normal / fault), status (on / off), power failure.

Ring main units: trip (normal / fault), status (on / off).

Incoming LV breaker: trip (normal / fault), status (on / off), power


failure.

Bus couplers: trip (normal / fault), status (on / off), power failure.

Outgoing breakers: (normal / fault), status (on / off).

-Current transducers for reading of power consumption are provided for bus
couplers and outgoing breakers.

-The multi meter (supplied by others) will be interfaced with the BEMS.

-The status of the generators will be obtained via the bus controller.

j)Plumbing:

-The domestic hot water storage tanks in parcels# 7,11,14&15 will be monitored
by temperature sensors in the hot water pipe.

Egypt National For Mechanical & Date : 27-Aug-

k)Tunnel Ventilation System:

- The tunnel ventilation system consists of single speed supply and two speed
exhaust fans which are operated by adjustable time channels.

-A differential pressure switch is installed over the fans which will give an alarm
in case of low pressure (fan belt broken) and stop the motor.

-Differential pressure switches are installed also over the filter section in the air
intake. If high pressure is detected, an alarm will be signaled

-As a part of the fire fighting system, smoke curtains are installed to divide the
tunnel into 12 sectors and thus avoiding the smoke to spread in case of fire.

-If an alarm is received from the fire alarm system, the following operations will
be initiated by the BEMS:

-Smoke curtains at the two ends of the sector which is the sources of the alarm
will close.

-The supply air fan dedicated for this sector will stop.
-The return air damper will close and the smoke damper installed at high level in
the smoke exhaust duct will open.

- The exhaust fan will change to the second speed.

Tunnel Hot Water Piping System:

The hot water system in the tunnel is fitted with 4 bypasses with
modulating valves in different locations as shown on drawings.

By means of flow meters, installed the supply pipe, the flow will
be measured in 4 places and if the flow is higher than the set
point value, the bypass will modulate / open,. If the flow is below
the set point value, the valve will modulate / close.

Tunnel Chilled Water Piping System:

The BEMS control system of the chilled water system in the


tunnel consists of 4 bypasses with modulating valves and one
shut-off valve in the main supply and return pipes.

The bypass located between parcels#11 and 14 will be controlled


by pressure sensors, installed in the supply and return pipe of
parcel#14. If the differential pressure is increasing above the set
point, the bypass valve will modulate / open, if the differential
pressure is decreasing, the valve will modulate / close.
The other 3 bypasses are controlled over the differential pressure
in the main supply and return lines. By increasing differential

pressure (above the set point) the valve will modulate / open, by
decreasing differential pressure (below the set point) the valve
will modulate / close.

2 shut-off valves are installed in the main line (20") supply and
return, downstream of the bypass (controlled via pressure sensors
in the parcel#14 supply & return lines).

The operation of these valves is controlled over an adjustable


time channel. If the valve is opened or closed, a feedback should
confirm the operation after a 2 sec. delay, otherwise an alarm will
be initiated.

The chilled water flow in the main supply pipe is monitored by


means of flow meters.

monitored only.

For the irrigation water storage tanks, only high and low level
alarms are signaled to the BEMS.


For irrigation tank circulating pumps, status and power failure
are monitored only.
Ventilation Fan

Supply fans for general areas are controlled by the BEMS over
an adjustable time channel. These supply fans are equipped with
a differential pressure switch over the filter which will indicate
an alarm if the differential pressure is above the set point. A
second differential pressure switch is installed over the fan and
will stop the fan motor, if the differential pressure is detected
lower than the set point.

The exhaust fans are controlled as the supply fans but only fitted
with one differential pressure switch over the fan as there are no
filters installed.

The exhaust fans serving the boiler room and the chiller room (6
fans each) are interlocked and controlled in groups of 3. The start

group has dedicated sensor).

Electrical Services

For the transformers, (4 no.) general alarm, high and low


temperature limit is monitored.

For the ring main, the status on / off and normal / fan it is
monitored and alarm for power failure is signaled for the two
incoming and outgoing breakers of each RMU.

On the low voltage side, the incoming breakers (4) and couplers
(6) can be switched on / off over the BEMS and the status and
power failure alarm are being monitored. In addition there is an
interface with the multi meter (supplied by others) for reading of
kW hours, current and voltage.

A software interface between the fire alarm system and the


BEMS will be provided.

From the central emergency battery unit (UPS) the general alarm
only is monitored.
The provisions for the lighting control (contactors) is not defined
yet, no indication on the IFC electrical design and shop drawings
are not available.
