Sacramento City College is fortunate to have a world-class, hands-on commercial HVAC/R energy efficiency training laboratory. The cooling systems include a commercial chiller, with ice thermal storage system, and a plate & frame heat exchanger. The heating systems include three different commercial boiler configurations: low pressure steam, high-pressure steam and hot water. This central plant equipment, and associated pumping, serves 3 VAV air handlers and is controlled by a state-of-the-art direct digital control (DDC) energy management system featuring 50 workstations in two separate classrooms. This is all operational equipment, designed and built for instructional use, that will give students hands-on experience auditing, commissioning, maintaining, troubleshooting, and operating in the most energy efficient manner. -Submitted by Mark Hamilton, Assistant Professor there, 2011.
