    QF Level: 5
    Credit Points: 3
    Year: 4
    Pre-requisite: Electrical Services Fundamental; HVACR I
    Co-requisite: Nil
    Module Aim(s): The Building Automation (BA) system is an essential system of modern buildings.  Dynamic performance and control of building services systems are important for the systems to meet the design objectives.  This module introduces the principles and application of building automation system and building process control.  It also enables students explore on these issues: (1) network and configuration of building automation (BA) and intelligent building (IB) systems; (2) interfacing BA system with building services systems; (3) dynamic performance of building processes/systems, control fundamentals and building process control; and (4) control strategies for better energy efficiency and building environmental performance.
    Learning Outcomes: On completion of this Module, students are expected to be able to:
    1. undertake architectural design and specify the requirements for building automation systems and intelligent building technologies;
    2. assess the impact of using different architectures, LAN protocols/standards in BA system design and selection;
    3. design and analyse the control of building processes and manage the stability and tuning issues of process control;
    4. specify supervisory control and management strategies and assess their impact on indoor environmental quality, energy efficiency and reliability of systems, and equipment; and
    5. specify the integration/interface of building automation systems with building services systems and integration between different intelligent building systems.
