ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer:
James Coogan
Principal Engineer in Product Development
Siemens Building Technologies

ASHRAE Guideline 36

Jim Coogan is a Principal Engineer in product development and applications at Siemens Building Technologies. In 35 years designing controls for mechanical systems, he has contributed to products ranging from simple room controllers to Internet-based operator interfaces. His work has resulted in numerous patents. 

Jim has chaired several ASHRAE Technical Committees including, Control Theory and Applications, and Laboratory Systems. He also chaired the committee that developed a Standard Method of Test for Airflow Controls. Jim serves as vice-chair of the committee updating the ANSI Z9.5 Standard: Laboratory Ventilation. Jim participates in the International Institute for Sustainable Laboratories. 

Publications include technical papers on room pressurization and laboratory system commissioning and VAV flow control. Jim earned his SB in mechanical engineering at MIT.

Guideline 36
The controls community in ASHRAE aims to improve HVAC operation and building automation by developing a new guideline for specifying the sequence of operation.  Goals include:
  • Higher quality in installed systems through standardization
  • Higher energy efficiency through advanced sequence design
  • Better building operation through fault detection and smart alarm strategies
The talk recounts the background and history of the project.  It presents the development status and likely course to adoption and maintenance.  Most importantly, it explains the content of the current draft, enabling system specifiers to pick up selected aspects and put them to work now.
