Abstract : The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Guide Specifications (CEGS) 15950 and Technical Manual (TM) 5-815-3 on heating ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) control systems provide guidance on designing and specifying standard HVAC control systems that use single-loop digital controllers. This study demonstrated the retrofit of standard control systems to HVAC systems to evaluate standard HVAC control system equipment and designs, and to evaluate the CEGS and TM documents. Standard HVAC control systems were retrofitted at two Army installations. At the first site, researchers constructed, installed, and commissioned a prototype of the standard HVAC control system. At the second site, researchers provided technical assistance to the Directorate of Engineer and Housing (DEH) engineer, who designed a standard HVAC Control System and hired a local contractor to construct, install, and commission the system.
