Distinguished Lecturer James J. Coogan

The Wisconsin Chapter of ASHRAE is proud to announce that on Thursday, February 15th, James J. Coogan will be presenting on: “ASHRAE Guideline 36P: High Performance Sequences of Operation”.

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. Jim earned his SB in mechanical engineering at MIT.

Presentation Info: ASHRAE Guideline 36P: High Performance Seq. of Operations

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.

We are very excited to have Jim Coogan for our February DL Presentation.
