PRAC+ adaptive tuning provides the following benefits:

  • The time required to tune new control systems is reduced or eliminated.
  • The time required to retune control systems due to changes in seasons, loads, or equipment performance is eliminated.
  • Equipment life is increased, because fewer oscillations cause less wear.
  • Energy use decreases with stable control loops. Oscillatory control behavior causes unnecessary preheating or mechanical cooling, which adaptive control prevents.
  • Comfort improves through more accurate control system performance.
  • Safety improves in environments where safety systems are dependent on the performance of HVAC control systems, such as hospitals and laboratories.
