Pacific Controls has completed a significant project at Dubai Al Nahda, a residential building with five floors and approximate area of 45000 sq ft in UAE. The system has been placed to control the HVAC. We do logic controls wherein we initiate to put space temperature sensors to monitor the temperature only on common areas.
Aside from that we also placed temperature set point schedules which reset the temperatures to a higher limit during night time and as well during day time when cooling load is much less. Also for the lighting system, we initiate to have a time based control system. During day time when there is enough daylight, the lights on the floor corridors are switched off automatically. Al Nahda (B+G+12) Commercial and residential building has two chillers with constant speed primary pumps, variable speed secondary pumps and two FAHUs. We provide energy management system for the optimization of energy. We monitor and control all parameters of the chillers and FAHU to improve the efficiency.
