Topic:  ASHRAE 62.1:  Dynamic Reset

ASHRAE Standard 62.1 “Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality,” provides minimum requirements for proper ventilation in commercial, institutional and hi-rise residential buildings. The minimum outdoor airflow rates in the model codes – based on the prescriptive Ventilation Rate Procedure (VRP) of Standard 62.1 – assure that ventilation capacity matches ventilation load atdesign conditions. However, ASHRAE Standard 90.1 and Standard 189.1 both require that some systems to be operated so that current ventilation capacity modulates to match current ventilation load or “demand.” Both standards require some form of demand control ventilation (DCV). Standard 62.1 allows optional “dynamic reset” controls to help match current capacity to load, but design details for such controls are left to the designer. As past Chairman of SSPC 62.1, and as a key member of the PMS for recent research related to DCV, Mr. Stanke is in a unique position to understand and explain the dynamic reset options, including both zone-level DCV for all system types, and system-level “ventilation reset control” for multiple-zone (VAV) systems.

Speaker:  Dennis Stanke

Dennis, a 1971 mechanical engineering graduate from the University of Wisconsin, began his career with Allen-Bradley Company in Milwaukee, then joined Trane in 1973. For twelve years as a development engineer, he designed electrical and electronic unit controllers for various Trane equipment, and holds three U.S. patents related to VAV system controls. Then, for nearly thirty years as an applications engineer specializing in airside systems and control, ventilation and indoor air quality, he wrote numerous Trane Applications Engineering Manuals and Engineers Newsletters as well as numerous articles for the ASHRAE Journal. He appeared regularly on Trane Engineers Newsletter Live broadcasts and traveled extensively to present ventilation system concepts to various audiences, primarily consulting engineers, building owners and design/build contractors. After almost 41 years of service, Dennis has retired from Trane but remains active in ASHRAE. A past-president of the La Crosse Area Chapter, an ASHRAE Fellow, recipient of the ASHRAE Standards Achievement Award, the Distinguished Service Award, and the Exceptional Service Award, as well as an ASHRAE Life Member, he has served as Chairman for SSPC 62.1 (Standard 62.1, “Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality”) and as Chairman for SSPC 189.1 (Standard 189.1 “Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings”). He is currently a consultant to SSPC 62.1 and a non-voting member of SSPC 189.1, as well as a member of the Environmental Health Committee. He has also served on the Standards Committee, Publishing Council and Program Committee, and the editorial board for the ASHRAE publication “IAQ Applications.” Dennis has served on research advisory boards at UC-Berkeley (Centers for the Built Environment) and Penn State University (Indoor Environment Center) and he is a former member of USGBC LEED Technical Advisory Group for Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ TAG).
