Our guest this episode Francisco Valentine PE talking about his book on BAS & building controls and his take on the current state of building services engineering training i.e. the type of training that is actually useful and explains “how to”.
If you enjoy this episode, share it with friends and give us a review, it helps more than you know.
In this episode, we discuss:
- How poor training led Francisco to write his book
- The algebra of Francisco i.e. PE + CxE = Controls Engineering = Francisco Valentine
- The lack of point to point testing and field calibration
- How systems engineering knowledge is vital in controls commissioning
And much more…….
