“Chuyue took a summer internship with our Asset Sustainability Group and worked on setting up and evaluating Fault Detection and Diagnostic (FDD) Rules within Ameresco’s Building Dynamics framework. Ameresco had been collecting data from the Wellesley building automation system and Sun worked on establishing the applicable fault detection and diagnostic rules. The final result was a report that could be run across numerous air handling units (across different buildings) for about 20+ FDD rules for a given period to identify when and how frequently the faults occurred.”
