Abstract

The objective of commissioning is to provide documented confirmation that a facility fulfils functional and performance requirements. Commissioning recognizes the integrated nature of water flow glazing systems performance. Commissioning is carried out to prove that systems operate and perform to the design intent and specification. To reach this goal, it is necessary for the commissioning process to establish and document project requirements, performance specifications, and system functions. It is important to verify and document compliance with these criteria throughout the design, proof of concept, construction, and the initial period of operation. The commissioning process works in conjunction with the project design team through the design stage and the construction stage. It prepares a commissioning plan and final commissioning results. The main results of this work are the elaboration of detailed checklists for the design and the construction stages to assure that the water flow glazing facade is properly installed, started and checked out. During the installation, various tests are undertaken known as static testing. Upon completion of static testing, dynamic testing is undertaken. Generally, during the integration process, some equipment of the primary circuit is inoperative. Hence, emulation or simulation of specific equipment is needed to prove that the water ow glazing facade operates in accordance with specifications. In this work, functional tests are established to evaluate the thermal performance and operation of the equipment. Automation software and hardware platform are used to monitor thermal and comfort requirements and to expedite the commissioning process. The fulfilment of commissioning procedures for the project is recorded at the end of the construction phase.
