How to Write the Owner’s Project Requirements (OPR) and Basis of Design (BOD) for Lighting and Advanced Lighting Controls
Tuesday, February 19, 2019, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
San Francisco – Pacific Energy Center

Tuesday, February 19, 2019, 1:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Internet as simulcast

Participants will learn how to develop and write two important lighting and controls documents, the Owner's Project Requirements (OPR) and the Basis Of Design (BOD), to provide a basis for an efficient and maintainable system. A sample project will be presented to demonstrate best practices, and will be followed through subsequent lighting controls classes, including How to Prepare a Control Intent Narrative (CIN) and Sequence of Operations (SOO), 0-10V vs DALI Dimming and a hands-on workshop.

How to Prepare a Control Intent Narrative (CIN) and Sequence of Operations (SOO) for Advanced Lighting Controls
Wednesday, February 20, 2018, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
San Francisco – Pacific Energy Center
http://usi.pge.com/event-details?EventID=20260
Wednesday, February 20, 2018, 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Internet as simulcast
http://usi.pge.com/event-details?EventID=20267
Participants will learn how to create a Control Intent Narrative (CIN) that conveys basic lighting controls operations in a narrative form, and a Sequence of Operations (SOO) that describes programing requirements necessary for creating that functionality. The SOO establishes crucial operating parameters concerning occupancy, scheduling and response to daylighting to determine setpoints for the lighting control system, and improves end user acceptance testing. The sample project introduced in the OPR/BOD class will serve as an example to demonstrate best practices.

0-10V vs DALI Dimming – Choosing the Right Controls for Your Project
Thu April 11, 2019, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm
San Francisco – Pacific Energy Center
http://usi.pge.com/event-details?EventID=20474
This class provides an in depth look at the features of both 0-10V dimming and DALI dimming, and their appropriate applications. The instructor will address code compliance, product compatibility and wiring challenges using these controls types. Students will handle, wire and operate both 0-10V and DALI dimming products, as well as show how to specify and design with each type of controls. The class compares the issues and operation associated with each dimming control system.

Advanced Lighting Control Systems: Hands-on Workshop
Wed May 1, 2019, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
San Francisco – Pacific Energy Center
http://usi.pge.com/event-details?EventID=20477
This course introduces four Advanced Lighting Control Systems to the participants via collaborative activities. The demonstrations include wired and wireless, 0-10 volt dimming, single and multi-function sensors as well as room-based and network based control systems. Manufacturers will provide demonstrations, exercises, and table-top products in addition to the class.
