BACnet is a data communication protocol for Building Automation and Control Networks. It is a standardised technology for building automation and supports a variety of specific physical network standards, which makes it ideal for use on all automation levels.
In any thermal heat exchange process, a mixture of two energy flows will result in a new stage or phase called the balance point. Here, a common temperature, humidity or enthalpy is reached.
Balancing of heating and cooling systems is performed to ensure that the correct amount of water is present at all consumption points. Balancing is carried out by building balancing valves into the system, thereby adding adjustable resistance.
BOD (Biochemical Oxygen Demand)
The quantity of oxygen consumed by aerobic microorganisms during the decomposition of organic matter in a water sample is defined as the Biochemical Oxygen Demand (BOD).
Consumers who live in areas with no district heating have to use their own boiler to produce central heating. A boiler installation has the following components: burner, nozzles, boiler casing, hot-water tank (integrated or separate) and a chimney.
