A Building schedule is a combination of a schedule duration and desired temperatures. It can be predefined for a week and modified during the week to accommodate a change the building wants to implement in the schedule. Once set up, the system level device (AHU/RTU) which is controlled by the CCU, supplies the required to meet the set desired temperatures only during the set schedule duration which is also known as the setpoint mode. Post-building schedule duration, the system level device (AHU/RTU) would relax and move to the setback mode, where usually the desired temperatures are much more relaxed than the scheduled duration or setpoint mode.
Note: Once a building schedule is set all the zones in the building would start following the building schedule, unless a zone schedule is set for zones particularly.
