Electrical Section


SIMUGAS TM  is a gas furnace simulator and troubleshooting training system, designed for HVAC students and service technicians. The simulator is an invaluable tool for teaching students the basics of gas furnace operation and troubleshooting, as well as improving the service skills of experienced technicians.

SIMUGAS simulates two generic versions of gas furnaces that a service technician would commonly encounter in the field. They include a high-efficiency condensing furnace, using hot-surface ignition (HSI), and a standard-efficiency furnace, using standing pilot ignition. Indoor and outdoor temperatures, room thermostat, burner air-shutters, fan limit, high limit, heat anticipator, and manifold pressure are all adjustable. Up to 30 different mechanical and electrical faults may be inserted into the simulator. The first 20 faults are shown below.
