The cooling potential of earth-air heat exchangers for domestic buildings in a desert climate
A theoretical model of an earth–air heat exchanger (EAHE) isdeveloped for predicting the outlet air temperature and cooling potential of these devices in a hot, arid climate. The model is validated against other published ...
Energy aspects of HVAC system configurations - problem definition and test cases
(International Journal of Heating, Ventilation, Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Research, 2006-09-01)
HVAC system optimization for energy management by evolutionary programming
Energy management of heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems is a primary concern in building projects, since the energy consumption in electricity has the highest percentage in HVAC among all building ...
HVAC system configurations: an energy aspect
(HVAC&R Research, 2006)
This paper studies the energy implications of HVAC system configuration by analysing energy balance and psychrometrics of typical and innovative systems. Three criteria have been established: (1) the ability to minimize ...
Model-based control of renewable energy systems in buildings
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Inc., 2006)
The paper describes a research project concerned with the problem of supervisory control of systems which combine a range of heat sources with active and passive thermal storage. The work is based around a prototype building ...
