New codes and energy regulations have changed the standard for packaged rooftop unit construction. High performance buildings that are smaller in size and/or consist of one level often sacrifice energy efficiency and comfort. One significant innovation is the use of Variable Air Volume (VAV) systems in smaller rooftop units to meet today’s aggressive energy strategies and provides a high level of comfort. This seminar provides an in-depth look at five HVAC systems designed for high performance environments, and uses an example prototype office building configured to simulate conditions in four different climate zones to demonstrate system performance.

Description

A constant flow system is the simplest chilled water design to operate. Constant speed pumps provide a fixed quantity of water to the system at all times, controlled by 3-way valve control at the air handler coils. At low load building operation, the chilled water flow is by-passed around these coils. This seminar discusses the benefits and disadvantages of a constant flow design, comparing various chilled water supply temperatures and return chilled water options. The impact of energy use of these options will be demonstrated.

Designers often think that determining comfort conditions is as easy as using 75°F and 50% RH for design conditions. However, if you are doing a LEED® analysis the ASHRAE 55 Standard must be used to define comfort conditions.
