air change rate

A new control algorithm for the measurement of variable air change rates.

A new algorithm for the continuous measurement of variable air change rates with tracer gases will be presented. It differs from the constant concentration method by allowing the concentration level to vary according to the air change rate. Also the mixing process of tracer gas within the room under investigation is considered and limited measurement ranges and injection rates of the tracer gas equipment can be accounted for. The new algorithm has a number of advantages, such as quick response to variations in the air change rate and reduced tracer gas consumption.
