Demand controlled ventilation - an application to auditoria.

This paper is based on field measurements in auditoria which were carried out in Norway and in Switzerland. In both cases carbon dioxide (CO2) was chosen as the relevant indicator to establish ventilation demand.

Demand controlled ventilation.

The IEA Annex 18 Demand Controlled Ventilation Systems (DCV-Systems) with 9 participants is midway through its work program. Reviews are indicating possible energy savings in the range of 8%-40% both in experiments and in theoretical studies. Most of the case studies will start this autumn with sensor tests, test room studies, and trials in occupied spaces. The conditions in dwellings and offices with various ventilating systems will be simulated in the test rooms. Almost 30 occupied buildings will be involved in tests in dwellings, offices,auditoria and schools.
