Energy performance prediction of thermoelectric ceiling radiant panels with a dedicated outdoor air system

This paper proposes a dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS) with thermoelectric module radiant cooling panels (TEM-RCP). The DOAS involves the concept of a decoupled system with a parallel sensible cooling unit. This concept implies decoupling of ventilation and air-conditioning functions. The DOAS treats latent loads from outside air intake as a 100 % OA ventilation system. Additionally, a parallel sensible cooling unit, such as ceiling radiant cooling panel (CRCP), generally removes sensible loads.
