The paper describes a component-based dynamic simulation of a variable air volume (VAV) air conditioning system. The model is based closely on the design of one floor of a real commercial office building in London. The model includes an air handling unit and a duct system incorporating pressure independent VAV boxes. The paper describes the simulation, environment used to test control systems and to develop fault; detection and diagnosis procedures and presents results of simulations that illustrate how the simulation can be used to study the interactions between control loops.
