Controlled Natural Ventilation (CNV) is one of the potential most effective passive cooling technique to reduce cooling needs of buildings in temperate-hot climate zones.
Characterising Window Opening Behaviour of Occupants Using Machine Learning Models | 2018 | English | 6 pp
Occupants control indoor environments to meet their individual needs for comfort.
Balanced ventilation units are well known to provide a sufficient amount of fresh air in residential buildings in a controlled way, without relying on ever-changing naturally driven forces.
Free cooling of low energy buildings with ground source heat pump system and bidirectional ventilation | 2018 | English | 10 pp
Earlier field measurements in Low Energy Buildings have shown that excess temperatures can easily occur during summertime in well-insulated houses, also in northern part of Europe.
Ventilative cooling and improved indoor air quality through the application of engineered Earth Tube systems, in a Canadian climate | 2018 | English | 14 pp
This paper will present the context and application of earth tube systems for the provision of ventilative cooling and general make-up air in the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) sector of the built environment; with a focus on cas
Numerical Assessment of the Influence of Heat Loads on the Performance of Temperature-Controlled Airflow in an Operating Room | 2018 | English | 8 pp
Airborne bacteria-carrying particles (BCPs) in an operating room (OR) can cause post-operative infections in the patients. The ventilation system in the OR is crucial in removing or diluting airborne BCPs.
Demand Control Ventilation strategy resilience is analysed through the envelope leakage distribution.
This paper presents a new concept of ventilation system for residential building, based on a hybrid ventilation system, mainly control by weather conditions and IAQ sensors to optimize exhaust airflows rates, for the purpose of improving global bu
Short-term mechanical ventilation of air-conditioned residential buildings: case study and general design framework | 2018 | English | 10 pp
Many studies reported that there were insufficient ventilation and excessive CO2 concentration in air-conditioned residential buildings, but few solutions were provided.
The recent development of affordable and quite accurate temperature sensors and Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) sensors has led to a growing interest in continuous indoor climate monitoring.
Simulation of control strategies for ventilation systems in commercial buildings | 2018 | English | 10 pp
By the end of 2020 all newly constructed buildings have to be nearly zero energy buildings (nZEB). In school and office buildings the ventilation system has a large contribution to the total energy use.
Control of Distributed Cooling and Ventilation Systems in Hot and Humid Climates | 2018 | English | 10 pp
In the research project 3for2 Beyond Efficiency, low-exergy distributed cooling and ventilation systems for application in the tropics are designed and tested in a demonstrator building in Singapore.
Measured and Simulated Energy Savings and Comfort Improvement of a Smart Residential Ventilation Control Strategy: Preliminary Results for North America and Europe | 2018 | English | 11 pp
Mechanical ventilation is vital in modern homes to insure adequate indoor air quality.
Assessing the energy use and IAQ of various HVAC systems during the early design stage | 2018 | English | 6 pp
The early design stage of a building is decisive for describing the concept of the HVAC system. Designers and practitioners can adjust and optimize the design during this stage as it provides them with enough resilience to adapt new changes.
Night-time ventilation is a natural cooling technology, in which cold ambient air is used to cool indoor spaces. This literature review analyses how recent studies have defined the effectiveness or efficiency of night-time ventilation.
