(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Inc., 2002)
Model-based control of renewable energy systems in buildings
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Inc., 2006)
The paper describes a research project concerned with the problem of supervisory control of systems which combine a range of heat sources with active and passive thermal storage. The work is based around a prototype building ...
Optimization of MVAC systems for energy management by evolutionary algorithm
Energy management in existing building services installations is an essential focus of contemporary facilities management. The subway company that is one of the major utilities services in Hong Kong Special Administrative ...
Performance optimization of polymeric collectors by means of dynamic simulation and sensitivity analysis
The contribution analyses the performance compromise necessary to avoid high stagnation temperatures in polymeric solar collectors.
HVAC system configurations: an energy aspect
(HVAC&R Research, 2006)
This paper studies the energy implications of HVAC system configuration by analysing energy balance and psychrometrics of typical and innovative systems. Three criteria have been established: (1) the ability to minimize ...
