An Integrated Air Handling Unit System for Large Commercial Buildings
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents an integrated air handling unit system (OAHU) for large commercial buildings. The system introduces outside air into the interior section and circulates the return air to the exterior section. Detailed analytical models are developed to compare the energy performance and indoor air quality between the OAHU and conventional AHU systems (single AHU). The OAHU uses significantly less energy than the conventional system in both winter and summer. The OAHU also provides better indoor air quality for the interior zone.
