DEST Software to Analyze System Zoning and Energy Consumption in Air Conditioning Systems
MetadataShow full item record
This paper reports on a study on how to appropriately divide system zoning by using DeST software to calculate the basis dynamic temperature and load of all rooms in an office building. Influent factors of weather conditions, building envelope conditions and building structure were analyzed in this simulation. We found that load was the fundamental factor involved in system zoning. Surplus heat recovery in inner zone is also recommended to maintain inner zone comfort and save energy.
