The Optimization of Control Parameters for VAV HVAC System Commissioning
MetadataShow full item record
One of the technical subjects in commissioning for HVAC system is to enhance control performance and time efficiency, while the tuning of the optimal parameters to control HVAC system takes much time and labor in particular. Therefore, we propose a kind of commissioning technique as follows. We identified the dynamic characteristics of components of an actual VAV HVAC system such as rooms, VAV dampers, two way valves and chilled water coils, and verified the behaviors of the models and choose the optimal control parameters on a personal computer. Then adopting them for the actual system, we verified the control performance. Through the procedure, we showed the possibility of off-site and off-line control parameter tuning to reduce the cost and time at on-site and in on-line using the measured data in a real HVAC system.
