Instrumenting Buildings to Determine Retrofit Savings: Murphy's Law Strikes Again
MetadataShow full item record
Experiences with instrumentation, installation and maintenance of building energy metering systems are presented. The building energy metering was installed in a variety of locations in programs handled by the Energy Systems Laboratory at Texas A&M University. Metering typically includes monitoring for the whole-building electric load, chilled and hot water thermal loads and selected submetered electrical loads. The emphasis of the lessons learned was on the instrumentation used and installation and maintenance problems encountered during the course of the metering projects.
