Model-Based Commissioning Methodology for Simple Duct System
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents how a simulation model is applied on air leakage and pressure distribution in a duct system and how it is utilized for duct system commissioning on the three categories below. It focuses on a duct system, which participates in room pressure differential control in higher functional facilities such as a pharmaceutical factory. For an air distribution system with room pressure control, an FTA (Fault Tree Analysis) analyses the main functional fault factors, which are classified into three categories. (I) Excessive air leakage from the duct system (II) Excessive pressure loss of the duct system. (III) The VAV characteristic does not match the characteristic of the duct system.
