A Novel Procedure to Determine Optimal Air Static Pressure Set-points and Reset Schedules in VAV Air Handling Units
MetadataShow full item record
Air static pressure set-point or schedule for VAV AHLJ systems is one of the most crucial operational parameters for satisfy lug the building load, maintaining the room comfort level and saving energy costs. This paper presents a novel procedure and method, which can be applied to determine the optimal air static pressure set-point for VAV AHUs with both stand-alone controllers and DDC controllers. This procedure provides a simple, fast and a non-intrusive way to obtain the optimal or improved operational schedules without interrupting normal operation of the systems and without detailed simulation. An application example is also presented in this paper.
