    1. 1. HVAC Basics Jitendra Jha HVAC – Heating, Ventilation, Air-conditioning
    2. 2. HVAC Energy Consumption 2 Cooling 642 kWh/m2 Heating 623 kWh/m2 Electricity 414 kWh/m2 Annual Energy Use >60% A lab building on campus 32% DOE numbers
    3. 3. HVAC 3 HVAC – Heating, Ventilation, Air-conditioning Temperature Humidity Pressure Ventilation 68°F (20°C) and 75°F (25°C) 30% relative humidity (RH) and 60% RH A slightly positive pressure to reduce outside air infiltration. Rooms typically have several complete air changes per hour Diagram of mechanical system on the blackboard
    4. 4. Where? 4 Mechanical Room: Boilers, chillers, pumps, heat exchangers… Air Handling Units (AHUs): heat, cool, humidify, dehumidify, ventilate, filter and distribute the air. Room Controls: thermostats and Variable Air Volume (VAV) boxes
    5. 5. In the mechanical room 5 Boiler Chiller
    6. 6. Heating 6 Also to radiators, terminal reheat, domestic hot water.
    7. 7. Heating 7
    8. 8. Cooling 8
    9. 9. AHU – Air Handling Unit 9 Return air Exhaust air Outside air Supply air Where does air come from and go to?
    10. 10. AHU 10 Damper Heating/Cooling Coil Fan Sensor Filter What’s in an AHU?
    11. 11. AHU - Economizer 11 Economizer mode: Using outside air for cooling rather than mechanical cooling. Linked Minimum in summer More outside air in winter 55°F
    12. 12. AHU – Heating and Cooling 12 dehumidification 55°F
    13. 13. Humidification 13 Why before the cooling coil?
    14. 14. VAV 14 Two variables – Temperature & Air Volumedamper The box you can see in the hallway. IF temperature too high First reduce reheat till fully closed Then increase air volume IF temperature too low First reduce air volume till minimum Then start reheat
    15. 15. Winter 15 Outside Return Mixed
    16. 16. Summer 16 Outside Return MixedCooled and dehumidified
    17. 17. 17 The Real World Any difference? Anything wrong? 52°F
    18. 18. 18 The Real World 52°F Chilled water is still used when outside air is far below 52F Temperature increased after humidification. Sensor error. Separate control caused counteraction.
    19. 19. What we have learned? 19 What’s in the mechanical rooms. What happens in air handling unit. How VAV works. What can happen in the real world. The system that ensures the thermal comfort.
