Optimization and Analysis of HVAC Systems for a Multi-Functional Institutional Building

Abstract:

Article Preview

A multi-functional institutional building often has ventilation and comfort requirements that vary widely from zone to zone. When we commissioned the Reed McDonald building on the main campus of Texas A&M University (TAMU), efforts were made to control its environment according to the zone functions so that occupants can be satisfied with the comfort, and provided with a healthy and safe teaching and working environment. This paper presents a case study of the problems encountered and solutions implemented when recommissioning a multi-functional institutional building.
