On a control policy that maintains indoor air quality in a variable-air-volume air-handling unit

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The air handling unit (AHU) in a variable air volume (VAV) heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) system consists of outside-air, return-air and exhaust-air dampers. The indoor air quality (IAQ) standards require a constant intake of outside air independent of the speed of the supply-fan in the duct of AHU. Using flow-conservation equations, a model for the AHU is derived. A control policy that maintains the IAQ in a VAV HVAC system where the flow across the exhaust-air damper is never reversed, is provided.
