Abstract:
The heating and cooling requirements after a shutdown period of the heating ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings are studied through an analytical model. The parameters affecting the preconditioning and storage loads which are of particular importance are identified. A mathematical computer model is developed to facilitate the analysis of the shutdown loads. Zones are grouped in terms of heavy, medium and light weight construction for the study. For a specified zone, the ratio of the inside surface area to the outside exposed area, A(s)/A(w), is an important parameter in predicting the additional loads resulting from system shutdown. The computer model is validated with known computer programs, namely DOE-2, BLAST, and DARE-P. A simplification to the model is proved to be adequate for the study. The zones with similar weight characteristics and the same A(s)/A(w) ratio, prove to have the same temperature profiles during the shutdown period, provided that they are at the same ambient conditions. Design guidance and procedures for predicting the preconditioning and storage loads using the models are developed. In addition, the use of DOE-2 and ASHRAE weighting factor method for shutdown load predictions is demonstrated for generic and custom applications.
