Project

Performance of innovative decentralized ventilation for residences

Location

Greater Copenhagen area

The aim of the project is to analyze data from online indoor climate monitoring of test buildings equipped with two different types of novel decentralized ventilation systems.

The analysis will focus on indoor environmental conditions, functionality of algorithms for demand controlled ventilation and energy use. The ventilation systems as well as the online control and monitoring concept have been developed within the RoomVent-Solutions project supported by the Danish Energy Agency (EUDP).

Project will be divided into several parts:

Part 1: The project uses indoor climate sensors in every room of each apartment. The sensors measure temperature, humidity, noise and CO2. You would analyse the real data from apartments to determine the fresh airflow rates, the typical occupancy schedule, the amount of water vapour produced and the typical times that occupant open the windows. You would do this in Excel or a similar tool, and the results would provide realistic input for simulations.

Part 2: The project requires simulations of the apartments. You would use architectural drawings, consultancy reports and photos to build up the simulations in IDA-ICE or a similar software. The results from Part 1 would serve as input for occupancy, vapour, infiltration, etc. The project partners would provide performance data for the new installations. You would test the simulations with several control strategies.

Part 3: The project team has programmed control strategies into the ventilation systems. The systems would be ready for installation and testing in building 121B at DTU. You would observe the system and measure its performance to see if it works before we implement the control strategies in the actual buildings.

Part 4: If time permits, you would analyse the data from the real installations, which would include power consumption, temperatures, pressures and efficiencies as well as the indoor climate data.

Requirements

Knowledege of programs for data analysis - Matlab, R, advanced MS Excel, knowledge of IDA ICE
