1. Evaluating the Initial Field Performance of HVAC-Cx for Air Handling Units
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1924
Published: 8/17/2016
Authors: Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Michael A Galler, Steven T Bushby
Abstract: Automated commissioning tools facilitate the ongoing commissioning process to improve occupant comfort, ensure the persistence of correct system operation, and reduce energy consumption. These tools decrease the time and the skill level required ...

2. Evaluating the Performance of DABO and HVAC-Cx Commissioning Tools using the Virtual Cybernetic Building Testbed
Published: 10/1/2015
Authors: Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Michael A Galler, Steven T Bushby, Daniel Choiniere
Abstract: Automated commissioning tools are designed to facilitate the commissioning process, decreasing the amount of time and the skill level required to carry out necessary quality assurance measures. As a result, they enable more thorough testing of buildi ...

3. Programmers Guide to the Air-Handling Unit Performance Assessment Rule DLL
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7960
Published: 9/26/2013
Author: Michael A Galler
Abstract: The AHU Performance Assessment Rules (APAR) were developed in 2001 and have been implemented as part of a limited number of Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) tools. While a list of the rules has been widely available, an implementation of them ...

4. Influence of Particle Size Distributions on Yield Stress and Viscosity of Cement-Fly Ash Pastes
Published: 2/1/2012
Authors: Dale P Bentz, Chiara F Ferraris, Michael A Galler, John Guynn, Andrew Hansen
Abstract: The rheological properties of blended cement-based materials depend strongly on mixture proportions and the characteristics of the components, such as cement and fly ash. In this study, design of experiments is used to investigate the influence of t ...

5. Measuring Standby Power Use in the DOE Clothes Washers, Clothes Dryers and Dishwashers Test Procedures
Published: 11/1/2011
Authors: Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Michael A Galler, Farhad Omar
Abstract: This paper discusses the issue of standby power in the Department of Energy‰s (DOE) residential appliance test procedures. Section 1 introduces DOE‰s legislative mandate, briefly discusses the rise of standby power in white products, and gives a sen ...

6. Using the BACnet Data Source v1.7
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7825
Published: 10/20/2011
Author: Michael A Galler
Abstract: The BACnet Data Source (BDS) was developed to be used as a component of the Virtual Cybernetic Building Testbed (VCBT) (1), in conjunction with work on various Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) (2) and Building Commissioning (Cx) tools. The ...

7. Consumer Use of Dishwashers, Clothes Washers, and Dryers: Data Needs and Availability
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1696
Published: 3/21/2011
Authors: Christopher Iglehart, Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Michael A Galler
Abstract: NIST provides technical support to the DOE in developing test procedures for a variety of residential appliances. As part of this process, DOE seeks representative consumer use data to establish test procedures that are representative of real world ...

8. The Virtual Cybernetic Building Testbed-A Building Emulator
Published: 7/16/2009
Authors: Steven T Bushby, Michael A Galler, Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Cheol D. Park
Abstract: Building emulators couple computer simulations to real control hardware, creating a useful tool for studying building control system performance. The National Institute of Standards and Technology's Virtual Cybernetic Building Testbed (VCBT) is a ...
