21. Annual Whole Building Energy Simulation of the NIST Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility Design
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1767
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 10/16/2012
Author: Joshua D Kneifel

22. Sealed Gravitational Capillary Viscometry of Dimethyl Ether and Two Next-Generation Refrigerants
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 117.014
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 9/26/2012
Authors: Dylan S. Cousins, Arno R Laesecke
Abstract: The viscosity of dimethyl ether (DME, C2H6O) and of the fluorinated propene isomers 2,3,3,3- tetrafluoroprop-1-ene (R1234yf, C3H2F4) and trans-1,3,3,3-tetrafluoropropene (R1234ze(E)) was measured in a combined temperature range from 242 K to 350 K ...

23. A versatile light-emitting-diode-based spectral response measurement system for photovoltaic device characterization
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 6/29/2012
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An absolute differential spectral response measurement system for solar cells is presented. The system couples an array of light emitting diodes (LEDs) with an optical waveguide to provide large area illumination. Two unique yet complementary measur ...

24. Effect of Diamond Nanolubricant on R134a Pool Boiling Heat Transfer
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 5/21/2012
Author: Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper quantifies the influence of diamond nanoparticles on the boiling performance of R134a/polyolester mixtures on a roughened, horizontal, flat surface. Nanofluids are liquids that contain dispersed nano-size particles. A lubricant based nan ...

25. CYCLE_D: NIST Vapor Compression Cycle Design Program Version 5.0
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 5/1/2012
Authors: J S Brown, Piotr A Domanski, Eric W Lemmon

26. Consumer Use of Dishwashers, Clothes Washers, and Dryers: Data Needs and Availability
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1696
Topic: Energy Conservation
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 ...

Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 1/11/2011
Authors: David L Jacobson, Richard Fu, Takeshi Shiomi, Ugur Pasaogullari, Joshua Preston, Shinichi Miyazaki, Yuichiro Tabuchi, Daniel S Hussey
Abstract: A fundamental experimental and numerical study of the water transport across a perfluorosulfonic acid (PFSA) membrane under a temperature gradient is presented. The water transport phenomenon was experimentally investigated through water flux mea ...

28. Measurement Challenges in Achieving Energy Monitoring Systems in Buildings
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1656
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 3/3/2010
Author: William M Healy
Abstract: The benefits of energy conserving approaches in buildings are often not apparent to building occupants because of the insufficient feedback provided regarding energy consumption. A review of the literature suggests that energy feedback devices can p ...

29. Life-Cycle Carbon and Cost Analysis of Energy Efficiency Measures in New Commercial Buildings
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 3/1/2010
Author: Joshua D Kneifel
Abstract: Building energy efficiency has become a top priority due to the recent energy price spikes and increasing concern regarding climate change. It is easier and less costly to increase energy efficiency in new buildings than in existing buildings, making ...

30. Micro Effects for Single Phase Pressure Drop In Microchannels
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 3/3/2008
Authors: Dong H. Han, Mark A Kedzierski
Abstract: This paper investigates the significance of several micro-effects that have been proposed to influence pressure drop measurements in microchannels. Pressure drop measurements were made for liquid flow within tubular microchannels nominally ranging i ...
