11. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 5/30/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Andrew M. Shore, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance-mode absolute differential spectral response measurement system based on a light emitting diode (LED) array is described. The LEDs are coupled to an integrating sphere whose output irradiance is uniform to better than 2 % over an ar ...

12. Residential Home Performance Contracting Round Robin Guidelines
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Report Number: 14-976
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 4/17/2014
Authors: Michael Lubliner, Rick Kunkle, David Hales, Melinda Spencer
Abstract: These guidelines describe the important considerations for planning, conducting, analyzing, and disseminating the results of a Home Performance Contactor (HPC) round robin study of a specific aspect of the HPC industry services. The round robin study ...

13. Normalized Performance Parameters for a Residential Heat Pump in the Cooling Mode with Single Faults Imposed
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: William V Payne, Jin Min Cho, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: The performance of a residential split heat pump in the cooling mode operating under nine faults was described using normalized performance parameters determined from a ratio of the faulty value to the no-fault value obtained from heat pump tests in ...

14. Power Supply Issues for Wireless Sensor Networks: A Review
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 3/1/2014
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have enabled numerous embedded wireless applications in different areas such as military/battlefield, environmental monitoring, and intelligent building systems. They consist of a large number of nodes that need to ope ...

Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 10/24/2013
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, J S Brown, Janusz Wojtusiak, Mark O McLinden
Abstract: This paper explores the thermodynamic performance limits of the vapor compression cycle. In particular, we apply evolutionary algorithms to explore the performance of thousands of hypothetical refrigerants defined by their thermodynamic parameter ...

16. Energy Performance of the NIST Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility relative to a Maryland Code- Compliant Design
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1166
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 9/30/2013
Author: Joshua D Kneifel
Abstract: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) received funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) to construct a Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility (NZERTF). The initial goal of the NZERTF is to demonstra ...

17. Evaluating Feedback Systems for Residential Building Energy Monitoring
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 8/10/2013
Authors: Wenqi Guo, Tania Ullah, MengChu Zhou
Abstract: Rising global energy demand, increasing electricity prices, and the limitation of natural resources have led to increased interest in energy monitoring of residential buildings. Much research has been done to examine the effect of energy use feedback ...

18. Benefits and Costs of Energy Standard Adoption in New Commercial Buildings: National Summary
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 1161
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 6/10/2013
Author: Joshua D Kneifel

19. Bubble Point Measurements of Eight Binary Mixtures for Organic Rankine Cycle Applications
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 5/24/2013
Authors: Stephanie L Outcalt, Eric W Lemmon
Abstract: The bubble point pressures of two compositions of each of eight binary mixtures have been measured over a temperature range of 270 K to 380 K. Six of the mixtures included pentane, which was mixed with 1,1,1,3,3-pentafluoropropane (R-245fa); methyl ...
