82. Comparison of Photovoltaic Module Performance Measurements
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/2/2006
Authors: A. Hunter Fanney, Mark W. Davis, Brian P Dougherty, D L King, W E Boyson, J A Kratochvil
Abstract: Computer simulation tools used to predict the energy production of photovoltaic systems are needed in order to make informed economic decisions. These tools require input parameters that characterize module performance under various operational and e ...

83. Cost-Effective Commissioning for Existing and Low Energy Buildings - A New IEA ECBCS Research Project
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 4/19/2006
Authors: Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti, Daniel Choiniere
Abstract: The benefits of commissioning are increasingly being recognized internationally. In 2004 and 2005, over 40 experts from 12 countries participated in two workshops to identify barriers to cost-effective building commissioning. These countries have a ...

84. Remotely Accessed Photovoltaic Power Experiment
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/21/2006
Authors: W J Hutzel, William M Healy
Abstract: A solar energy experiment that estimates the number of photovoltaic panels needed to provide supplemental power for a typical residence is described. The project is unique because it uses freely available on-line resources for collecting and analyzi ...

85. Relaxation Effects in Small Critical Nozzles
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 1/1/2006
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, C L Merkle, Michael R Moldover, John D Wright
Abstract: We computed the flow of four gases (He, N^d2^, CO^d2^, and SF^d^6) through a critical nozzle by augmenting traditional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with a rate equation that accounts for {tau}^drelax^, a species-dependent relaxation time that c ...

86. Fabrication of a Guarded-Hot-Plate Apparatus for Use Over an Extended Temperature Range and in a Controlled Gas Atmosphere
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/29/2005
Authors: Robert R Zarr, Daniel Robert Flynn, John W Hettenhouser, Nolan J Brandenburg, William M Healy
Abstract: This paper describes the fabrication of a guarded-hot-plate apparatus suitable for determining the steady-state thermal transmission properties of insulation specimens from 90 K to 900 K in a controlled gas atmosphere from 10^u-5^ kPa to 105 kPa. Th ...

87. High-Temperature Guarded Hot Plate Apparatus Optimal Locations of Circular Heaters
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/1/2005
Authors: Daniel Robert Flynn, William M Healy, Robert R Zarr
Abstract: The National Bureau of Standards (now the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)) pioneered the use of circular line-heat-sources in guarded hot plate (GHP) apparatus, the most common type of absolute apparatus for measurement of the t ...

88. Site Specific X-Ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy Using X-Ray Standing Waves
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/26/2005
Author: Joseph C Woicik
Abstract: The x-ray standing wave technique is an experimental method that can accurately determine the precise crystallographic positions of atoms within a crystalline unit cell. As we have seen in preceding chapters of this book, this unique ability arises ...

90. Ventilation Design and Performance in U.S. Office Buildings
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 4/30/2005
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, J Gorfain
Abstract: Building ventilation is a primary determinant of indoor air quality (IAQ) as it impacts contaminant concentrations and occupant comfort in terms of the perception of odor and irritation. However, relatively few measurements of office building ventila ...
