31. Sensitivity Analysis of Installation Faults on Heat Pump Performance
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1848
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/8/2014
Authors: Piotr A Domanski, Hugh Henderson, William V Payne
Abstract: Numerous studies and surveys indicated that typically-installed HVAC equipment operates inefficiently and wastes considerable energy due to different installation errors (faults), e.g., improper refrigerant charge, incorrect airflow, oversized eq ...

33. Elucidating the Effects of Adsorbent Flexibility on Fluid Adsorption Using Simple Models and Flat-Histogram Sampling Methods
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/24/2014
Authors: Vincent K Shen, Daniel W Siderius
Abstract: Using flat-histogram Monte Carlo methods, we investigate the adsorptive behavior of the square-well fluid in two simple slit-pore- like models intended to capture fundamental characteristics of flexible adsorbent materials. The models require thermo ...

34. Power Supply Issues for Wireless Sensor Networks: A Review
Topic: High Performance Buildings
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 ...

35. Constant pressure primary flow standard for gas flows from 0.01 cm^u3^/min to 100 cm^u3^/min (10^u-8^ mol/s to 10^u-5^ mol/s)
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/17/2013
Authors: Robert F Berg, Gooding Timothy, Robert Edward Vest
Abstract: We describe a flow meter for gas flows in the range from 0.01 sccm to 100 sccm with a relative standard uncertainty of 0.03 % at 1 sccm. (1 sccm ≈ 1 cm3/min of an ideal gas at 101325 Pa and 0 C ≈ 0.7 mol/s.) The flow meter calibrates a se ...

36. Application of a Natural Ventilation System Design Tool To A School Building
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 11/8/2013
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, William S Dols, Brian J Polidoro
Abstract: A software tool to aid in the design of natural ventilation systems has recently been udpated. This update implements a general method for sizing of natural ventilation components, which allows direct consideration of stack and wind-driven airflow. T ...

37. A THERMODYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF REFRIGERANTS: PERFORMANCE LIMITS OF THE VAPOR COMPRESSION CYCLE
Topic: High Performance Buildings
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 ...

38. Fermion Mediated Interactions Between Ultracold Bosons
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 6/16/2013
Authors: Ian B Spielman, Subhadeep De
Abstract: We describe a new method for creating spin-dependent long-range interactions between atomic ultra-cold neutral bosons in an optical lattice. In this proposal, the bosonic system is immersed in a spin polarized degenerate Fermi gas. We first show that ...
