101. Results from Field Testing of Embedded Air Handling Unit and Variable Air Volume Box Fault Detection Tools
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 7365
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 10/30/2006
Author: J Schein
Abstract: Fault detection and diagnostic (FDD) methods that can detect common mechanical faults and control errors in air-handling units (AHUs) and variable-air-volume (VAV) boxes were developed and commercialized. The tools are sufficiently simple that they c ...

105. 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 ...
