101. Recommendations for Application of CO^d2^-Based Demand Controlled Ventilation Including Proposed Guidance for ASHRAE Standard 62 and California's Title 24
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/29/2003
Authors: Andrew Keith Persily, Jim Braun, Steven J Emmerich, Kevin Mercer, Tom Lawerence
Abstract: Carbon dioxide (CO2) based demand controlled ventilation (DCV) has been proposed and implemented for many years as a strategy for increasing energy efficiency by providing outdoor air ventilation rates based on actual occupancy rather than design occ ...

102. 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 ...

103. 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 ...

104. Residential Home Performance Contracting Round Robin Guidelines
Series: Grant/Contract Reports (NISTGCR)
Report Number: 14-976
Topic: High Performance Buildings
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 ...

105. 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 ...

106. Review of alternative cooling technologies
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/18/2013
Authors: S J Brown, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: This paper considers the alternative cooling technologies studied by Fisher et al. (1994) and assesses their current performance and market potential in reference to vapor compression technology. First, a taxonomy of cooling technologies based on th ...

108. Semiconductor Measurement Technology: Workshop on Mass Flow Measurement and Control for the Semiconductor Industry
Series: Special Publication (NIST SP)
Report Number: 400-101
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 2/1/2001
Authors: Robert F Berg, David S. Green, G E. Mattingly
Abstract: On 15-16 May 2000 at NIST, 45 scientists and engineers met to identify research and standards that will benefit users and manufacturers of mass flow controllers (MFCs) and related equipment. Most attendees represented companies closely associated wi ...

109. 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 ...

110. Simulation of the Impact of Commercial Building Envelope Airtightness on Building Energy Utilization
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/14/2007
Authors: Steven J Emmerich, Timothy P. McDowell, Wagdy Anis
Abstract: This paper presents a simulation study of the energy impact and cost-effectiveness of improving envelope airtightness in low-rise US commercial buildings. Despite common assumptions, measurements have shown that typical US commercial buildings are no ...
