31. Commissioning on HVAC Systems for Improved Energy Performance: IEA Annex 40 Update
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/18/2004
Author: Natascha Sylvia Milesi-Ferretti
Abstract: The Energy Conservation in Building and Community Systems program of the International Energy Agency has set up Annex 40, a research working group on Commissioning of Building HVAC Systems for Improved Energy Performance. The objective of Annex 40 i ...

32. Comparing Methods for Determining Carbon Dioxide Emissions from Stationary Sources
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: Rodney A Bryant, Matthew F Bundy, Ruowen Zong
Abstract: The largest source of carbon dioxide emissions is fossil fuel combustion. Since 1990, more than 90% of carbon dioxide emissions within the United States have come from fossil fuel combustion. Stationary sources such as power plants and industrial ...

33. Comparison of Five Natural Gas Equations of State Used for Flow and Energy Measurement
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/14/2009
Authors: Aaron N Johnson, William Johansen
Abstract: Measurements of the flow and the energy content of natural gas rely on equations of state to compute four thermodynamic properties: 1) compressibility factor; 2) critical flow factor; 3) speed of sound; and 4)isentropic exponent. We compare these com ...

34. Comparison of Photovoltaic Module Performance Measurements
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 5/2/2006
Authors: Arthur 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 ...

35. Condensed Matter Astrophysics A Prescription for Determining the Species-Specific Composition and Quantity of Interstellar Dust using X-rays
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 9/10/2009
Authors: Bruce D Ravel, Julia C. Lee, Jingen Xiang, Jeffrey Kortright, Kathryn Flanagan
Abstract: We present a new technique for determining the quantity and composition of dust in astrophysical environments using < 6 keV X-rays. We argue that high resolution X-ray spectra as enabled by the Chandra and XMM-Newton gratings should be considered ...

36. 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 ...

37. Control of Flow Direction in Microfluidic Devices with Polyelectrolyte Multilayers
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 12/1/2000
Authors: S L. Barker, David J Ross, Michael J Tarlov, Michael Gaitan, Laurie E Locascio
Abstract: Electroosmotic flow (EOF) is commonly utilized in microfluidics. Because the direction of the EOF can be determined by the substrate surface charge, control of the surface chemical state offers the potential, in addition to voltage control, to direct ...

38. 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 ...

39. Cost-effectiveness, Carbon Emissions, and Carbon Tax Implications of Energy Efficiency Measures in New Commercial Buildings.
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 11/1/2009
Authors: Joshua D Kneifel, Barbara C. Lippiatt
Abstract: Building energy efficiency has become a top priority due to the recent energy price spikes and increasing concern regarding climate change. New buildings are the easiest and least costly in which to increase energy efficiency, making new construction ...

40. Desorption Electro-Flow Focusing Ionization of Explosives and Narcotics for Ambient Pressure Mass
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 8/6/2013
Authors: Thomas P Forbes, Timothy M Brewer, John G Gillen
Abstract: Desorption electro-flow focusing ionization (DEFFI), a desorption-based ambient ion source, was developed and evaluated as a possible source for field deployable ambient pressure mass spectrometry (APMS). DEFFI, based on an electro-flow focusing syst ...
