Double Flow Controlled Mechanical Ventilation System & Thermal regulations

Studying a Controlled Mechanical Ventilation system for low energy consumption buildings


Double Flow CMV (heat exchanger, DC motors, regulation and RF control)

Air flow circuits (pressure loss...)

Data acquisition: temperature, pressure, air flow, hygrometry, rotation speed, power and consumption

Training activities:

Analysis and simulation of performance constraints imposed by thermal regulations

Comparison of mechanical ventilation systems and studying speed variation

Studying mechanical ventilation systems seeking to reach low energy consumption levels

Heat exchangers

Regulation (e.g. Bypass for night-time ventilation)

Studying the impact of ventilation on indoor air quality

Designing and dimensioning ventilation systems for the proposed case studies

Key points:

Use of the training system for the lab’s ventilation enabling real measurements

Ideal for experiments with heat exchangers

Emphasis on ventilation which is essential in the evolution of thermal solutions for buildings
