Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Sep2008, Vol. 80 Issue 9, p36
The article presents a review on the Standard 62.1's requirements for dynamic reset and outlines of methods on Demand Control Ventilation (DCV). It aims to aid engineering professionals in the design and application of HVAC systems by providing a reliable objective and technological information in a non-commercial format. Moreover, it claims that DCV can reduce the cost of operating an HVAC system, particularly where contaminants result primarily form people and occupancy varies greatly.
