ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the recommendations of the Air Movement and Control Association International Inc. (AMCA) Publication 201 on how to avoid System Effect. It is stated that the System Effect is the effect of the fan performance when ducting on the outlet needs to be designed such that the asymmetrical flow profile from the fan is allowed to diffuse and approach fully developed flow. It suggests that fan users should contact the manufacturer to determine the right speed of the fan.
