Multiparameter Demand-Controlled Ventilation

August 2009
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Aug2009, Vol. 81 Issue 8, p24
The article focuses on the results of the restrictions by centralized facility-monitoring system able to sense multiple points and multiparameter demand-controlled ventilation (Mp DCV) on both human and non-human pollutants. It states that even if CO2-driven DCV provide chances for energy savings and carbon-footprint decrease, it has not seen the possibilities. It notes that it is due to the concerns with the non-human pollutants, control accuracy, and the calibration and maintenance. INSET: Ventilation Through Time.
