Buildings worldwide account for nearly 40% of global energy consumption. The biggest energy consumer in buildings is the Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) systems. HVAC also ranks top in terms of number of complaints by tenants. Maintaining HVAC systems in good conditions through early fault detection is thus a critical problem. The problem, however, is difficult since HVAC systems are large in scale, consisting of many coupling subsystems, building and equipment dependent, and… CONTINUE READING
