In this demo abstract, we describe an occupancy-based control (OBC) system under development that has potential to save 18% of the energy use on average in office buildings having single-duct variable-air-volume (VAV) heating, ventilating and air-conditioning systems. The OBC system uses the measured number of occupants to control the airflow rate through the VAV box during times when no heating or cooling is called for by the zone thermostat. It can be retrofit on the terminal boxes in… CONTINUE READING
