With rising disposable income and opulent lifestyle, all of us want to achieve quality indoor environment and higher level of energy efficiency by automating and controlling the building systems. In 1970s, when the energy prices began to rise Variable Air Volume System (abbreviated as VAV system) came into picture. VAV system supplies conditioned air with the volume varying as per the heat loss or gain in the occupied spaces, without any change in the temperature.
VAV system is a type of heating, ventilating and air-conditioning system. The systems which supply constant airflow at variable temperature range are called as constant air volume (abbreviated as CAV) systems. Unlike CAV systems, VAV systems vary the airflow at a constant temperature. VAV systems have numerous advantages over constant-volume systems which include precise temperature control, lower energy consumption by system fans, reduced compressor wear, less fan noise and increased dehumidification. In food processing and packaging systems, precise temperature control have great influence over product quality. Strict temperature controlling positively impacts process efficiency and energy consumption, ultimately resulting in lower cost of operation. VAV systems can help in savings up to 20% of the overall energy expenses.
The design of high performing VAV systems is fraught with challenges including design coordination mechanical budgets, fee structures, complexity, design schedules, diligence in test and balance procedures, construction execution, and execution of the controls and performance of the building operators. One of the major challenge is providing adequate temperature control for multiple zones with different environmental conditions, such as an office on the glass perimeter of a building versus an interior office down the hall. Dual duct systems provide cool air in one duct and warm air in a second duct to provide an appropriate temperature of mixed supply air for any zone. An extra duct, however, is cumbersome and expensive. Reheating the air from a single duct, using electric or hot water heating, is often a more cost-effective solution.
