Enhanced Demand Control Ventilation for High Performance Buildings
Mt Pleasant, SC 29464
|Category||Indoor environmental quality|
Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) refers to varying the breathing zone outdoor airflow to the
occupied spaces of a building based on the actual or estimated number of occupants and/or
ventilation requirements of the occupied zone. This course will review the history of ASHRAE
standards and the development of DCV. It will discuss the different DCV strategies. It will consider
the links between ASHRAE & LEED 2009 and the relationship between CO2, outdoor air ventilation
and IAQ/IEQ. It will also discuss enhanced DCV strategies including implementation of best
practices using airflow measurement technologies.
1. Understand the history of ASHRAE 62.1 and Demand Control Ventilation (DCV).
2. Compare DCV methods
3. Identify Links Between LEED 2009 Credits and DCV
4. Design and apply DCV strategies with CO2
5. Specify Enhanced DCV Strategies with Airflow Monitoring Equipment
