The effect of energy recovery on indoor climate, air quality and energy consumption using computer simulations
The main objectives of this thesis are to determine if the addition of an energy wheel in an HVAC system can improve the indoor air relative humidity (RH), and perceived air quality (PAQ), as well as reduce energy consumption. ...
Selection of the liquid desiccant in a run-around membrane energy exchanger
In this thesis, several possible liquid desiccants (aqueous solutions of LiCl, LiBr, MgCl2 and CaCl2) are investigated to find the most appropriate working fluid to be used in a run-around membrane energy exchanger (RAMEE). ...
Design and performance testing of counter-cross-flow run-around membrane energy exchanger system
In this study, a novel counter-cross-flow run-around membrane energy exchanger (RAMEE) system was designed and tested in the laboratory. The RAMEE system consists of two (2) counter-cross-flow Liquid-to-Air Membrane Energy ...
Design and performance testing of a novel ceiling panel for simultaneous heat and moisture transfer to moderate indoor temperature and relative humidity
An important aspect in the design of buildings is the comfort of the occupants inside the building. Although many factors can affect comfort, the factor of particular interest in this research is the indoor humidity level. ...
Run-around membrane energy exchanger performance and operational control strategies
A run-around membrane energy exchanger (RAMEE) is a novel energy exchanger that is capable of transferring both heat and moisture, which can significantly reduce the energy required to condition outdoor ventilation air. ...
