By utilizing a “demand-based” controls approach and the communication means provided by a today’s Building Automation System it is easily possible to operate the Air Handling Units – especially their fans – e.g. in an office building in a very energy efficient way.  This integrated approach reduces the fan power

consumption substantially compared to traditional controls approaches and also compared to the operating values thought necessary during the design phase.

This will be further substantiated by comparing theoretical fan power consumptions with measured data from a recently constructed office building and that only minimal additional effort by a building automation specialist is necessary to realize such a highly energy efficient solution.

The webinar also finally shows, that such a “demand based” controls approach goes beyond the energy performance classification as defined in the EN15232-1:2017 and surpasses the energy savings of its “A-class” definition for flow control in a ventilation system by far.
