Project Goals
  


Reasons For Building the Proof of Concept Project :


This project is intended to answer questions from the industry. Central among the questions to be answered are: condensation, capacity, operating energy, and comfort. The following bulleted items constitute what is expected as outcome from the project.

- Overcome/answer the negative perception of the industry.

- Demonstrate that the space sensible and latent loads can be decoupled using DOAS.

- Prove that condensation damage need never occur, even in the leaky non-ideal early 1900 building space used for the project.

- Provide first hand thermal comfort experience working in a radiant cooling field.

- Demonstrate that the sensible load of the space can be met with radiant panels when applied in parallel with a DOAS.

- Demonstrate the controls used for the integrated systems.

- Provide an educational resource for the PSU-UP office of physical plant, the students in the College of Engineering and the College of Arts and Architecture, the consulting engineers responsible for the next PSU building currently on the design table, and consulting engineers all across America.

- Provide a basis for comparison of the dirt associated with this system and conventional all air VAV systems.

- Provide a basis for comparison of the noise associated with this system and conventional all air VAV systems.

- Provide a basis for comparison of the maintenance and operation costs associated with this system and conventional all air VAV systems.
