Hybrid ventilation systems combine the superior properties of natural and mechanical ventilation systems to reduce energy consumption. In this study, hybrid ventilation simulations were performed for several cities in Turkey, which have different climate conditions. Matlab/Simulink was utilized to perform the simulations. The results of these simulations were compared with that of regular air conditioning units in terms of energy consumption. A hybrid ventilation system which shows the general behaviour of a fan-assisted natural ventilation system with temperature-based control and which provides both heating and cooling, is shown to be effective for four cities in Turkey that have different climate conditions. Results showed potential savings of around 25-30% when compared to a regular AC system.


Sound power level prediction in ducted heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems
Yayladere, Cemil; Çalışkan, Mehmet; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2014)
The aim of this study is to develop user friendly software to predict and analyze noise levels in enclosed spaces due to Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (HVAC) System. Sound sources and transmission mechanisms are investigated by the prediction formulae and data originated from research studies and standards. For the analysis portion of the software, through the implementation of HVAC elements, sound power levels at the ventilation system outlet are obtained. General software structure is explaine...
Breathing features assessment of porous wall units in relation to indoor air quality
Yüncü, Başak; Tavukçuoğlu, Ayşe; Saltık, Emine Nevin (2014-09-24)
Traditional building technologies establishing highly-breathing multi-layered wall systems provide healthy indoor environment and energy efficiency in buildings due to the use of lightweight, porous, water vapour permeable and thermal resistive building materials. The breathing performance of traditional buildings and materials that contribute to the healthy indoor conditions and air quality are needed to be investigated in detail. That knowledge on breathing performance has also vital importance for the im...

A thermal energy storage unit designed to be used in a solid particle concentrated solar energy system is analyzed with the help of ANSYS Fluent 17.0. Hydrodynamics of the bubbling fluidized sand bed of 0.28 m × 1 m × 0.025 m dimensions to be used as a direct contact heat exchanger is modeled and validated. Geldart B-type particles with diameter of 275 micrometers and density of 2500 kg/m3 are used in modeling of bubbling fluidized sand bed. A Syamlal−O'Brien drag model with restitution coefficient of 0.99 ...
Numerical comparison and sizing of sensible and latent thermal energy storage for compressed air energy storage
Kaya, Mine; Tarı, İlker; Baker, Derek Keıth; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2015)
Intermittent and variable characteristics of renewable energy systems can be compensated by energy storage systems (ESS). There is a wide range of ESS specialized for different applications. Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) is often used for wind power plants due to high power rating at the discharge and long discharge duration. CAES takes ambient air and pressurizes through a compressor and stores compressed air in a volume when supplied energy is greater than demand. If demand exceeds supply, CAES is ...
Parametric Study and Seasonal Simulations of a Solar Powered Adsorption Cooling System
Taylan, Onur; Baker, Derek Keıth; Kaftanoglu, Bilgin (2009-09-03)
Models of solar-thermal powered adsorption cooling systems with and without heat recovery developed in TRNSYS and results from steady-periodic and seasonal simulations are presented. A normalized model is presented and used to process the seasonal TRNSYS results to investigate the coincidence between the solar-supplied cooling power and cooling load as the relative sizes of the cooling system and storage are varied. The normalized model yields a seasonal solar fraction and seasonal loss fraction (the excess...
