Rules for cooling through motorized vent windows.


During two years the passive climate system with motorized openable windows is monitored in a real office building. During this period the control system is improved. Control rules for window design, fresh air supply and cooling are described in the paper. Experiments are carried out with a tracer gas techniques to find ventilation rates under all kind of realistic conditions. A ventilation model is derived. With this model adequate and simple rules for the control of ventwindows could be derived.
