Fans used in air-handling systems often have a significant impact on energy use and acoustics. How much of an impact depends on how a fan is selected, installed, and operated.
This program discusses fan performance curves and fan laws, different fan types (fan blade shape, housed vs. plenum fans, direct-drive plenum fans, fan arrays), how a fan interacts with various types of systems, considerations when selecting a fan (efficiency, acoustics, footprint), and the ASHRAE Standard 90.1 fan power limitations. What you will learn:
This ENL discusses the application of fans in air-handling systems, including fan laws, fan-system interaction, fan performance curves, types of fans, and proper selection, installation, and operation of various fan types (efficiency, acoustics, and footprint).
Includes presentation slides, presenter biographies, outline and bibliography.
