constant volume system

constant volume system

An air-conditioning system which supplies air at a fixed volume per unit time; the temperature of the supplied air is used to regulate the temperature of the air-conditioned space if there are variations in the load on the system.

The unit airflow is typically modulated in some way to match the server fan though a constant volume system can still be employed.
The consequence is that a very expensive VAV system can have the same operating cost as a constant volume system.
The building's constant volume system was converted to a variable air volume (VAV) system, contributing most significantly to the project's energy and fiscal savings.
Since this is a constant volume system, and I'm not moving much air to begin with, you don't have constantly varying pressures between spaces like you do with VAV," Mumma said.
has been awarded a contract to install new variable frequency drives (VFD's) to replace the constant volume system at Chicago's main post office.
The older system operated as a large constant volume system that staged each 15 ton (53 kW) AC unit to match the loading in each space, which ranges between 20 and 40 tons (70 and 141 kW) throughout the year.
Unlike the constant volume system, there is only one requirement that must be satisfied to make this a successful pass.
The engineering team's contributions included the design of a dual-duct, dual-fan, variable air volume system (VAV) to replace the existing dual-duct, single-fan, constant volume system.
The following calculations assume a 25,000 cfm (11 800 L/s) constant volume system of 55[degrees]F (13[degrees]C) air at 8 in.
In this case, as indicated previously, the actual design flow for the variable flow system is 360 gpm (23 L/s) compared to 400 gpm (25 L/s) for the constant volume system with a DSF of 11% and a second system with a DSF of 25% and a flow of450 gpm (28 L/s).
Constant volume systems such as WSHP, fan coil and some series fan box applications allow a simpler choice in air outlet selection and location.
