AbstractIn a demand-controlled ventilation (DCV) system, ventilation rate is adjusted in response to a measurable parameter that is indicative of the overall air quality at a given time. Compared to conventional ventilation control strategies, the feedback based system can provide advantages including energy savings and acceptable indoor air quality. The role of sensors in a DCV system is more critical compared to that in other ventilation strategies. Unreliable sensor technology was one of the main barriers to widespreadimplementation of the DCV system.
