Laboratory Test of Self-correcting Controls for Air Handling Units
Laboratory tests by PNNL showed that automatic self-correction of faults can be successfully performed. However, under some conditions passive detection of a fault may not be possible. The fault isolation process may also reach an incorrect conclusion under some circumstances, most commonly when closed dampers were leaking. This problem may be addressed by modifying the algorithms to automatically account for imperfections in damper sealing.
