White Paper: How to Use CFD to Improve Energy Efficiency of Fans for Air Handling Units

Energy efficiency of HVAC systems is significantly dependent on fans installed in Air Handling Units (AHUs). Fans account for 8% of total electric power consumption in residential buildings and 17% of total electric power consumption in commercial buildings. This white paper explains how Computational Fluid Dynamics can help achieve energy efficiency in fan design and comply with ISO 12759 and EU regulations.
