Print Supply Air Requirements

The section describes what is printed when Print Supply Air Requirements is checked in the Print Load Calculations dialog box.

Load Calculations--Print Load Calculations.Supply Air Requirements

Supply Air Requirements

The Supply Air Requirements table lists each room and zone in the project and the amount of air required to condition the space.

Load Calculations--Print Load Calculations.Print Supply Air Requirements

Location: All the zones and rooms in the project. Rooms and zones that are part of a zone are indented and listed below the parent zone.

Current Supply CFM: For rooms, this value is the total airflow for all the supply diffusers inserted in the room on the drawing. For zones, this value is the sum of the airflow of all the rooms in the zone.

Required Supply CFM: The supply airflow required to condition the room or zone.

If nothing else is set, it is the greater of the Cooling, Supply CFM and Heating, Supply CFM values.

For a zone, if System Type is set to Constant Volume or the Room Supply CFM Basis is set to Prorate using fixed supply CFM in the Zone List command, the airflow is the sum of the peak room airflows. If System Type is set to Variable Air Volume and the Room Supply CFM Basis is set to Use calculated room loads, the airflow is based upon the coincident peak for the zone. The sum of the peak room airflows is always equal to or greater than the coincident peak airflow.

If Room Supply CFM Basis is set to Prorate using fixed supply CFM in the Zone List command, then two values are listed. The first is the calculated value. The second is the fixed value that is based upon the Fixed Supply CFM field. For a zone, the fixed value is taken directly from the Fixed Supply CFM field. For rooms, the value of the fixed airflow is set so that the ratio between the calculated room and zone airflows is the same as the ratio between the fixed room and zone airflows.

Cooling, Peak: The month and hour when the peak room cooling load occurs. This is the same time as the peak display in the Cooling Load Details - Room table in the Print Cooling Detail section.

This peak is the time of the peak room load for both zones and rooms. It is not the time of the peak system load for zones.

If System Type is set to Constant Volume in the Zone List command, then CV - Sum of Peaks is listed. Constant volume zones do not have a peak time.

Cooling, Supply Temperature: Set using the Cooling Temperature field in the AHU and Coil Settings section of the Zone List command. It is left blank if the temperature is based upon the zone that is above the zone or room.

Cooling, Load (btu/h): The total cooling load. This value is the sum of the loads in the Cooling Load Details - Room table in the Print Cooling Detail section. It is also the same as the Cooling, Total value in the Load Total Summary - Room table from the Print Load Summary section.

For a zone, if System Type is set to Constant Volume in the Zone List command, the load is the sum of the peak room loads. Otherwise, the load is the coincident peak for the zone. The sum of the peak rooms loads is always equal to or greater than the coincident peak load.

Cooling, Supply CFM: The airflow required to cool the room or zone. Calculated using the following formula:

Cooling Supply CFM = Room Cooling Sensible Load / (1.1 * Altitude Factor * (Cooling Temperature - Supply Air Temperature))

Room Cooling Sensible Load is the same as the Cooling, Btu/h, Sensible column in the Load Total Summary - Room table. See the Print Load Summary section for more information.

Altitude Factor = (1 - (0.0000068753 * Elevation))^5.2559

Elevation is set using the Elevation field in the Project Info command.

Cooling Temperature is set using the Indoor Air Defaults, Cooling Temperature field in the Zone List command.

Supply Air Temperature is set using the AHU and Coil Settings, Cooling Temperature field in the Zone List command.

For rooms, if the Minimum Supply Air field is set in the Edit Rooms or Room Project Schedule command, the value will be at least as much as the specified minimum.

For rooms, if the Minimum Room Ventilation Percentage field is set in the Project Info command, the value will might be increased to maintain the specified ventilation percentage.

Cooling, OSA CFM: The ventilation airflow for the room or zone.

For rooms, set using the Cooling 1 and Cooling 2 fields in in the Ventilation section of the Edit Rooms or Room Project Schedule command.

For zones, calculated based upon the value of the Ventilation Calculation Method field in the Project Info command.

Cooling, OSA %: The percentage of cooling supply air that is outside air.

Heating, Heating Temperature Difference: Set using the Heating Temperature Difference field in the AHU and Coil Settings section of the Zone List command. It is left blank if the temperature is based upon the zone that is above the zone or room.

Heating, Load (btu/h): The total cooling load. This value is the sum of the loads in the Heating Load Details table in the Print Heating Detail section. It is also the same as the Heating, Btu/h value in the Load Total Summary - System and Load Total Summary - Room table from the Print Load Summary section.

Heating, Supply CFM: The airflow required to heat the room or zone. Calculated using the following formula:

Heating Supply CFM = Room Heating Load / (1.08 * Altitude Factor * Heating Temperature Difference)

Room Heating Load is the same as the Heating, Btu/h column in the Load Total Summary - Room table. See the Print Load Summary section for more information.

Altitude Factor = (1 - (0.0000068753 * Elevation))^5.2559

Elevation is set using the Elevation field in the Project Info command.

Heating Temperature Difference is set using the AHU and Coil Settings, Heating Temperature Difference field in the Zone List command.

For rooms, if the Minimum Supply Air field is set in the Edit Rooms or Room Project Schedule command, the value will be at least as much as the specified minimum.

For rooms, if the Minimum Room Ventilation Percentage field is set in the Project Info command, the value will might be increased to maintain the specified ventilation percentage.

Heating, OSA CFM: The ventilation airflow for the room or zone.

For rooms, set using the Heating 1 and Heating 2 fields in in the Ventilation section of the Edit Rooms or Room Project Schedule command.

For zones, calculated based upon the value of the Ventilation Calculation Method field in the Project Info command.

Heating, OSA %: The percentage of heating supply air that is outside air.
