Meeting Documents

Download documents from previous committee meetings below according to the appropriate society year. ASHRAE's society year begins on July 1 and ends June 30.

Tip: The following section can be edited by the webmaster as needed. It does not have to be about Whitepapers. You can edit that to be anything. To add, delete or reposition sections of the accordion, use the concentric arrows button in the editing toolbar at the top. When typing or inserting text into an accordion and there is more than one paragraph, you MUST use "shift + enter" between paragraphs. Be sure that you do not accidentally just use the "enter" key to separate the paragraphs. It will look OK but after you publish the page, the text after the 'enter' may no longer be editable.

TC 7.5 has completed the following research projects:

RP-1274 -- Field Performance Assessment of Package Equipment to Quantify Benefits of Proper Service

The purpose of this project was to perform proper fault detection and diagnoses of HVAC package equipment and to quantify the benefits of proper service. Increasing the reliability of fault detection and diagnosis would improve unit efficiency, reduce energy costs, and contribute to improved occupant comfort. The cost of proper servicing would be offset by these efficiency gains and reduced costs.

RP-1274, "Field Performance Assessment of Package Equipment to Quantify Benefits of Proper Service"
RP-1011, "Utility/Energy Management and Control Systems (EMCS) Communication Protocol Requirements"
RP-1043 "Fault Detection and Diagnostic Requirements and Evaluation Tools for Chillers"
