Recently, building energy systems with solar collector and solar module have increased to improve energy problem, a heat island, a global warming and carbon dioxide emissions. In this study, value of solar radiation in areas was analyzed using TRNSYS simulation, and the optimum tilt and orientation angle for installing a photovoltaic module was examined. Average values of the weather data in the past twenty years in areas were used as input data. The results show that the tilt angle of a photovoltaic module for gaining the annual maximum solar radiation varies in different localities, and values of the annual solar radiation gained by using the variable photovoltaic module increased by 2.5 percent as compared with that gained by using the fixed photovoltaic module. When fixed photovoltaic module is installed, it should be examined the tilt and orientation angle for installing a photovoltaic module was examined.

Recently, residents have been spending almost 90% of their time indoors, which presents a higher risk from inhalation of pollutants than when spending time outdoors. Therefore, controlling indoor air quality became important. It is reported that the lung diseases and mortality for occupants are increased when there is high density of ozone which is one of the pollutants among the indoor air. In addition, the reactions between ozone and building materials produce VOCs and formaldehyde. The studies to eliminate the ozone by building materials have been actively investigated. However, ozone removal and secondary pollutants from ozone reactions with building materials have not been reported in Korea. For this reason, the aim of this study is to introduce ozone removal by HVAC filters, various building materials, and eco-friendly building materials including the quantity of secondary pollutant emissions.

Park, Young-Gi ; Ye, Huee-Youl ; Lee, Kwan-Soo ;
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 24, issue 6, 2012, Pages 476~486
DOI : 10.6110/KJACR.2012.24.6.476
A simulation program was developed to evaluate the heat transfer performance of a multi-pass fin-tube evaporator, considering the pressure drop in the distributor and capillary tubes. The effect of capillary tube length for each pass was analyzed with various inlet air flow types and distributions. The appropriate capillary tube length distribution and correlation were determined for various inlet air flow types and distributions. The correlated results agreed well with the simulation, with an average error of less than 7%. By applying an optimal capillary tube length distribution, the heat transfer rate was increased by 4~5% compared to cases with uniform tubelength distributions, for each of the inlet air flow types and distributions considered in this study.

Recently, utilization of building foundations as ground-coupled heat exchangers has attracted much attention because they reduce the cost and enhance the heat transfer. The objective of this study is to evaluate the performance of energy-slab ground-coupled heat exchanger installed in a commercial building. In order to demonstrate the energy transfer characteristics of the energy-slab, experiments were conducted from October 2010 to September 2011. The 1-year measurement results showed that the mean EWTs of brine returning from the energy-slab were
in heating season and
in cooling season, which were in a range of design target temperatures. In addition, the geothermal heat pump system with the energy-slab showed on-off operation according to the setting temperatures of secondary fluid in water storage tank. The results also showed that the energy-slab extracted heat of 198.6 kW from the ground and injected heat of 318.9 kW to the ground, respectively.

Rim, Min-Yeop ; Lee, Ji-Hyun ; Kim, Soo-Young ;
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 24, issue 6, 2012, Pages 497~508
DOI : 10.6110/KJACR.2012.24.6.497
Occupants` visual perception, psychological responses and spatial satisfaction under various indoor lighting environments were analyzed in this study. Field measurements and surveys were conducted in four coffeeshop space where different lighting conditions were used. Results imply that worse visual comfort was reported under direct lighting conditions that exposed light sources to occupants. To improve spatial satisfaction in space, lighting environments should lessen visual thresholds and distraction. Also, necessary illuminance levels should be kept with appropriate color of light that occupants prefer. Worse spatial satisfaction was reported under direct lighting environments, and spatial satisfaction was strongly relevant to visual comfort. Psychological comfort for space was positive in space where visual thresholds were minimized and visual comfort was positively evaluated. Psychological and spatial satisfaction was relevant each other. Occupants preferred to stay longer in space where psychological and spatial satisfaction was positively achieved due to less visual thresholds and improved visual comfort. Better psychological and spatial satisfaction was achieved in space where temporary mood and visual perception were favorably evaluated under indirect lighting environments.

Nam, Yu-Jin ;
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 24, issue 6, 2012, Pages 509~514
DOI : 10.6110/KJACR.2012.24.6.509
In this research, a heat pump system with a heat source network is suggested which utilizes solar heat and ground heat as heat source for cooling and heating. This paper describes the summary of the suggested system and the results of the annual energy simulation. The heating and cooling loads, the electric consumption and the COP were calculated by TRNSYS 16 and evaluated in the cases of different local conditions and different system compositions. In the results, the superiority of the suggested system has been quantitatively evaluated comparing with the conventional heat pump system using one heat source. Furthermore, it was more significant in cold climate, in which the heating COP was 146% increased compared the air source heat pump system, than it in subtropical climate, 119% increased.

Kang, Eun-Chul ; Lee, Euy-Joon ; Yo, Seong-Yeon ;
Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering, volume 24, issue 6, 2012, Pages 515~520
DOI : 10.6110/KJACR.2012.24.6.515
A daylighting system includes three parts; light collector, light transformer and light distributor. A DBLP(Double blind light pipe) daylighting system consists of a double blind light collector, a mirror duct type light transformer and a prism film light pipe distributor. The double blinds for a light collection are used to track the sun`s altitude and azimuth movements throughout the day. Behind both sets of blinds is the light transformer, which is based on a rectangular cone shaped light duct. The light transformer was designed to efficiently deliver the light into the light pipe within a 30 degree radial spread for the efficient light into the distributor. In this study, DBLP system efficiency was simulated, evaluated and optimized by Tracepro as a popular ray trace light design simulation program. The results indicated that DBLP system efficiency evaluated a maximum 22.4% in case of Spring/Fall season solar noon time. While the overall average system efficiency in the morning and afternoon is evaluated about 10%.

Analysis of thermal performance is required for the economic operation of turbine cycle of power plant. We developed corrective model of main feed water flow which is the most important parameter for the precise analysis of turbine cycle performance. Classification model for the identification of feed water flow measurement status was applied to increase the suitability of the corrective model. We used neural network and support vector machine to develop estimation model of main feed water flow with more generalization capability. The estimation model can be used practically to evaluate corrective performance of turbine cycle plant.
