Development of a Fault Detection and Diagnostics Lab Test Method for a Commercial Packaged Rooftop Unit
This project intends to break new ground in the world of fault detection and diagnostics (FDD), and improved heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) performance through enhanced maintenance. FDD and HVAC maintenance show ample opportunity to achieve and maintain significant energy and demand savings in support of strategic initiatives, goals, and policies across California. The project’s goal is to develop a laboratory test method for FDD technologies for a commercial packaged rooftop unit (RTU) air conditioner. The test method presented in this report is part of many ongoing efforts needed to continually explore solutions to the complex issues inherent with FDD and HVAC maintenance.
