Abstract

The energy consumption for the climatization of school buildings is characterized by the energy requirement connected with the strong ventilation rates caused by the high occupancy normally foreseen in the classroom in design conditions. Actually the variability of the presences suggests a careful control of the flow rate on the basis of the real exigencies. In the same way in the design, the technical capitulate normally impose values of the internal relative humidity close to 50%, both in summer and winter. This fact involves a remarkable quota of the latent load with respect to the total load. The modern science of comfort has however showed the possibility to operate in a wider interval of the humidity without compromising the indoor comfort. The energy savings following a correct management of the plants just in terms of ventilation and humidity control are here presented. The investigation is based on the use of dynamic simulation by a model and by the monitoring of an university building recently realized in Venice.
