The paper describes a component-based dynamic simulation of a variable air volume (VAV) airconditioning system. The model is based closely on the design of one floor of a real commercial office building in London. The model includes an air handling unit and a duct system incorporating pressure-independent VAV boxes. The paper describes the simulation environment used to test control systems and to develop fault detection and diagnosis procedures and presents results of simulations that illustrate how the simulation can be used to study the interactions between control loops.
