Smart and Sustainable Building Technologies




The ACMV (Air-Conditioning & Mechanical Ventilation) laboratory has a mixture of research activities ranging from fundamental studies to applied research. A complete ACMV system (including, chiller, cooling tower, air distribution, and filters) will be installed in the lab for testing and optimization purpose. The ACMV lab will help to optimize energy consumption of conventional components as well as to innovate new product and solutions for tropical climates, which includes:

  • Cooling tower energy and water consumption
  • Chiller plant systems
  • Air distribution System, and
  • Filters, to maintain good indoor air quality (IAQ)
