Field Testing of Climate Appropriate Air Conditioning Systems

The results of this study demonstrate VC-RTU systems achieve superior high energy efficacy at full and part-load conditions. Observations support a 30% reduction in energy usage at peak load. Given additional capabilities to respond to a demand response (DR) signal while optimizing its performance, overall average savings for energy efficiency may be enhanced with the DR functionality, providing a good fit for an integrated EE/DR offering in the future.
