Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning is a process of treating the indoor air as desired ( and/or required ) quality. Generally, temperature and humidity ratio of indoor air are controlled as required. HVAC system also makes circulating of indoor air for good ventilating and refreshment of indoor air by mixing circulating indoor air with certain amounts of outdoor air. Today, HVAC systems are widely used all over the world. Depends upon the climate of the region, HVAC systems are used as required such as the purpose for heat or cool, to humidify or dehumidify, etc. As a consequence of HVAC systems become more important in modern life style (residential, commercial and industrial), energy usage for HVAC systems also rises year by year. On the other hand, although advancements made in computer technology and development of new control methodologies, the controllers widely used for HVAC systems are still lack to provide satisfactory performance in energy usage, ability to regulate the predetermined setpoints, etc.
