Both a prototype variable-air-volume constant temperature (VAV) and a constant-air-volume variable temperature (CAV) air conditioning system were installed and operated under simulated load conditions. This report discusses (1) the background, objectives and features of this facility, (2) the comparative energy consumption of the two systems under various loading conditions, and (3) the energy consumption of different components.
