The inputs may be accessed within the operational and control technologies section of the ventilation inputs screen. A number of technology and control parameters are available for each. A two-position or continuously modulated damper is required for some of these options.
The air leakage into a building is determined from the inferred or user-specified infiltration rate. The infiltration rate is the amount of outside air entering the building during periods when the ventilation system is either not operating or not supplying outside air (i.e., times when building is not under a positive pressure).
The ventilation end use inputs screen contains very basic information on the ventilation motors (total capacity and efficiency). The fan motors button simply enables a user to specify more detailed motor parameters by accessing the underlying fan motor inputs screen. From here, information, such as speed, enclosure type, voltage, vintage, and number of motors can be specified. It is important to realize that if any of this information has been entered, the fan motor inputs on the main ventilation screen will be inaccessible without first deleting the more detailed inputs.
