1. Programmers Guide to the Air-Handling Unit Performance Assessment Rule DLL
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 7960
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 9/26/2013
Author: Michael A Galler
Abstract: The AHU Performance Assessment Rules (APAR) were developed in 2001 and have been implemented as part of a limited number of Fault Detection and Diagnostics (FDD) tools. While a list of the rules has been widely available, an implementation of them ...

3. Alarm Information for Decision Support
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1614
Topic: Cybernetic Building Systems
Published: 11/4/2010
Authors: William D. Davis, Adam M. Barowy, Stephen Kerber
Abstract: Experiments conducted in a Toledo Ohio school are used to examine the use of signals from simulated heat detectors by incident command. Two approaches are examined. The first is to use the signal from ceiling mounted thermocouples to deduce condit ...
