1. Heat Pump Test Apparatus for the Evaluation of Low Global Warming Potential Refrigerants
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1895
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 11/12/2015
Author: Harrison M Skye
Abstract: International efforts to reduce man-made global warming include restrictions on the use of chemicals with a high global warming potential (GWP). The heating, ventilation, air- conditioning, and refrigeration (HVAC&R) industry subsequently faces a ...

2. A Self Learning Algorithm for Temperature Prediction in a Single Family Residence
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1891
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 9/29/2015
Authors: Farhad Omar, Steven T Bushby
Abstract: In order to develop effective control optimization strategies to manage residential electricity consumption in a smart grid environment, predictive algorithms are needed that are simple to implement, minimize custom configuration, and provide eno ...

3. Hitting the bounds of chemistry: Limits and tradeoffs for low-GWP refrigerants.
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 8/19/2015
Authors: Mark O McLinden, J. Steven Brown, Andrei F Kazakov, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: We explore the possibilities for low-GWP refrigerants through two approaches. First, we explore the performance of hypothetical refrigerants to define the limits of what is allowed by thermodynamics. In the second approach, we apply property estimati ...

4. A Generalized Data-Driven Energy Prediction Model with Uncertainty for a Milling Machine Tool using Gaussian Process
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 6/8/2015
Authors: Jinkyoo Park, Raunak Bhinge, Nishant Biswas, Amrita Srinivasan, Kincho H. Law, David Dornfeld, Moneer M Helu, Sudarsan Rachuri
Abstract: Using a machine learning approach, this study investigates the effects of machining parameters on the energy consumption of a milling machine tool, which would allow selection of optimal operational strategies to machine a part with the minimum e ...

5. Deployment of a Load Simulator in Simulating Residential Household Appliances
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 4/9/2015
Authors: Wenqi Guo, Tania Ullah
Abstract: Real-time electricity monitoring in residences is a growing market, with a number of systems being commercialized that provide feedback to occupants on electrical power and energy consumption. These systems are also useful for research purposes, by ...

6. Design Challenges of the NIST Net Zero Energy Residential Test Facility
Series: Technical Note (NIST TN)
Report Number: 1847
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 3/26/2015
Authors: Betsy Pettit, Cathy Gates, Arthur Hunter Fanney, William M Healy
Abstract: Homeowners and builders have increasingly strived to build low energy use and environmentally friendly homes. As materials and equipment have improved, energy reduction as a goal has increasingly been replaced with the goal of net-zero energy use. ...

7. The Effect of Piping Heat Losses on the Efficiency of Solar Thermal Water Heating in a Net-Zero Energy Home
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 1/28/2015
Authors: Tania Ullah, William M Healy
Abstract: This study evaluates the thermal performance of an dual-tank domestic hot water (DHW) system designed for a net-zero home at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Gaithersburg Maryland campus. Hot water demand for a virtual family of fo ...

8. Performance Ranking of Refrigerants With Low Global Warming Potential
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 1/7/2015
Authors: Mark A Kedzierski, J S Brown, Junemo Koo
Abstract: This paper evaluates in a typical air-conditioner the cycle performance of thirty-nine refrigerants identified in the AHRI Low Global Warming Potential (GWP) Alternative Refrigerants Evaluation Program (Low-GWP AREP). The Low-GWP AREP was initiated ...

Authors: Guodong Shao, Alexander Brodsky, Seungjun Shin, Duck Bong Kim
Abstract: Sustainable manufacturing has significant impact on a company‰s business performance and competitiveness in today‰s world. A growing number of manufacturing industries are initiating efforts to address sustainability issues; however, to achieve a hig ...

10. Green Button: Building an Interoperable Ecosystem
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 11/25/2014
Authors: Martin J Burns, John A Teeter, David A Wollman
Abstract: Our goal in the Green Button Initiative is to provide electricity customers with easy access to their energy usage data in a consumer-friendly and computer-friendly format, and to develop an interoperable ecosystem for utilities, manufacturers, and c ...
