The natural ventilation of buildings – principle and potentials

Natural ventilation is supported by motor-driven windows. Windows are opened and closed by an intelligent control system that takes into account various factors such as wind speed, wind direction, air humidity and the CO2 content in the room. To make optimal use of the possibilities, key points must be taken into account in the early planning phase, both in new buildings and with renovations. The room geometry and window placement, for example, both have an effect on efficiency.
In addition to planning details, the publication also illustrates control variants and how natural and mechanical ventilation can be combined. It also includes practical examples showing how intelligent systems for natural ventilation can be integrated into the building plan.
