The issue of the control of hydronic and aeraulic systems in the field of HVAC plants is an increasingly impactful issue in terms of energy consumption.
The widespread adoption of variable-flow systems today represents the best possibility of optimizing systems for applications characterized by high load variability.
The field of research in this field is focused on the one hand to research and development of new procedures for the balancing of constant flow systems and on the other hand to research control methodologies through low-authority and low-loss actuators. The focus of research in the field of air systems is on methods of assessing network leakage and the quantification of energy costs related to air leakage in pipelines.
