This design guide is a product of the Low Energy Cooling And Ventilation For Indian Residences (LECaVIR) research project. LECaVIR is a collaboration between CEPT Research and Development Foundation (CRDF) and Loughborough University (LU) funded by The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), UK. The guide is divided into two parts: Part A presents the LECaVIR concepts and provides a background to thermal comfort and natural ventilation within the context of Indian residences. The intention of Part A is to equip practitioners, designers, and operators with all the information required to specify LECaVIR and undertaken initial concept design work. Part B provides further details on how to undertake appropriate sizing for a LECaVIR system, and how to develop an appropriate control strategy for mixed-mode ventilation.
