Learning Objectives Explain the differences between passive downdraught cooling, active downdraught cooling and hybrid downdraught cooling Name three technologies that can form effective hybrid systems with passive downdraught cooling Discuss how passive cooling might affect a building s form Explain the LEED credits associated with passive hybrid downdraught cooling PDEC PHDC Uses evaporative cooling and natural ventilation exclusively. Uses both evaporative downdraught cooling and a mechanical backup system. Air Conditioning 12% U.S. electricity supply 40% of Peak Load 50% Efficiency of fossil fuel electric plant Evaporative Cooling Air Circulation What is Passive Downdraught Cooling? Passive Appropriate for hot, dry conditions Depends on evaporating water in the airstream Uses natural ventilation Active Appropriate for hot, humid conditions Depends on fans, chilled water coils or a/c Uses mechanical equipment for cooling and/or to speed ventilation Hybrid Combines techniques Applying Passive Cooling Active vs. Passive Cooling Chart Established Related Technologies Evaporative (Swamp) Coolers Adding a Heat Exchanger Qanat Two Systems Working Together Cooling systems located at the top of the building or in a tower Vertical air circulation space or spaces Provision for horizontal air circulation Properly sized warm air vents Complementary strategies Passive Cooling Methods Sprayed mist or water droplets Shower (shower towers) Misting apparatus (misting towers) Drip pipe or board Wet pads, filters or porous surfaces Porous ceramics Wetted cellulous pads An air stream flowing past a stream of water Qanat Waterfall or water feature Central atrium Central shaft Perimeter tower Detached tower Air Intake Geometry: Central Atriums and Shafts Air Intake Geometry: Perimeter Towers Air Exhaust Geometry Ask Yourself Where will the cool air be used? Just in the central atrium? In the spaces around the cooling area? In the entire building? How can this best be accomplished? By a central open area? By a closed tower with vents? By shafts or light wells with vents? Where will the air intakes be located? Wind direction? Height? Architectural form? Where will the intake and/or exhaust vents be located, and how will the air reach them?
