Variable Air Volume (VAV) air-conditioning system presents great energy savings potential especially in hot and humid climate and has been recommended in the Building Energy Code of Taiwan since 1996. Simulation results indicated that the annual energy savings of VAV system in typical commercial buildings in Taiwan could be up to 70% of total fan power.

A full-scale experiment has been performed which validated this result successfully, and would be adapted with the PACS index in the second phase of national Building Energy Code in Taiwan.
