$0.00 Student Ticket

Technical Session - 5 pm (optional) - Fan application engineering - system curves, fan curves, fan efficiency and fan selection.

Dinner - 6:15 pm

Main Presentation - 7:00 pm - The Fan Energy Index (FEI) - A new metric for evaluating fan performances.

 

Technical Session Highlights:

The tech session will (re-)familiarize you with the fan application engineering concepts needed to better understand the FEI topics we'll cover after dinner.

 

Main Presentation Highlights:

FEI is now replacing the older Fan Efficiency Grade (FEG) rating system.  Whereas FEG was based on the peak efficiency that a particular fan model could achieve, the Fan Energy Index evaluates the ability of the fan to serve a particular flow and pressure requirement, known as the duty point.  FEI is scheduled to replace FEG in ASHRAE 90.1 and many building code authorities are considering or are already implementing the change to FEI
