Abstract: Dynamic system simulation tools are needed for developing advanced control, operation, and fault detection and diagnosis techniques for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. There has been a lack of dynamic simulation tool development focusing on dual duct systems. The work here summarizes an effort to develop and validate a dynamic simulation model that is able to simulate fault free and faulty operational data for the air flow network in a dual duct double fan system. The challenges and solutions of simulating such dual duct dual fan air flow networks are discussed. A systematic validation procedure is developed to validate the model, which shows good agreement between simulated outputs and experimental data generated from a small commercial building in a laboratory facility.
