Two air terminal devices (ATD) for personalized ventilation (PV) were developed: Round Movable Panel (RMP) and Headset-Incorporated Supply (Headset). The performance of the ATDs was tested at three combinations of room air temperature and supply personalized air temperature: 23/23oC, 23/20oC and 26/20oC respectively, and at different flow rates of personalized air, ranging from 5 to 15 L/s for RMP and 0.18 to 0.5 L/s for Headset. A breathing thermal manikin was used to evaluate the inhaled air quality achieved with the developed ATDs as well as the performance in regard to thermal comfort. The results revealed that inhaled air consisting of 100% personalized air was achieved with the RMP and up to 80% with the Headset. The change in room temperature that would have affected whole-body heat loss equivalently, ranged from less than 0.5 K to 2.2 K for RMP and almost 0 K for the Headset.
