Abstract

The performance of two personalized ventilation systems combined with mixing or displacement ventilation was studied under different conditions in regard to thermal comfort of seated occupants. The cooling performance of personalized ventilation was found to be independent of room air distribution. Differences between the personalized air terminal devices were identified in terms of the cooling distribution over the manikin¿s body. The personalized ventilation supplying air from the front towards the face provided a more uniform cooling of the body than the personalized ventilation supplying air from the below towards the face and may be preferred by occupants in practice.
