AbstractThe control of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning ( HVAC) systems is changing as a result of applying direct digital control (DDC) techniques to HVAC control. This report outlines the main features of DDC compared with conventional pneumatic control and shows that, for small- to medium-size buildings, the DDC system can pay for itself within two years, after which it effects net savings over pneumatic systems.
