Abstract

Previous works demonstrated that the combination of the roof turbine ventilator and bathroom ventilation successfully achieved adequate air change rate in bathrooms. Therefore, this ventilation design alternative is a promising means of improving the indoor air environment. The design concept in a following study was aimed at increasing the operation and energy efficiency of the rooftop turbine ventilator and then developing a prototype of the rooftop turbine ventilator powered by hybrid renewable energy (wind and photovoltaic (PV) energy). In this study, an innovative rooftop turbine ventilator powered by hybrid wind and photovoltaic energy, or simply "Hybrid Ventilator" for short, was developed. CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) simulations shall be applied to survey the building ventilation efficiency of this Hybrid Ventilator used in Taiwan.
