TOKYO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO:6503) announced today that it has developed a new airflow-control technology that both visualizes and analyzes airflow from air-conditioning systems and temperature distribution for optimized room-wide comfort. The technology predicts airflows and temperatures, which vary according to the room shape and air-conditioning system layout, to determine how to minimize uneven temperatures and discomfort due to excessively strong airflow. As such, the technology contributes both to occupant satisfaction and to building asset value. Mitsubishi Electric also expects to use its new solution to advise building owners and designers on how to enhance indoor layouts for increased comfort.
In recent years, due to the impact of COVID-19 and other factors, there has been an increasing emphasis on the healthfulness and comfort of indoor spaces, including ventilation. So far, however, it has been difficult to use built-in sensors of A/C units to collect data on airflow due to great variations in room and air-conditioning system layouts.
Details of the new technology will be announced on April 21 at the 55th Japanese Joint Conference on Air-conditioning and Refrigeration, which will be held at the Etchujima Campus of Tokyo University of Marine Science and Technology on April 20–21.
