403.3.1.1.2.3 Multiple Zone Recirculating Systems
Vpz = Primary airflow: The airflow rate supplied to the zone from the airhandling unit at which the outdoor air intake is located. It includes outdoor intake air and recirculated air from that air-handling unit but does not include air transferred or air recirculated to the zone by other means. For design purposes, Vpz shall be the zone design primary airflow rate, except for zones with variable air volume supply and Vpz shall be the lowest expected primary airflow rate to the zone when it is fully occupied.
The uncorrected outdoor air intake flow rate (Vou) shall be determined in accordance with Equation 4-6.
D = Occupant diversity: the ratio of the system population to the sum of the zone populations, determined in accordance with Equation 4-7.
Ps = System population: The total number of occupants in the area served by the system. For design purposes, Ps shall be the maximum number of occupants expected to be concurrently in all zones served by the system.
