Energy performance of buildings - Ventilation for buildings - Part 3: For non-residential buildings - Performance requirements for ventilation and room-conditioning systems (Modules M5-1, M5-4)

General information

European Norm

91.120.10     91.140.30  


This document applies to the design, energy performance of buildings and implementation of ventilation, air conditioning and room conditioning systems for non-residential buildings subject to human occupancy, excluding applications like industrial processes. It focuses on the definitions of the various parameters that are relevant for such systems.
The guidance for design given in this document and accompanying CEN/TR 16798 4 are mainly applicable to mechanical supply and/or exhaust ventilation systems. Natural ventilation systems or natural parts of hybrid ventilation systems are not covered by this document. Reference is made to the WI 00156243 (under development).
Applications for residential ventilation are not covered in this document. Performance of ventilation systems in residential buildings are covered in EN 15665 and CEN/TR 14788.
The classification uses different categories. For some values, examples are given and, for requirements, typical ranges with default values are presented. The default values are given in Annex B and a template for national specification is given in Annex A. Classification should always be appropriate to the type of building and its intended use, and the basis of the classification should be explained if the examples given in the European Standard are not to be used.
NOTE 1 Different standards can express the categories for the same parameters in a different way, and also the category symbols can be different.
Table 1 shows the relative position of this document within the set of EPB standards in the context of the modular structure as set out in EN ISO 52000 1.
NOTE 2 In CEN ISO/TR 52000 2 the same Table can be found, with, for each module, the numbers of the relevant EPB standards and accompanying technical reports that are published or in preparation.
NOTE 3 The modules represent EPB standards, although one EPB standard might cover more than one module and one module might be covered by more than one EPB standard, for instance a simplified and a detailed method respectively. See also Clause 2 and Table A.1 and Table B.1.
