    We present for the first time continuous hourly measurements of pollen near-surface concentration and lidar-derived profiles of particle backscatter coefficients and of volume and particle depolarization ratios during a ...
  • Development and calibration of a model for the dynamic simulation of fans with induction motors 

    Vaccarini, M.; Carbonari, Alessandro; Casals Casanova, Miquel (2017-01-25)
    Article
    Accés obert
    In this paper a model for the dynamic simulation of fans used in mechanical air supply systems is described. Thanks to this model, the behavior of fans subject to control by variable frequency drives (VFD) can be predicted, ...
