This application is to measure the air pollution made by automobile exhaust, mainly the concentration of CO, in underground parking garages. According to practical demands or specific requirements of ventilation, the sensors measure air pollution index to control mechanical ventilation in an automatic energy saving manner.
The number of sensors (referring to number of fans), and typical sensing point (the default detection radius of the sensor is 5m) are determined by the controlled range of each draught fan.
To keep the indoor air quality in underground parking garages at a comfortable level, CO2, temperature and humidity should also be take into consideration. The content of CO2 can be measured as an indication of other pollution. The operation of air fans are determined by comprehensive evaluation, and ventilation systems are controlled according to the concentration of pollutants. In this way the in door ventilation and air quality can be bettered to a certain extent, for example, make alarm for CO and start up ventilation system for 30 minutes for CO2.
