# Baseline Fan System Summary

90.1-2016 BM

The baseline building fan system is summarized in this section. See Table 3.1-1 for the HVAC baseline building system mapping.

Total baseline building fan system power for the baseline building fan systems is given in Table 3.7.3-1. In this table, "cfms" is the supply fan air flow at peak design conditions. This is calculated for the baseline building with the sizing procedure described in Figure 2.4-1. This brake horsepower includes the supply fan, the return fan, and exhaust fans. Exhaust fans include kitchen hoods, toilets, fume hoods, and other miscellaneous fans that operate at design conditions.

A           A break horsepower adder due to special conditions. See Table 3.7.3-3. CFMs    The air volume in cubic feet per minute delivered by the supply fan. CFMnmc The air volume in cubic feet per minute delivered by the supply fan for non-mechanical cooling systems (applicable to systems 9 and 10). hm              The baseline system fan motor efficiency taken from Table 3.7.3-4.
