**Latent and Sensible Heat Production**

Example from ASAE Standard EP270.5: Table 1. Moisture Production, Sensible Heat Loss, and Total Heat Loss Cattle Bldg. T MP SHL THL 500 kg C gH2O/kg-h W/kg W/kg

19
**Sensible Energy Balance**

Leads to Ventilation for Temperature Control: qs + qso + qm + qh = ΣUA(ti-to) + FP(ti-to) + cpρV (ti-to) Heat inputs = envelope + floor + ventilation U – building heat transfer coeff. P – floor perimeter F – perimeter heat loss factor cp – specific heat of air V – ventilation rate ρ – density of air qs – sensible heat qso – solar heat gain qm – mechanical heat sources qh – supplemental heat

20
**Sensible Energy Balance**

Leads to Ventilation for Temperature Control. Rearranging: V = [ qs - ( Σ UA+ FP)(ti-to)] / 0.24 ρ (ti-to)60 V – cfm (equation for English units)

**Humidity ratio difference**

Moisture Balance Example balance for moisture control removal rate. / mair Ventilation rate Mwater Moisture to be removed (Wi-Wo) Humidity ratio difference = Q = (V / 60) x [ Wr / (Wi-Wo) ] Q - cfm V – ft3/lbda Wr – lbm / hr W – lbm / lbda

**Find the minimum winter ventilation rate to maintain**

60% relative humidity inside a swine nursery that has a capacity of 800 pigs weighing 10 pounds. Inside temperature is 85 degrees. Find moisture production data ASABE Standards (EP270.5) Wr = lb/hr/pig Get psychrometric data from chart W0 = Wi = V = 14.1 Plug into equation & solve Q = (14.1/60) x [(.017 x 800) / ( )] Q = 214 cfm

**NH3 Balance Find the ventilation rate required to prevent the**

ammonia concentration inside a poultry layer barn from rising above 20 ppm. Ammonia production in the barn is estimated to be 21.6 cubic feet per hour. Ammonia concentration in the ambient air is 2 ppm.

26
**NH3 Solution Use volumetric form of mass balance equation Vp + Vi = Vo**

Vp + Qv[NH3]i = Qv[NH3]o Solve for Qv Qv = Vp / { [NH3]o - [NH3]i } Get quantities in consistent units Vp = (21.6 ft3/hr / 60 min/hr) = 0.36 ft3/min Plug into equation & solve Q = 0.36 / ( )] Q = 0.36 / Q = 20,000 cfm
