Abstract
Due to increasing interest in IAQ monitoring and DCV aiming at improved perceived air quality, the objective of this work was to develop a reliable, low cost module based on a single micro-machined MOS gas sensor. Most attempts to implement DCV so far rely on the quantification of CO2 as a tracer of human occupancy. Real-life data, applying MOS gas sensor, GC/MS and GCO were recorded to detect VOCs and identify odorous compounds in indoor air generated by humans and bring out correlation of MOS gas sensor data with perceived air quality. A good correlation with TVOCs as well as specific quantifiable VOCs could be observed. Implying a suitable evaluation algorithm, a perfect correlation of predicted with measured CO2 concentrations could be achieved. Broad sensitivity of MOS gas sensors enables monitoring the overall IAQ beyond CO2 by achieving a high correlation with CO2 leading to improved air quality by DCV.
