This article reviews the papers published in the Korean Journal of Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Engineering during 2017. It is intended to understand the status of current research in the areas of heating, cooling, ventilation, sanitation, and indoor environments of buildings and plant facilities. Conclusions are as follows. (1) In building mechanical system research fields, twenty studies were reported for achieving effective design of the mechanical systems, and also for maximizing the energy efficiency of buildings. The topics of the studies included energy performance, HVAC system, ventilation, renewable energies, etc. Proposed designs, performance tests using numerical methods and experiments provide useful information and key data which could be help for improving the energy efficiency of the buildings. (2) The field of architectural environment is mostly focused on indoor environment and building energy. The main researches of indoor environment are related to the ventilated cavity of curtain-wall system for enhancing insulation and preventing condensation, the improvement plans of condensation defect examples in apartment building and the calculation method for the transmitted solar irradiance using the total horizontal irradiance. The subjects of building energy are worked on the energy consumption characteristics in office buildings, energy performance analysis for energy saving potentials in a hospital building, outdoor air cooling system operated with load prediction, building energy efficiency rating chang...
