In this paper, the mathematical model of a secondary system (fan-coil) of a HVAC equipment is described. This system was inserted into a computer code developed in Matlab/Simulink platform devoted to the analysis of buildings hygrothermal behavior and performance of closed-loop control systems. The model is presented in terms of state-space variables that represent the energy and mass balance for each component of the fan-coil. Results are presented in terms of a comparative analysis of the cooling coil temperature and external air ventilation rate effects on the room air psychrometrics state. Finally, the control system performance is presented for both temperature and relative humidity.
