Janghyun Kim (JK) joined NREL in January 2019 and works in the Commercial Buildings Research Group. His areas of expertise and interest include developing and analyzing advanced HVAC system models, as well as building energy models.
Prior to joining NREL, he completed a Ph.D. at Purdue University. His dissertation covers extensive experimental studies for characterizing the performance of passive chilled beams, in both laboratory settings and in field studies; development of passive chilled beam performance prediction models; integration of these models into building simulation models/tools; and the use of building simulation for overall assessment of different passive chilled beam system configurations in different climates in order to provide guidelines for appropriate applications.
