I?m Italian and I am
not particularly familiar with the English lexicon to define HVAC systems. I?m
dealing with my first work of energy simulation for LEED certification. I?m
looking for a guide that explains the characteristics of the HVAC systems that
are listed in tables G3.1.1A and G3.1.1B of ASHRAE 90.1:2007. I would like to
find an explanation that represents the different HVAC systems also through
schematic graphic representation.

You can get an explanation of US hvac terms here:
http://wiki.ashrae.org/index.php/ASHRAEwiki

* descriptions hold true for most English speaking countries with
some nuances
* it's not comprehensive but is evolving
