Description of a chilled-water system, including the basics, design strategies, and control issues. (2001)

Topics include:

  • Vapor-compression and absorption chiller types
  • Air-cooled vs. water-cooled condensers
  • Packaged vs. split components
  • Equipment rating standards (ARI 550, 590, and 560)
  • ASHRAE Standard 90.1
  • Components of a chilled-water system
  • Coil control (3-way valves, 2-way valves, face-and-bypass dampers)
  • Chiller plant design concepts (parallel, series, and primary-secondary or decoupled)
  • Combined energy (hybrid) plants
  • Low-flow systems
  • Variable-primary-flow (VPF) systems
  • Heat recovery
  • Sidecar arrangement
  • Free cooling (plate-and-frame heat exchanger, refrigerant migration)
  • Chilled-water system control (chiller sequencing, swing chiller, failure recovery, contingency planning, system optimization, and operator interface)
