SIZING AN AIR-BASED CHILLER TO AIR CONDITIONED A COLLEGE BUILDING (UNISUL)
Palavras-chave:Air cooled chiller, air conditioning, active chilled beam, Air Handling Units
In this paper, the usage of an air-based water-cooled chiller is studied to air condition a college building. The chilled water flows to an air handling unit located outside and an active chilled beam located inside each room. A short explanation on each component is made, including a comparison between systems. The study is based on norms established to properly scale an air conditioning system. The result showed that this chiller system will have a high energy cost if operated on its max capacity every day for 230 days in a year, but it’s counter balanced as it will provide a high air condition standard, including enough air change and humidity, adequate temperature and provide temperature control to each room.
