Principles of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning with Worked Examples

(s): Nihal E Wijeysundera
Publisher: World Scientific Publishing Co
Year: 2015
No of Pages: 707 Pages
Edition: 1st edition
Size: 3.6 MB
File Format: PDF

Book Description:

This book presents the most current design procedures in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC), available in handbooks, like the ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers) Handbook-2013 Fundamentals, in a way that is easier for students to understand. Every effort is made to explain in detail the fundamental physical principles that form the basis of the various design procedures. 

A novel feature of the book is the inclusion of about 15 worked examples in each chapter, carefully chosen to highlight the diverse aspects of HVAC design. The solutions to the worked examples clarify the physical principles behind the design method. In addition, there are problems at the end of each chapter for which numerical answers are provided. The book includes a series of MATLAB programs that may be used to solve realistic HVAC design problems, which in general, require extensive and repetitive calculations.

District Cooling: Theory and Practice (Heat Transfer) 1st Edition

(s): Alaa A. Olama
Publisher: CRC Press
Year: 2016
No of Pages: 109 Pages
Edition: 1st edition
Size: 5 MB
File Format: PDF

Book Description:

DISTRICT COOLING: THEORY and PRACTICE provides a unique study of an energy cogeneration system, set up to bring chilled water to buildings (offices, apartment houses, and factories) needing cooling for air conditioning and refrigeration. In winter, the source for the cooling can often be sea water, so it is a cheaper resource than using electricity to run compressors for cooling. The related technology of District Heating has been an established engineering practice for many years, but District Cooling is a relatively new technology now being implemented in various parts of the world, including the USA, Arab Emirates and Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia. Existing books in the area are scarce and do not address many of the crucial issues facing nations with high overall air temperatures, many of which are developing District Cooling plans using sea water. DISTRICT COOLING: THEORY & PRACTICE integrates the theory behind district cooling planning with the practical engineering approaches so it can serve the policy makers, engineers, and planners whose efforts have to be coordinated and closely managed to make such systems effective and affordable. In times of rising worldwide temperatures, District Cooling is a way to provide needed cooling with energy conservation and sustainability. This book will be the most up-to-date and comprehensive study on the subject, with Case Studies describing real projects in detail.

Renewable heating and cooling technologies and applications

(s): Gerhard Stryi-Hipp
Publisher: Elsevier
Year: 2016
No of Pages: 273 Pages
Edition: 1 st edition
Size: 25.4 MB
File Format: PDF

Book Description:

Renewable Heating and Cooling: Technologies and Applications present the latest information on the generation of heat for industry and domestic purposes, an area where a significant proportion of total energy is consumed. In Europe, this figure is estimated to be almost 50%, with the majority of heat generated by the consumption of fossil fuels. As there is a pressing need to increase the uptake of renewable heating and cooling (RHC) to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, this book provides a comprehensive and authoritative overview of the topic.

Part One introduces key RHC technologies and discusses RHC in the context of global heating and cooling demand, featuring chapters on solar thermal process heat generation, deep geothermal energy, and solar cooling technologies. Part Two explores enabling technologies, special applications, and case studies with detailed coverage of thermal energy storage, hybrid systems, and renewable heating for RHC, along with case studies in China and Sweden.

Advanced District Heating and Cooling (DHC) Systems 1st Edition

(s): Robin Wiltshire
Publisher: Elsevier
Year: 2015
No of Pages: 341 Pages
Edition: 1st edition
Size: 17 MB
File Format: PDF

Book Description:

Advanced District Heating and Cooling (DHC) Systems presents the latest information on the topic, providing valuable information on the distribution of centrally generated heat or cold energy to buildings, usually in the form of space heating, cooling, and hot water.

As DHC systems are more efficient and less polluting than individual domestic or commercial heating and cooling systems, the book provides an introduction to DHC, including its potential contribution to reducing carbon dioxide emissions, then reviews thermal energy generation for DHC, including fossil fuel-based technologies, those based on renewables, and surplus heat valorization. Final sections address methods to improve the efficiency of DHC.
