Desiccant Assisted Cooling: Fundamentals and Applications

(s): Carlos Eduardo Leme Nobrega and Nisio Carvalho Lobo Brum
Publisher: springer
Year: 2014
No of Pages: 281 Pages
Edition: 1st edition
Size: 6.5 MB
File Format: PDF
Book Description:
The increasing concern with indoor air quality has led to air-quality standards with increased ventilation rates. Although increasing the volume flow rate of outside air is advisable from the perspective of air-quality, it is detrimental to energy consumption, since the outside air has to be brought to the comfort condition before it is insufflated to the conditioned ambient. Moreover, the humidity load carried within outside air has challenging HVAC engineers to design cooling units which are able to satisfactorily handle both sensible and latent contributions to the thermal load. This constitutes a favorable scenario for the use of solid desiccants to assist the cooling units. In fact, desiccant wheels have been increasingly applied by HVAC designers, allowing distinct processes for the air cooling and dehumidification. In fact, the ability of solid desiccants in moisture removal is effective enough to allow the use of evaporative coolers, in opposition to the traditional vapor-compression cycle, resulting in an ecologically sound system which uses only water as the refrigerant.

Desiccant Assisted Cooling: Fundamentals and Applications presents different approaches to the mathematical modeling and simulation of desiccant wheels, as well as applications in thermal comfort and humidity controlled environments. Experts in the field discuss topics from enthalpy, lumped models for heat and mass transfer, and desiccant assisted radiant cooling systems, among others.

Aimed at air-conditioning engineers and thermal engineering researchers, this book can also be used by graduate level students and lecturers in the field.

Proceedings of the 8th International Symposium on Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (3 Volumes)


(s): Li.Angui, Zhu. Yingxin and Li. Yuguo
Publisher: springer
Year: 2014
File Format: PDF
Book Description:
-Recent research and development covering different aspects of HVAC systems and components, with a focus on building energy consumption, energy efficiency and indoor environment in the world
-Started from 1991, now it is a No. 8 international conference in the series

Proceedings of the 8th International Symposium on Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning is based on the 8th International Symposium of the same name (ISHVAC2013), which took place in Xi’an on October 19-21, 2013. The conference series was initiated at Tsinghua University in 1991 and has since become the premier international HVAC conference initiated in China, playing a significant part in the development of HVAC and indoor environmental research and industry around the world. This international conference provided an exclusive opportunity for policy-makers, designers, researchers, engineers and managers to share their experience. Considering the recent attention on building energy consumption and indoor environments, ISHVAC2013 provided a global platform for discussing recent research on and developments in different aspects of HVAC systems and components, with a focus on building energy consumption, energy efficiency and indoor environments. These categories span a broad range of topics, and the proceedings provide readers with a good general overview of recent advances in different aspects of HVAC systems and related research. As such, they offer a unique resource for further research and a valuable source of information for those interested in the subject.

The proceedings are intended for researchers, engineers and graduate students in the fields of Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC), indoor environments, energy systems, and building information and management.

Refrigeration Commissioning Guide for Commercial and Industrial Systems

(s): ASHRAE and the U.S. Department of Energy
Year: 2014
No of Pages: 142
Size: 9 MB
File Format: PDF
Book Description:
The first of its kind, Refrigeration Commissioning Guide for Commercial and Industrial Systems provides guidance to owners and managers of commercial and industrial facilities that use refrigeration systems to help ensure that project requirements are met and owners’ expectations are achieved. For commercial facility owners and managers, this means improved profitability through lower operating and service costs as well as reduced product loss.

Because deficiencies in system design found at start-up are not easily resolved, maintenance managers or operators may deal with unnecessary shortcomings and expenses over the life of the facility. Commissioning helps project teams avoid these “surprises” by establishing a consistent, stepwise process that helps “get it right the first time.” The commissioning process starts with the initial planning and design and continues through construction, installation, start-up, and the first year of system operation. Commissioning also sets the stage for ongoing servicing and maintenance of performance. The result is refrigeration systems that are easier and less expensive to install and maintain, with lower energy costs, minimized liabilities from refrigeration system leaks, and reduced loss of refrigerated product due to system failures or unreliable performance.

Using this Guide will help achieve cost-effective and cost-efficient refrigeration systems for new projects, expansions, remodels, and existing systems that simply need a tune-up. This Guide was developed through cooperation of ASHRAE and the U.S. Department of Energy.
