No of Pages: 374 Pages
Size: 39 MB
File Format: PDF
Book Description:
District Heating Guide provides design guidance for all major aspects of district heating systems, including central heating plants, distribution systems, and consumer interconnections, for both steam and hot-water systems. It draws on the expertise of an extremely diverse international team with current involvement in the industry and hundreds of years of combined experience. In addition to design guidance, this book also includes a chapter dedicated to planning, with information on cogeneration of heat and electric power as well as the integration of thermal storage into a district heating system. Guidance on operations and maintenance is also provided to help operators ensure that systems function as intended.

In addition, examples are presented where appropriate, and three detailed case studies are included in an appendix. This guide is a useful resource for both the inexperienced designer as well as those immersed in the industry, such as consulting engineers with campus specialization, utility engineers, district heating system operating engineers, central plant design engineers, and steam and hot-water system designers. District Heating Guide fills a worldwide need for modern and complete design guidance for district heating systems.

Book Description:
This second edition of Load Calculation Applications Manual is an in-depth, applications-oriented reference that provides a clear understanding of the state of the art in heating and cooling load calculation methods, plus the tool and resources needed to implement them in practice.

Updates for this edition reflect in information from the 2013 ASHRAE Handbook—Fundamentals,
including lighting, materials, and equipment used in buildings today, as well as new methods available since the first edition.

  • New internal heat gain data for office equipment
  • New methods and data for the effects of internal shading on solar heat gains
  • New data on heat gains from kitchen equipment, based on experimental measurements
  • New weather data for more than 6,000 stations worldwide.
  • A new ASHRAE clear-sky model, applicable worldwide
  • Improved methods for generating design day temperature profiles
  • A major revision of thermal properties data for building materials

This essential engineering reference begins with an overview of heat transfer processes in buildings and a discussion of how they are analyzed together to determine the HVAC load. Later chapters give in-depth coverage of the radiant time series method (RTSM) and heat balance method (HBM) theory and application, systems and psychrometrics, and heating loads, with extensive, step-by-step examples.
