Which factors will affect the chiller sizing process?

An industrial chiller protects processing equipment despite costing a small fraction of most of these facilities. It also increases production, specifically enhancing accuracy and speed of production in food, beverage, and pharmaceutical among other industries. Therefore, it is a no brainer that the[..]

Basics of fogging system for inlet air-cooling

Hot and humid summer weather affects turbine performance substantially, yet this is the most critical time for power plant service to users. A knee-jerk reaction would be to enhance installed turbine capacity to offset the deficit created by subdued performance and increased power demand. Instead of[..]

Indicators and improvements for power plant efficiency

The average temperature for most tropical regions is about 35° C. This and the accompanying high humidity spells doom for power plants in such regions unless something is done to counter the effects. Large scale power-generation relies on gas turbines, which have limitations at higher temperatures. [..]

Chiller plant design calculation: Detailed Cooling Profile Simulation

Less than three decades ago, full load kW/ton was still a widely used metric of chiller efficiency. It was only in the late 1980s that stakeholders in the industry realized that this indication was incomplete because full load conditions are rare in real life situations. That was the beginning of be[..]

Thermal Energy Storage

Tank heater accumulation of thermal energy as supply security systems

During the 1970s and early 1980s, the world witnessed the worst oil crises ever following an oil embargo imposed by producers from the Middle East. Due to power reliability problems that were triggered by these events, chilled water storage systems were born. District cooling itself is a very old te[..]
