Effective Cooling Load Control
The cooling load is configured to select the necessary HVAC equipment with the appropriate cooling capacity to extract environmental heat from the target area. The systems draw upon a promising degree of methodologies, including: heat balance, radiant time series, cooling load temperature difference, transfer function, and sol-air temperature. A course of action is then conscribed in reference to the steady or dynamic conditions of the cooling load, with varying degrees of influence between the two conditions.
Equipment efficiency therefore, plays a substantial role in determining the magnitude of heat retention within a structure.
- Solar radiation through transparent surfaces.
- Heat conduction through exterior walls and roofs.
- Heat conduction through ceilings, floors, and interior partitions.
- Heat generated in the space by occupants, lights, and appliances.
- Energy transfer through direct-with-space ventilation and infiltration of outdoor air.
- Miscellaneous heats gains.
Adequate understanding of self-contained systems and subsystems, along with their interactions allows business to make the most out of the available opportunities for energy savings.
