The Society appreciates your choosing not to receive the printed Handbook if you can use the electronic version instead. Desiccant dehumidification of the air is achieved by inserting a rotating wheel in the air stream that needs to be dried. Plan for expansion, but don't size for it A change in building use or the incorporation of new technologies can lead to an increased demand for cooling. Use energy management controls systems to avoid unnecessary peak demand charges peak shaving and demand limiting.
Provides specific building examples to reinforce concepts discussed, i. Offers case studies and practical design considerations for residential and commercial buildings, leading to insight into design decisions, equipment options, and operations of water supply and drainage systems of a building.
To determine life cycle costs and benefits for lighting installations. Geothermal heat pump system on the Georgia Institute of Technology Campus Courtesy of U. May be one of several books used for Electrical and Mechanical Systems Design. Absorption chillers can be direct-fired, using natural gas or fuel oil, or indirect-fired.
Fuel Cells use chemical processes to generate electricity. Variable capacity cooling towers e. Shows students how to select and integrate plumbing components with site, building, foundations, structure, materials, finishes, and assemblies. org and in the Additions and Corrections section of this volume.
Emphasize communication between all members of the design team throughout the design process see WBDG. All electrical lighting fixtures were specified as LED for high efficiency purposes, using as little as 15 percent of the energy of conventional lighting with a life expectancy up to 50,000 hours.
At similar capacities, cast-iron boilers are more expensive than firetube or watertube boilers. Heating can be accomplished by heating the air within a space e. 6 for single-effect chillers, and 0. Details how to select and integrate plumbing components with site, building, foundations, structure, materials, finishes, and assemblies. Sizes for packaged watertube boilers range from small, low pressure units e. The water is pumped to air handling units to cool the air. Fan-powered VAV terminal units provide another method to improve air distribution at low load conditions.
Greatly oversized equipment operates less efficiently and costs more than properly sized equipment. Impact on Building Energy Performance Goals Employing high-performance HVAC equipment in conjunction with whole building design can result in significant energy savings.
Presents material in a concise and logical format.
However, note that highly utilizing high-performance HVAC equipment often requires more effort and more collaboration from the design team than a conventional, sequential approach.
These compressors can be powered by electric motors, fossil fuel engines, or turbines.
