    Solar Air Conditioning Solar Air Conditioning Document Transcript

    • SOLAR AIR CONDITIONINGSolar air conditioning refers to any air conditioning (cooling) system that uses solar power.This can be done through passive solar, solar thermal energy conversion and photovoltaic conversion(sun to electricity). The U.S. Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007[1] created 2008 through2012 funding for a new solar air conditioning research and development program, which shoulddevelop and demonstrate multiple new technology innovations and mass production economies ofscale. Solar air conditioning will play an increasing role in zero energy and energy-plus buildingsdesign.[who?]Contents • 1 Solar A/C using desiccants • 2 Passive solar cooling • 3 Solar Closed Loop Absorption & Adsorption Cooling • 4 Photovoltaic (PV) solar cooling • 5 Geothermal cooling • 6 Zero energy buildings • 7 See also • 8 References • 9 External linksSolar A/C using desiccantsAir can be passed over common, solid desiccants (like silica gel or zeolite) to draw moisture from theair to allow an efficient evaporative cooling cycle. The desiccant is then regenerated by using solarthermal energy to dry it out, in a cost-effective, low-energy-consumption, continuously repeating cycle.[2] A photovoltaic system can power a low-energy air circulation fan, and a motor to slowly rotate alarge disk filled with desiccant.Energy recovery ventilation systems provide a controlled way of ventilating a home while minimizingenergy loss. Air is passed through an "enthalpy wheel" (often using silica gel) to reduce the cost ofheating ventilated air in the winter by transferring heat from the warm inside air being exhausted to thefresh (but cold) supply air. In the summer, the inside air cools the warmer incoming supply air toreduce ventilation cooling costs.[3] This low-energy fan-and-motor ventilation system can be cost-effectively powered by photovoltaics, with enhanced natural convection exhaust up a solar chimney -the downward incoming air flow would be forced convection (advection).A desiccant like calcium chloride can be mixed with water to create an attractive recirculating waterfall,that dehumidifies a room using solar thermal energy to regenerate the liquid, and a PV-powered low-rate water pump[4]The potential for near-future exploitation of this type of innovative solar-powered desiccant airconditioning technology is great.[citation needed]
    • Active solar cooling wherein solar thermal collectors provide input energy for a desiccant coolingsystem: A packed column air-liquid contactor has been studied in application to air dehumidificationand regeneration in solar air conditioning with liquid desiccants. A theoretical model has beendeveloped to predict the performance of the device under various operating conditions. Computersimulations based on the model are presented which indicate the practical range of air to liquid fluxratios and associated changes in air humidity and desiccant concentration. An experimental apparatushas been constructed and experiments performed with monoethylene glycol (MEG) and lithiumbromide as desiccants. MEG experiments have yielded inaccurate results and have pointed out somepractical problems associated with the use of glycols. LiBr experiments show very good agreementwith the theoretical model. Preheating of the air is shown to greatly enhance desiccant regeneration.The packed column yields good results as a dehumidifier/regenerator, provided pressure drop can bereduced with the use of suitable packing.[5]Passive solar coolingMain articles: Passive cooling and Passive solarIn this type of cooling solar thermal energy is not used directly to create a cold environment or driveany direct cooling processes. Instead, solar building design aims at slowing the rate of heat transfer intoa building in the summer, and improving the removal of unwanted heat. It involves a goodunderstanding of the mechanisms of heat transfer: heat conduction, convective heat transfer, andthermal radiation, the latter primarily from the sun.For example, a sign of poor thermal design is an attic that gets hotter in summer than the peak outsideair temperature. This can be significantly reduced or eliminated with a cool roof or a green roof, whichcan reduce the roof surface temperature by 70 °F (40 °C) in summer. A radiant barrier and an air gapbelow the roof will block about 97% of downward radiation from roof cladding heated by the sun.Passive solar cooling is much easier to achieve in new construction than by adapting existing buildings.There are many design specifics involved in passive solar cooling. It is a primary element of designinga zero energy building in a hot climate.Solar Closed Loop Absorption & Adsorption CoolingMain article: Absorption heat pumpThe following are common technologies in use for solar thermal closed loop air conditioning. • Absorption: NH3/H2O or Ammonia/Water • Absorption: Water/Lithium Bromide • Absorption: Water/Lithium Chloride • Adsorption: Water/Silica Gel or Water/Zeolite • Adsorption: Methanol/Activated Carbon[6]Active solar cooling uses solar thermal collectors to provide thermal energy to drive thermally drivenchillers (usually adsorption or absorption chillers).[7] The Sopogy concentrating solar thermal collector,for example, provides solar thermal heat by concentrating the sun’s energy on a collection tube and
    • heating the recirculated heat transfer fluid within the system.[8] The generated heat is then used inconjunction with absorption chillers to provide a renewable source of industrial cooling.[9]There are multiple alternatives to compressor-based chillers that can reduce energy consumption, withless noise and vibration. Solar thermal energy can be used to efficiently cool in the summer, and alsoheat domestic hot water and buildings in the winter. Single, double or triple iterative absorption coolingcycles are used in different solar-thermal-cooling system designs. The more cycles, the more efficientthey are.Efficient absorption chillers require water of at least 190 °F (88 °C). Common, inexpensive flat-platesolar thermal collectors only produce about 160 °F (71 °C) water. In large scale installations there areseveral projects successful both technical and economical in operation world wide including e.g. on theheadquarters of Caixa Geral de Depósitos in Lisbon with 1579m² solar collectors and 545 kW coolingpower or on the Olympic Sailing Village in Qingdao/China. In 2011 the most powerful plant atSingapores new constructed United World College will be commissioned (1500 kW).These projects have shown that flat plate solar collectors specially developed for temperatures over 200°F (featuring double glazing, increased backside insulation, etc.) can be effective and cost efficient.[10]Evacuated-tube solar panels can be used as well. Concentrating solar collectors required for absorptionchillers are less effective in hot humid, cloudy environments, especially where the overnight lowtemperature and relative humidity are uncomfortably high. Where water can be heated well above190 °F (88 °C), it can be stored and used when the sun is not shining.The Audubon Environmental Center in Los Angeles has an example solar air conditioning installation.[11] The Southern California Gas Co. (The Gas Company), and its sister utility, San Diego Gas &Electric (SDG&E), are also testing the practicality of solar thermal cooling systems at their EnergyResource Center (ERC) in Downey, California. Solar Collectors from Sopogy and HelioDynamics wereinstalled on the rooftop at the ERC and are producing cooling for the building’s air conditioningsystem.[9]In the late 19th century, the most common phase change refrigerant material for absorption cooling wasa solution of ammonia and water. Today, the combination of lithium and bromide is also in commonuse. One end of the system of expansion/condensation pipes is heated, and the other end gets coldenough to make ice. Originally, natural gas was used as a heat source in the late 19th century. Today,propane is used in recreational vehicle absorption chiller refrigerators. Innovative hot water solarthermal energy collectors can also be used as the modern "free energy" heat source.For 150 years, absorption chillers have been used to make ice (before the electric light bulb wasinvented).[12] This ice can be stored and used as an "ice battery" for cooling when the sun is not shining,as it was in the 1995 Hotel New Otani in Tokyo Japan.[13] Mathematical models are available in thepublic domain for ice-based thermal energy storage performance calculations.[14]The ISAAC Solar Icemaker is an intermittent solar ammonia-water absorption cycle. The ISAAC usesa parabolic trough solar collector and a compact and efficient design to produce ice with no fuel orelectric input, and with no moving parts.[15]Makers include SOLID [16] and Mirroxx [17] for commercial installations and ClimateWell,[18] Fagor-Rotartica, Sopogy, SorTech and Daikin mostly for residential systems.
    • Photovoltaic (PV) solar coolingMain article: Photovoltaic electricityPhotovoltaics can provide the power for any type of electrically powered cooling be it conventionalcompressor-based or adsorption/absorption-based, though the most common implementation is withcompressors which is the least efficient form of electrical cooling methods.For small residential and small commercial cooling (less than 5 MWh/yr) PV-powered cooling hasbeen the most frequently implemented solar cooling technology. The reason for this is debated, butcommonly suggested reasons include incentive structuring, lack of residential-sized equipment forother solar-cooling technologies, the advent of more efficient electrical coolers, or ease of installationcompared to other solar-cooling technologies (like radiant cooling).Since PV coolings cost effectiveness depends largely on the cooling equipment and given the poorefficiencies in electrical cooling methods until recently it has not been cost effective without subsidies.Pairing PV with 14 SEER and less coolers is the least efficient of all solar cooling methods. Using moreefficient electrical cooling methods and allowing longer payback schedules is changing that scenario.For example, a 100,000 BTU U.S. Energy Star rated air conditioner with a high seasonal energyefficiency ratio (SEER) of 14 requires around 7 kW of electric power for full cooling output on a hotday. This would require over a 7 kW solar photovoltaic electricity generation system (with morning-to-evening, and seasonal solar tracker capability to handle the 47-degree[vague] summer-to-winter differencein solar altitude). The photovoltaics would only produce full output during the sunny part of clear days.A solar-tracking 7 kW photovoltaic system would probably have an installed price well over $20,000USD (with PV equipment prices currently falling at roughly 17% per year). Infrastructure, wiring,mounting, and NEC code costs may add up to an additional cost; for instance a 3120 watt solar panelgrid tie system has a panel cost of $0.99/watt hour peak, but still costs ~$2.2/watt hour peak. Othersystems of different capacity cost even more, let alone battery backup systems, which cost even more.Due to the advent of net metering allowed by utility companies, your photovoltaic system can produceenough energy in the course of the year to completely offset the cost of the electricity used to run airconditioning, depending on the amount of your electric costs you wish to offset.A more efficient air conditioning system would require a smaller, less-expensive photovoltaic system.A high-quality geothermal heat pump installation can have a SEER in the range of 20 (+/-). A 100,000BTU SEER 20 air conditioner would require less than 5 kW while operating.Newer and lower power technology including reverse inverter DC heat pumps can achieve SEERratings up to 26, the Fujitsu Halycon line being one notable example, but its requirements of 200-250vAC input makes its use in the USA in smaller grids newer.There are new non-compressor-based electrical air conditioning systems with a SEER above 20 comingon the market. New versions of phase-change indirect evaporative coolers use nothing but a fan and asupply of water to cool buildings without adding extra interior humidity (such as at McCarran AirportLas Vegas Nevada). In dry arid climates with relative humidity below 45% (about 40% of the
    • continental U.S.) indirect evaporative coolers can achieve a SEER above 20, and up to SEER 40. A100,000 BTU indirect evaporative cooler would only need enough photovoltaic power for thecirculation fan (plus a water supply).A less-expensive partial-power photovoltaic system can reduce (but not eliminate) the monthly amountof electricity purchased from the power grid for air conditioning (and other uses). With American stategovernment subsidies of $2.50 to $5.00 USD per photovoltaic watt,[19] the amortized cost of PV-generated electricity can be below $0.15 per kWh. This is currently cost effective in some areas wherepower company electricity is now $0.15 or more. Excess PV power generated when air conditioning isnot required can be sold back to the power grid in many locations, which can reduce (or eliminate)annual net electricity purchase requirement. (See Zero energy building)The key to solar air conditioning cost effectiveness is in lowering the cooling requirement for thebuilding. Superior energy efficiency can be designed into new construction (or retrofitted to existingbuildings). Since the U.S. Department of Energy was created in 1977, their Weatherization AssistanceProgram[20] has reduced heating-and-cooling load on 5.5 million low-income affordable homes anaverage of 31%. A hundred million American buildings still need improved weatherization. Carelessconventional construction practices are still producing inefficient new buildings that needweatherization when they are first occupied.It is fairly simple to reduce the heating-and-cooling requirement for new construction by one half. Thiscan often be done at no additional net cost, since there are cost savings for smaller air conditioningsystems and other benefits.Since U.S. President Carter created the Solar Energy Tax Incentives in 1978, hundreds of thousands ofpassive solar and zero energy buildings have demonstrated 70% to 90% heating-and-cooling loadreductions (and even 100% reduction in some climates). In contrast, well over 25 million newconventional U.S. buildings have ignored well-documented energy efficiency techniques since 1978.As a result, U.S. buildings waste more energy (39%) than transportation or industry.[21] If theirarchitects and builders had listened to the U.S. Department Of Energy presentations at the NationalEnergy Expositions three decades ago, American buildings could be using $200 billion USD lessenergy per year today.[citation needed]Geothermal coolingEarth sheltering or Earth cooling tubes can take advantage of the ambient temperature of the Earth toreduce or eliminate conventional air conditioning requirements. In many climates where the majority ofhumans live, they can greatly reduce the build up of undesirable summer heat, and also help removeheat from the interior of the building. They increase construction cost, but reduce or eliminate the costof conventional air conditioning equipment.Earth cooling tubes are not cost effective in hot humid tropical environments where the ambient Earthtemperature approaches human temperature comfort zone. A solar chimney or photovoltaic-poweredfan can be used to exhaust undesired heat and draw in cooler, dehumidified air that has passed byambient Earth temperature surfaces. Control of humidity and condensation are important design issues.A geothermal heat pump uses ambient Earth temperature to improve SEER for heat and cooling. Adeep well recirculates water to extract ambient Earth temperature (typically at 6 to 10 gallons[vague] per
    • minute). Ambient earth temperature is much lower than peak summer air temperature. And, muchhigher than the lowest extreme winter air temperature. Water is 25 times more thermally conductivethan air, so it is much more efficient than an outside air heat pump, (which become less effective whenthe outside temperature drops).The same type of geothermal well can be used without a heat pump but with greatly diminished results.Ambient Earth temperature water is pumped through a shrouded radiator (like an automobile radiator).Air is blown across the radiator, which cools without a compressor-based air conditioner. Photovoltaicsolar electric panels produce electricity for the water pump and fan—eliminating conventional air-conditioning utility bills. This concept is cost-effective, as long as the location has ambient Earthtemperature below the human thermal comfort zone. (Not the tropics)Zero energy buildingsGoals of zero energy buildings include sustainable, green building technologies that can significantlyreduce, or eliminate, net annual energy bills. The supreme achievement is the totally off the gridautonomous building that does not have to be connected to utility companies. In hot climates withsignificant degree days of cooling requirement, leading-edge solar air conditioning will be anincreasingly important critical success factor.See also • Absorption heat pump • Air Conditioning • Concentrating solar power • Desiccant • Earth cooling tubes • Earth sheltering • EnerWorks • Geosolar • Geothermal heat pump (or Geothermal exchange heat pump) • HVAC • International Solar Energy Society (ISES) • Passive cooling • Passive house • Passive solar building design • Passive solar • Photovoltaics • Solar power • Solar powered refrigerator • Solar hot water • Solar thermal energy • Zero energy buildingReferences
