  • 1. WatersideEnergy RecoveryRequirements, Design andApplication Mick Schwedler, PE manager Trane applications engineering © 2011 Ingersoll Rand
  • 2. reasons to useEnergy Recovery Required by code or standard Availability of simultaneous heating and cooling loads Economically justified  Reduces heating load  Reduces ancillary power Environmentally responsible  Reduces emissions  Eligible for “green” benefits (energy, water usage)
  • 3. ASHRAE 90.1-2010 (since 1999)Waterside Energy RecoveryIF … Facility operates 24 hours per day  Heat rejection exceeds 6 million Btu/hr (~ 450 tons)  Design service water heating load exceeds 1 million Btu/hrTHEN Required energy recovery is (smaller of):  60% of design heat rejection  Preheating water to 85°F
  • 4. types ofHeat-Recovery Chillers Single condenser (“bundle”) Dual condenser heat- standard  Equally sized condenser = recovery condenser bundles Auxiliary condenser heat-  Unequally sized standard condenser > recovery condenser bundles
  • 5. heat-recovery chillersSingle Condenserhelical-rotary (screw)compressor scroll compressor centrifugal compressor

  • 8. variable air volumeTempering Supply AirWhen required supply/primary airflow isless than minimum setting:  Reduce primary airflow to minimum  Let space temperature drift downward  Add heat to avoid overcooling 105°F (40.6°C) water often is sufficient Supply air is always dehumidified
  • 9. waterside heat recoveryTemperaturesService-water 85°F to 95°Fpreheating (29.4°C to 35°C)Space heating 105°F to 110F (40.6°C to 43.3C) source: 2008 ASHRAE Systems and Equipment Handbook

  • 11. waterside heat recoveryEffect on Chillers Compressor work is proportional to lift  “Lift” is pressure difference between evaporator and condenser  Warmer condenser water (for heat recovery) raises condenser pressure Changes in lift affect different compressors differently  Positive displacement  Centrifugal (full load vs. part load)
