  4. 4. GENERAL DESCRIPTIONS/ DEFINITIONS OF DISTRICT COOLING SYSTEM• District Cooling Systems (DCS) is a system which distribute chilled water or other media, usually provided from a dedicated cooling plant, to multiple buildings for air conditioning or other uses. OR• District Cooling System (DCS) can be defined as centralized production and distribution of chilled water from a cooling plant to residential, commercial and industrial facilities trough a network of underground pipes. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  5. 5. OBJECTIVE OF DCS To centralized productionof chilled water by using districtcooling plant. The generated chilled water will then be channeled to various building blocks thru pre- insulated seamless underground pipes. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  6. 6. WHAT IS DISTRICT COOLING?1. DC means the centralized production and distribution of cooling energy. Chilled water is delivered via an underground insulated pipeline to office, industrial and residential buildings to cool the indoor air of the buildings within a district. Specially designed units in each building then use this water to lower the temperature of air passing through the buildings ACS.1. The output of one cooling plant is enough to meet the cooling-energy demand of dozens of buildings. DC can be run on electricity or natural gas, and can use either regular water or seawater. Along with electricity and water, DC constitute a new form of energy service. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  7. 7. WHAT IS DISTRICT COOLING?3. DC is measured in refrigeration ton (RT) which is equivalent to 12000 BTUs per hour. RT is the unit measure for the amount of heat removed. RT is defined as the heat absorbed by one ton of ice (2000 pounds) causing it to melt completely by the end of one day (24 hours).3. DCS can replace any type of ACS, but primarily compete with air-cooled reciprocating chiller systems serving large buildings which consume large amounts of electricity. This ACS is subject to a difficult operating environment, including extreme heat, saline humidity and windborne sand. Over time, performance, efficiency and reliability suffer, leading to significant maintenance costs and ultimately to equipment replacement. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  8. 8. HISTORY OF DISTRICT COOLING1. The oldest district heating system was created in the early 14th century in Chaudes-Aigues Cantal - a village in France. This system distributed warm water through wooden pipes and it is still in use today.2. The first commercial district heating system was created by Birdsill Holly in Lockport, New York in 1877. Holly used the boiler as the central heat source and built a loop consisting of steam pipes, radiators, and even condensate return lines. His system started off with 14 customers. Only 3 years later, it served several factories as well as residential customers and had extended to a 3- mile loop.3. District cooling also has its roots in the 19th century. It was introduced as a scheme to distribute clean, cool air to houses through underground pipes. The first known district cooling system began operations at Denvers Colorado Automatic Refrigerator Company in late 1889. In the 1930s, large district cooling systems were created for Rockefeller Centre in New York City and for the U.S. Capital Buildings in Washington, D.C. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  9. 9. HOW DISTRICT COOLING WORKS?1. Chilled water is produced in a central plant and distributed via a system of pipes that can run underground, on the surface or over rooftops.2. Inside the buildings, these transmission pipes are normally connected to a conventional air handling unit or fan coil that allows the water to chill the air passing through.3. This means multiple chiller units placed locally are no longer required.4. Once the required thermal energy has been extracted from the cold water, this water is returned to the central plant to be re-chilled and re-circulated through the closed-loop piping system.5. This cooling system is more flexible and also operates with higher efficiency under all load conditions than traditional chillers. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ

  11. 11. WHY IS DISTRICT COOLING ENVIRONMENTAL FRIENDLY? District cooling helps the environment by increasing energy efficiency and reducing environmental emissions including air pollution, the greenhouse gas (GHG) carbon dioxide(CO2) and ozone-destroying refrigerants. District cooling can reduce annual CO2emissions by about 1 ton for every ton of district coolingrefrigeration demand served. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ

  17. 17. TYPE OF REFRIGERANTS FOR DCP• Brine, and propylene-glycol are the famous examples used in DCP.• Known as “secondary cooling media”, it is not really a refrigerant.• This type of heat transfer media is used for delivering cool temperature from air conditioner evaporator, to cooling coils.• These are used in very large air conditioning system, or “district cooling”.• The reasons are, to keep the maintenance cost, safety risk, and compressor breakdown, low.

  33. 33. DCS COMPONENTS• A typical DCS comprises the following components: 1. Central Chiller Plant – generate chilled water for cooling purposes 2. Distribution Network – distribute chilled water to buildings 3. User Station – interface with buildings own air-conditioning circuits. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  34. 34. 1. Central Chiller Plant – Chilled water is typically generated at the central chiller plant by compressor driven chillers, absorption chillers or other sources like ambient cooling or “free cooling” from deep lakes, rivers, aquifers or oceans. – Groups of large and energy-efficient water-cooled chillers are usually installed in a central chiller plant to take advantage of the economy of scale and the cooling demand diversity between different buildings within a district. – Sea water condensers or fresh water cooling towers can be utilized to reject waste heat from the central chillers. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  35. 35. 2. Distribution Network – District chilled water is distributed from the cooling source(s) to the user stations through supply pipes and is returned after extracting heat from the building’s secondary chilled water systems. – Pumps distribute the chilled water by creating a pressure differential between the supply and return lines. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  36. 36. 3. User Station – The interface between the district cooling system and the building cooling system is commonly referred to as user station. – The user station usually comprise of air handling units, heat exchanger and chilled water piping in the building. – A user station is required in each users building to connect the DCS distributed chilled water pipe to the building. – Inside the user station, devices called heat exchangers are installed to transfer heat between the chilled water supply of DCS and the air-conditioning system of the user building. – The user station could be designed for direct or indirect connection to the district cooling distribution system. – With direct connection, the district cooling water is distributed within the building directly to terminal equipment such as air handling and fan coil units, induction units, etc. – An indirect connection utilizes one or multiple heat exchangers in between the district system and the building system.

  46. 46. HEAT EXCHANGER (HE)• HE are used to transfer heat from one medium to another, such as from steam to hot water, or from water at a higher temperature to water at a lower temperature.• Two basic types of HE : – Shell and tube type – Plate type PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  47. 47. HEAT EXCHANGER (HE)1. SHELL-AND-TUBE TYPE (STT) – The STT of HE consists of a bundle of tubes in the shell. – Primary medium is either steam or water, which flows in the shell. – Secondary medium is always water, which flows through the tubes. – The tubes are partitioned to allow single or multiple passes to increase the temperature and the heat transfer. PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
  48. 48. HEAT EXCHANGER (HE)2. PLATE TYPE (PT) – PT HE composed of multiple, thin, slightly separated plates that have very large surface areas and fluid flow passages for heat transfer. – This stacked-plate arrangement can be more effective, in a given space, than the STT. – Advances in gasket and brazing technology have made the plate-type heat exchanger increasingly practical. – Large HE of this type are called plate-and-frame; when used in open loops, these heat exchangers are normally of the gasket type to allow periodic disassembly, cleaning, and inspection. – There are many types of permanently bonded plate heat exchangers, such as dip-brazed and vacuum-brazed plate varieties, and they are often specified for closed-loop applications such as refrigeration. – PT HE also differ in the types of plates that are used, and in the configurations of those plates. – Some plates may be stamped with "chevron" or other patterns, where PSA/ CB503/ PNNAZZ
