Abstract


The cold output for the heat-moisture treatment of ambient air in air conditioning systems depends on its parameters (temperature and relative humidity), which vary significantly during operation. To determine the installed (design) cooling capacity of air conditioning system chillers, it is proposed to use a reduction in fuel consumption of a power plant or cooling capacity generation following its current conditioning spending over a certain period, since both of these indicators characterize the efficiency of using the installed cooling capacities of the air conditioning system. To extend the results of the investigation to a wide range of air conditioning units, two methods were used to determine the design cooling capacity (refrigerating capacity): by the maximum annual value and by the maximum growth rate of the efficiency indicator. The first method allows choosing the design cooling capacity, which provides a maximum annual reduction in the specific fuel consumption due to air cooling or maximum cooling capacity generation, which is necessary for air cooling following current climatic conditions. The second method allows determining the minimum design (installed) cooling capacity of chillers, which provides the maximum rate of reduction in fuel consumption by the power plant and the increment in the annual cooling capacity generation following the installed cooling capacity of chillers. The efficiency of air conditioning systems was analyzed for different climatic conditions: a temperate climate using the example of Voznesensk city (Ukraine) and the subtropical climate of Nanjing city (China). It is shown that the design cooling capacity values calculated by both indicators of its use efficiency are the same for the same climatic conditions. Wherein, if to determine the design cooling capacity by both methods - by the maximum annual value and the maximum rate of growth of the indicator, its values turned out to be quite close for tropical climatic conditions and somewhat different for a temperate climate.
