9 Typical centrifugal compressor. 517 The energy efficiency ratio (EER), which is the ratio of the cooling capacity (Btu/h) to the electric power input (W), is sometimes used to rate reciprocating and scroll compressors in air-cooled chillers and direct-expansion refrigeration units. ). This information, normally provided by chiller manufacturers, is useful in selecting chillers for different applications. 61 kW/RT at 70 percent load. If based on the expected load profile of the building, the chiller is going to operate only for a short period of time at 100 percent load and most of the time at 70 percent load, then chiller B would be a better option due to its superior performance at the operating point that will be most frequently encountered.

If these data are not available, a kWh consumption meter can be used to compute the electricity consumption of the chiller. Next, using manufacturers’ efficiency data, the kWh consumption for the proposed water-cooled chiller can be estimated. The difference between present (3915 kWh) and proposed (1803 kWh) total daily kWh consumption gives the daily savings (2112 kWh). Additional savings will also result from reduction in peak power demand if the peaks for power usage and cooling load coincide.

Commonly applied control strategy using cooling load and chilled water temperature (Fig. 20). In this system, the cooling load is calculated using the temperature difference for chilled water (T2 – T1) and the chilled water flow rate.
