  1. 1. Evaporative Cooling Tower and Chilled Beams. Design Aspects for Cooling in Office Buildings in Northern Europe

    Author : Bengt Bergsten; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; pilot plant; cooling tower; simulation; low energy cooling; cooling tower model; free cooling; chilled beams; evaporative cooling; commercial buildings; hydronic cooling system;

    Abstract : The purpose of this thesis is to examine a comfort cooling system consisting of a hydronic cooling system with an evaporative cooling tower and chilled beams. The system has no conventional chiller. READ MORE

  2. 2. Free cooling in commercial buildings. Application with evaporative cooling tower and chilled beams

    Author : Bengt Bergsten; [2004]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cooling tower; commercial buildings; simulation; low energy cooling; evaporative cooling; hydronic cooling system; internal heat gain; free cooling; chilled beams; methodology;

    Abstract : The use of electricity in commercial buildings has increased over the last decades. One major cause is the rapid escalation of air conditioning equipment together with a growth of internal heat gains originating mainly from an increased amount of office equipment, which also use electric energy, and high levels of solar irradiation.

  3. 3. Evaporative and Desiccant Cooling Techniques Feasibility When Applied to Air Conditioning

    Author : Torbjörn Lindholm; [2000]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; desiccant wheel; desiccant cooling; evaporative cooling; dehumidification; air-conditioning; HVAC; comfort;

    Abstract : This thesis describes evaporative and desiccant cooling processes for air-conditioning purposes, i.e. for the removal of surplus heat from premises by the supply of cooled ventilation air. These cooling processes can replace the conventional method of cooling ventilation air involving the use of refrigerating machinery. READ MORE

  4. 4. Energy Efficient Window Systems. Effects on Energy Use and Daylight in Buildings

    University dissertation from Lund University, Lund Institute of Technology, Division of Energy and Building Design, P.O. Box 118, SE-221 00 LUND, Sweden

    Author : Helena Bülow-Hübe; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; simulation; thermal transmittance; solar energy transmittance; shading device; solar protection; cooling; heating; energy demand; building; low-emittance coating; window; glazing; comfort; user aspects; operative temperature; Architecture; Building construction; Byggnadsteknik; daylight; perception; interior design; Arkitektur; inredningsarkitektur; Energy research; Energiforskning;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with energy-efficient windows in Swedish buildings. Parametric studies were performed in the dynamic energy simulation tool Derob-LTH in order to study the effects of window choices on energy use and indoor climate for both residential and office buildings.

  5. 5. Thermal models of buildings : determination of temperatures, heating and cooling loads : theories, models and computer programs

    University dissertation from Department of Building Science, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Kurt Källblad; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Building construction; Computer Programs; Windows; Infiltration; Comfort; Walls; Indoor Climate; Climate; Ventilation; Cooling Load; Heating Load; Buildings; Thermal Models; Building Physics; Energy; Byggnadsteknik;

    Abstract : The need to estimate indoor temperatures, heating or cooling load and energy requirements for buildings arises in many stages of a buildings life cycle, e.g. at the early layout stage, during the design of a building and for energy retrofitting planning. Other purposes are to meat the authorities requirements given in building codes. READ MORE
