  1. 1. Direct Ground Cooling Systems for Office Buildings

    Author : Taha Arghand; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : Ground heat exchangers; Energy renovation; Renewable energy; GeoTABS; Active chilled beams; Geocooling systems; TABS; ground-coupled cooling; Passive ground cooling; Thermal comfort; Direct ground cooling; Energy efficiency; Boreholes; Ceiling cooling panels; High-temperature cooling; Optimization; Comfort cooling;

    Abstract : The solving of crucial global energy challenges hinges on improving energy efficiency in building energy systems. Accomplishing energy-efficiency targets often entails incorporating sustainable energy sources into the energy supply system. READ MORE

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

    Author : Bengt Bergsten; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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

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

    Author : Bengt Bergsten; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    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.

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

    Author : Torbjörn Lindholm; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : 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

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

    Author : Helena Bülow-Hübe; Energi och ByggnadsDesign; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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. READ MORE
