For stand alone facilities which need small to medium amount of cooling, it is recommended to build chiller plant with air cooled chillers in order to serve the facility.
Chiller plants are commonly used in Business Centers, Towers, Commercial Buildings, Hospitals, Data Centers, Factories and others.
Chiller plants are optimized to minimize the initial costs, power consumption, and cost of operation & maintenance.
The optimization process starts from understanding the facility requirements, peak loads, and the severity of stopover.
There are many configurations to be considered from design stage for mechanical, electrical and control systems for the chiller plants, such as primary & secondary circuits, constant & variable flowrates, De-Coupler arrangement, sizing of thermal storage tanks, control valves, and process sensors.
