The presentations focus is on design considerations for Water Side Economizers. It begins with a review of the key requirements and exceptions for water side economizers as prescribed in the ASHRAE Energy Standard 90.1-2010. Several design approaches will be reviewed highlighting the pros and cons of each. The reviews will include system designs and piping arrangements that include non-integrated and integrated economizers, cooling tower sizing strategies and winterization considerations, gasket plate heat exchangers selection and sizing considerations, and closed circuit cooling tower considerations. The presentation will also include operational considerations for entering and exiting economizer mode to minimize equipment problems and overall operating costs.
