Optimizing the cost and energy performance of district cooling system with the low delta-T syndrome
Almost every chilled water system is affected by the low delta-T syndrome in which the supply and return chilled water temperatures falls short of the design level, particularly at low loads. This results in inefficient chillers and higher energy consumption of the chil... View more
