The guide is a comprehensive 96-page PDF manual which discusses various piping and control methods commonly used with commercial chilled water systems.
This Chiller Plant Design Guide discusses the components used in a chilled water system. It reviews various HVAC chiller-plant designs explaining their operation, strengths and weaknesses.
It’s by no means complete, and users are encouraged to purchase a copy of the Standard 90.1 as well as the User Manual which can be purchased online at www.ASHRAE.org.
This Chiller Plant Design Guide covers.
- Chiller basics
- Piping basics
- Cooling tower basics
- Control valve basics
- Mechanical rooms
- Pump requirements.
These are operational guidelines and every project has its own unique characteristics. Nonetheless, for non HVAC engineers (like me) looking for an overview to HVAC chilled water systems, this guide will prove useful.
