Optimized Dehumidification Control Loop

14.11.2012
<strong>Background</strong><br>

In central air handling units cooling and dehumidifying of the air usually takes place using chilled water cooling coils with one of the two kinds of circuits: temperature controlled or mass flow controlled chilled water supply circuits.<br><br> <strong>Technology</strong><br> The invention combines both types, the temperature controlled and mass flow controlled chilled water supply in one water circuit arrangement. Thus combining the advantages of the temperature controlled circuit with those of the mass flow controlled chilled water supply circuit, without the disadvantages immanent in the two circuit systems.<br><br> A simple but very effective valve arrangement, combined with a variable speed pump (see Figure) allows simultaneous control of the mass flow and the water supply temperature. The supply water temperature determines the slope of the change of condition and the mass flow controls the cooling power applied to the air. This allows cooling the air with or without dehumidification as well as dehumidifying the air with a minimum amount of cooling, resulting in substantial energy savings.<br><br>

<b>Benefits</b><br> <ul> <li>combines advantages of the temperature controlled chilled water supply, with the advantages of the mass flow controlled chilled water supply, but leaves the disadvantages out</li> <li>allows for cooling without dehumidification</li> <li>allows for dehumidification wit a minimum amount of cooling</li> <li>simple but very effective arrangement</li> <li>easy to install</li> <li>energy saving, thus lowering the cost of air conditioning</li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> German Patent DE 102009007591 <br> European Patent Application EP2394101A1<br> US Patent Application US2012048954A1 </p> <p><strong>Origin</strong><br> Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin</p>

Im Focus: Nuclear Pores Captured on Film

Using an ultra fast-scanning atomic force microscope, a team of researchers from the University of Basel has filmed “living” nuclear pore complexes at work for the first time. Nuclear pores are molecular machines that control the traffic entering or exiting the cell nucleus. In their article published in Nature Nanotechnology, the researchers explain how the passage of unwanted molecules is prevented by rapidly moving molecular “tentacles” inside the pore.

Using high-speed AFM, Roderick Lim, Argovia Professor at the Biozentrum and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute of the University of Basel, has not only directly...

Im Focus: 2+1 is Not Always 3 - In the microworld unity is not always strength

If a person pushes a broken-down car alone, there is a certain effect. If another person helps, the result is the sum of their efforts. If two micro-particles are pushing another microparticle, however, the resulting effect may not necessarily be the sum their efforts. A recent study published in Nature Communications, measured this odd effect that scientists call “many body.”

In the microscopic world, where the modern miniaturized machines at the new frontiers of technology operate, as long as we are in the presence of two...

Im Focus: Tiny microbots that can clean up water

Researchers from the Max Planck Institute Stuttgart have developed self-propelled tiny ‘microbots’ that can remove lead or organic pollution from contaminated water.

Working with colleagues in Barcelona and Singapore, Samuel Sánchez’s group used graphene oxide to make their microscale motors, which are able to adsorb lead...

Im Focus: ORNL researchers discover new state of water molecule

Neutron scattering and computational modeling have revealed unique and unexpected behavior of water molecules under extreme confinement that is unmatched by any known gas, liquid or solid states.

In a paper published in Physical Review Letters, researchers at the Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory describe a new tunneling state of...
