Simulation study on a water chiller complete with a desuperheater and a reversibly used water cool


Presents a simulation study where a steady-state mathematical model for a desuperheater heat recovery system complete with a reversibly used water cooling tower (RUWCT) is developed.  States that simulation results based on the specifications of an actual chiller plant have demonstrated that the model is stable and behaves as expected.  The operating characteristic of the refrigeration system with a desuperheater and a RUWCT was studied. The required flow rate of chilled water to be pumped into the RUWCT was calculated in order to satisfy a certain heat load.  The maximum heating capacity of the system under different operating conditions was also evaluated.
