Air conditioning systems in buildings using air cycle technology. Design and application guide


Examines the possibilities offered by air cycle technology for building services. States the technology can provide simultaneous heating and cooling within buildings and can be configured to be retrofitted to existing systems or to replace existing systems completely. Provides information to enable the reader to assess the viability of air cycle technology for a particular application. Focuses on the practical design, development and testing of a demonstration system in a real building. Outlines what an air cycle system is and how the basic system works, identifying some practical system configurations. Goes on to investigate the advantages of air cycle systems for buildings, comparing them directly to existing building services.
