These days, designs are favoring higher total system capacities, larger generators at higher output voltages integrated into “campus-type” power distribution systems, and security. Review design approaches, lessons learned, and relevant codes.
The history of our battle against infections and airborne disease is fascinating. Expand your knowledge and then sharpen your process for evaluating product options to craft better strategies for reducing these health risks.
From ideas to expense report, the last installment in this series looks at some needs in the course of standing engineering business, and what the still relatively new world of apps is offering up to meet them.
One of the worst things you can do is note the capacity and replace the chiller. Have the building loads and usage changed? What about motors and cooling towers? Consider these and your part-load realities to create real long-term improvements.
Many engineers tend to avoid or delegate the nitty gritty of a ground source heat pump system, from soil moisture effects to building system (im) balance. It's time for designers to get in the loop. Learn more about Grounded In Reality in the December issue. Other topics in the December issue include health care HVAC, Boilders, check out the Back2Basics, and more.
