To help chilled water systems reach their efficiency potential, Carrier has further enhanced its ChillerVu™ plant control system to include the new Carrier ChillerVu chilled water system optimizer. The new optimizer extends control efficiencies beyond the chiller plant and improves the efficiency of the entire chilled water system, including AHUs, fan coils, and other chilled water distribution equipment. Based on laboratory and field tests, Carrier officials said adding the optimizer to a building’s chilled water system can yield energy savings in the range of 3% to 15% percent (versus non-optimized systems).
