HVAC systems with strict space humidity requirements should be controlled for a constant discharge air dew point temperature (or maximum discharge air dew point) in addition to controlling to a set discharge dry bulb temperature. Controllable wrap-around heat pipe systems can be an effective tool to help meet these strict space humidity requirements. This paper examines when and how the approach can operate and improve performance in a variety of heat and humidity settings.
