System Optimization and Exergy Analysis of Air Conditioning System for Data Center


Article Preview

As the air conditioning energy consumption of the date center has increasingly become the focus of attention, reformation for the energy consumption and exploration for the suitable combination model of the air conditioning system have significance in energy saving. This paper makes a program design for the air-conditioning system of a data center in Beijing, makes an analysis of the system operation mode and uses the concept of exergy efficiency to optimize the air conditioning system in order to achieve maximum efficiency.
