Predatory Search Strategy for Load Distribution of Multiple Chiller Water Units for the Purpose of Energy Saving
In this paper, two chiller water units connected in parallel working using the predatory search strategy was observed. Predatory search strategy has been applied to solve the optimal load distribution strategy problem for the cooling system constituted by multiple chiller water units, which has the characteristic such as complexity, constraint, nonlinearity, modeling difficulty, etc. Compared with the conventional method,the results indicated that the predatory search strategy algorithms has much less power consumption and is very suitable for application in air condition system operation.
