Summary:
This seminar explores possibilities for wasted energy recovery and increasing multi-building system efficiency using one-pipe convective loops. We demonstrate several ways System Coefficient of Performance can be    increased using ground source and GeoMicroDisticts. There will be several sessions that will go over the     energy engineering aspects of optimizing GSHP systems using diversity, part load analysis, system COP and   system iCOPkW, the affinity laws for pumps and fans,   and earth thermal properties for heat storage. Specific examples of installed GeoMicroDistricts will be used to demonstrate the technology.

ON DEMAND

Summary:
"One system's trash is another system's treasure." Heat Recovery Heat Pump potential applications abound wherever systems operate at different temperatures, using one system's waste heat to provide or supplement the   heat source for another system. This session explores HRHP use in central plants, wastewater, geothermal bore field, and industrial applications emphasizing identifying applications.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ON DEMAND

Summary:

Geothermal Heat Pump systems are expensive primarily due to cost and installation of ground heat exchangers.

This session will explore three ways to introduce thermal energy storage in the system design with the goal to  reduce the size of ground heat exchanger. The methods presented also explore ways to use off peak rates for low cost system operation. The presenters will share    modeling aspects of this design and its use in innovative projects across the US and key operating characteristics.

Committee Scope

Tip: This section automatically generated from site Configuration file.

TC 6.8 is concerned with all equipment and systems which collect, store and utilize geothermal energy or fluids for the purpose of heating and cooling, and with the development and application of heat pump systems and heat recovery by refrigeration cycles including system design, operation, and performance (product design of unitary heat pumps and equipment components is excluded).

 Kirk T Mescher Award

This award is in memory of Kirk T Mescher, PE, an engineer who specialized in HVAC but whose real forte was innovation. Kirk’s design ideas are clever in and of themselves but the courage to implement them in projects and freely share the results underscores his exemplary service to our industry. Grants are awarded for an idea in GSHP, HVAC, or an elegant way to be more energy efficient.   Award for 2020 - background - 2021 application.
