Challenges in Comfort Cooling

William Worek

Second Thermal and Fluids Engineering Conference April 2017, Las Vegas, USA

Challenges in Comfort Cooling: Separating Sensible and Latent Loads - Material Constraints and New Opportunities. As buildings have become more energy efficient and tighter and as Net Zero Energy Buildings are designed and implemented, the latent cooling load has increased and improved performing heating systems are desired. This presentation will present the status of current technologies and the efforts to improve performance and the capacity per unit volume (i.e., minimization of footprint) of heating and cooling systems. Conventional heating systems have limited efficiencies, many times less than one. Likewise, thermally-activated cooling/dehumidification systems also have relatively poor efficiencies. New developments are showing that performance can be significantly improved. Some of these new technologies will be highlighted for discussion.
