This PI System plugin performs thermodynamic calculations on the chiller coils, calculating the real time chiller duty, heat exchanger effectiveness, and heat transfer coefficient. It uses the chiller design specs to model design conditions for real time comparison. Air moisture removal rate is calculated when inlet humidity is available.
When used with the Combustion Gas Turbine Performance Monitor & Plant Heat Rates plugin (PPI-CCP-CTG-PRF), the chiller advisor will determine whether chiller operation is beneficial under current ambient conditions.
When used with the Combustion Gas Turbine Weather-based Forecast plugin (PPI-CCP-CTG-FRC), the chiller advisor will recommend chiller operation based upon future ambient weather conditions.
