ADCG ASHRAE District Cooling Guide, 2nd ed

ASHRAE's District Cooling Guide, Second Edition, and Owner’s Guide for Buildings Served by District Cooling fulfill a worldwide need for a modern and complete design guidance for district systems.

District Cooling Guide, Second Edition, is a complete revision of the first edition, providing updated design guidance for all major aspects of district cooling systems. Each chapter has been updated to reflect the global growth of district cooling systems, including added information on the following topics: efficiency analysis between chiller arrangements, geotechnical considerations, design measures for avoiding low-ΔT syndrome, latent heat storage, comparison of energy storage technologies, guidance on operations and maintenance, as well as new examples and updated case studies. This book also contains a wealth of references to information sources and publications where additional details may be found.
 
The companion book Owner’s Guide for Buildings Served by District Cooling provides essential information to both the building owner and the building designer on the advantages, installation, and operation of district cooling systems. Owner-specific concerns, such as selecting a design consultant, responsibilities for in-building equipment maintenance, and district cooling tariff structures, are presented in easily understandable, nontechnical language. Designer-specific concerns, such as connection types, components, metering, and maintenance, are covered in detail. The guide also dedicates a chapter to issues related to existing buildings, such as design deficiencies and other constraints that could prevent achieving acceptable system performance, and also includes appendices with case studies on performance issues, such as low-ΔT syndrome.

Both books draw on the expertise of an extremely diverse international team with current involvement in the industry and hundreds of years of combined experience. These guides are perfect for consulting engineers with campus specialization, utility engineers, district system operating engineers, and central plant design engineers as well as owners and designers of buildings served by district cooling.
