Exergoeconomic model of a central air conditioning system

Heat supply, ventilation, air conditioning, gas supply and lighting

The article considers the issues of energy saving in central air conditioning systems by means of their operation parameters optimization, based on the exergoeconomic (thermoeconomic) approach. The necessity of joint consideration thermodynamic and economic factors of system operation is identified. Literature review in the field of study is submitted. There is the schematic diagram of the central air conditioning system provided for which the exergyeconomic model is created. Necessary assumptions are stated. Exergy economic model of central air conditioning system is shown in graphical form. The model is presented as separate zones, connected in-series. Basic expressions of the exergyeconomic model are stated. The expressions allow solving the problem of energy consumption minimization using the Lagrange's method of undetermined multipliers. Expression of a lagranпian for a problem of optimization of parameters of the functioning of the central air conditioning system is received. The performance control laws of separate zones of the air conditioning system providing minimal energy consumption during its operation are offered in a general view. As a conclusion possibility of considerable energy consumption decreases during operation of the air conditioning system.
