This new handbook offers designers and operators of air conditioning and refrigeration systems everything they need to know in order to operate functioning, energy-efficient, and cost-effective systems. It takes a total systems approach to HVAC&R, which serves as a valuable alternative to other references in the field. By providing basic theoretical concepts of thermodynamics and properties of matter, practical data on the operating characteristics of a wide range of systems, and analytical tools, the "Handbook of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning" enables engineers to: accurately determine the capacity of various systems; select the most efficient system; and operate the system at minimum energy and cost. The "Handbook" emphasizes such new technologies as microprocessor-based direct digital controls - an integral part of all HVAC&R systems; off-peak systems, such as thermal storage and gas cooling; dessicant cooling; cold air distribution; adjustable frequency AC drives; and direct-fired two-stage absorption chiller-heaters. Included are data on the full- and part-load capacities of centrifugal refrigeration systems, as well as variable-air volume, fan-coil, ice storage, and water storage systems. In addition, the "Handbook" offers unique coverage of the principles of space air diffusion, duct sizing methods and various supply and relief fans. Numerous case studies and the more than 400 illustrations contribute to making the "Handbook of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning" a useful resource for every HVAC&R engineer.
