The University of Wisconsin has 4 chilled water plants providing up to 75,000 tons of cooling to 23 million square feet of campus buildings. Cooling is generated with 14 steam and electric chillers as large as 8,500 tons. This presentation will discuss the challenges and preliminary results of an operating cost reduction effort using predictive optimization strategies to coordinate the dispatch and efficient operation of the multiple plants under different utility rate structures.
