Trials and Victories: Design & Operation of New CHW Plant and Second TES Tank at UT Austin

06-15-2017 12:51

Summary

The new medical campus' electrical load imposed on UT's microgrid required a creative solution to offset higher peak demand and also maintain the CHP system at peak efficiency. A new CHW plant, paired with the campus' second TES tank, offered attractive load shifting capabilities, yet also created unprecedented hydraulic challenges. Years of planning, design, and development culminate to a completed system ready for testing, but that is just the beginning of the story.
