78 Performance Assessment of a Novel Dew Point Air Conditioning System in the UK Climate Conditions
Download citation file:
This paper investigated the feasibility of a novel dew point evaporative cooling for air conditioning of buildings in the UK regions. The issues involved analyses of the UK weather conditions, investigation of availability of water for dew point cooling, and assessment of cooling capacity of the system over various regions of UK. It is concluded that the dew point system is suitable for most regions of the UK, particularly the regions around Finningley and Aberdeen where the climate is drier than other regions in summer. Lower humidity results in higher difference between the dry bulb and dew point of the...
