By Dale R. Patrick

Revised and edited, this new 3rd version reference covers the complete scope of power administration options and functions for brand spanking new and current constructions, with emphasis at the "systems" method of constructing an efficient total strength administration technique. most efficient within the improvements to the recent version is content material that displays the emphasis on conservation for "green power" understanding.

Also tested are development structural concerns, equivalent to warmth loss and achieve, home windows, and insulation. a radical dialogue of heating and cooling structures fundamentals is supplied, besides power administration guidance. additionally coated are power conservation measures that could be utilized for lighting fixtures platforms, water structures, and electric platforms. particular strength administration applied sciences and their software are mentioned intimately, together with solar power structures, power administration platforms, and replacement power technologies.

• Covers the whole scope of strength administration innovations and functions for brand spanking new and present buildings

• Emphasizes a "systems" method of constructing an efficient total strength administration strategy

• contains more suitable content material that displays the emphasis on conservation for "green power" awareness

Example text

Water storage tank. a fluid being elevated to a position or “head” well above other components. The depth of a body of water also has head pressure anywhere below its surface. Fluid pressure is directly dependent on the depth or height of liquid in a container. If the tank of Figure 2-6 is filled to the top, it would be capable of holding 2 cubic feet of water. 8 lb. 8 lb, distributed over the same area of 144 square inches. 866 psi. This represents twice the pressure that the tank exhibited when it was filled to a depth of 1 foot.

Heat and Temperature The terms heat and temperature are extremely important and must be clarified at this point. Heat is generally described as a measure of quantity, whereas temperature refers to a level of intensity. To distinguish more clearly between these terms, assume that a 5-gallon bucket and a 1-gallon container are filled with water of the same temperature. Water in the bucket will possess much more heat than the container because there are more molecules in it. Heat is directly dependent on both the speed and the number of molecules.

8 lb, distributed over the same area of 144 square inches. 866 psi. This represents twice the pressure that the tank exhibited when it was filled to a depth of 1 foot. Pressure is, therefore, based upon the height or depth of the head. Actual values can be determined by multiplying the head by the weight of the liquid. 433 × the head in feet. Absolute Pressure A pressure value measured from a perfect vacuum is called absolute pressure. In effect, atmospheric pressure and absolute pressure 42 Energy Conservation Guidebook have the same meaning.
