I have issues simulating a water cooled coil (software limitations), and so I’m trying to simulate an equivalent thermodynamically system. I want to know if this methodology is valid for LEED documentation.
I’m simulating an air cooled coil with an equivalent COP. The equivalent COP is the ratio between the water cooled coil cooling capacity and the electric power, which includes compressor and pumps & cooling tower power in the condenser loop.
Please let me know what do you think about the equivalency.
