The OptiFlex chilled water system optimizer is a sophisticated, scalable, native BACnet optimization solution for chilled water plants. The chilled water system optimizer minimizes the energy use of the entire chilled water system, up to and including air handling units and other water side chilled water consumers. By providing optimized control of the chilled water and condenser water setpoints, the chilled water system optimizer can lower energy costs while also maintaining occupant comfort levels in the building. The chilled water system optimizer solution consists of a self-adapting control algorithm packaged in an application specific Automated Logic controller.
KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Designed to be used on plants of varying size, up to a maximum of eight chillers
Adapts automatically to changing environmental conditions and system changes over time
Senses total system energy usage including all plant room equipment and airside energy consumption
Minimizes energy use over the entire chilled water system, including chilled water plant equipment and air-side chilled water consumers
Functions as an integation to the existing plant control system, intelligently computing optimum chilled water and condenser water setpoints while continuously monitoring plant room and load-side energy consumption
Fail-safe logic is designed into the system so that the plant will revert to default setpoints in the event that optimized setpoints cannot be determined
Monitors and displays optimization metrics via integrated dashboard
Works with the chilled water side alone, condenser water side alone, or both
Can work with virtually any existing plant control system
Integrates easily via network communications with all mechanical and electrical equipment, regardless of brand
Interfaces easily with the Automated Logic PlantCTRL chiller plant solution enabling additional plant efficiency improvements
Adjusts chilled water and condenser water setpoints to achieve overall combined chiller plant and air-side energy savings
Lower first cost versus competitor offerings that require extensive plant analysis, system modeling, control system and mechanical system upgrades
