How CFD Optimized Cooling in a Battery Energy Storage System
One of the most frequent questions that customer and reps ask us is “Can you model this?” Even though the answer is always a resounding yes – we love a challenge – every rep and customer is still
surprised at the broad array of applications that benefit from a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis. This means that a myriad of designs currently in use in different sectors of the building industry could have been improved.

High demands are placed on modern HVAC systems to create optimal indoor environments while minimizing energy usage. Consequently, usage of computer-based analysis tools like computational fluid dynamics (CFD) that aid in the design of these systems is becoming more prevalent. With the recent addendum to ASHRAE 62.1 we expect the demand for CFD analyses to increase even further. The change states that a CFD analysis can be used to estimate the ventilation effectiveness value used to determine the outdoor air requirement instead of tables provided in the standard.

The Price Technical Centers (PTC) have been the foundation of Price’s technical training programs for decades. These centers in Winnipeg, MB, Atlanta, GA and Phoenix, AZ are regularly expanding, evolving and improving in an effort to more effectively demonstrate product capabilities and compare and contrast different technologies.

In the HVAC design world, there is some uncertainty about the application of new and existing air distribution technologies since codes change so quickly and sometimes drastically. Customer mock-ups of the proposed HVAC design for a specific space are a great way to help resolve design uncertainty.
