Unformatted text preview: T zone and therefore provides heating to the zone. The blower that moves the air through the coil has an efficiency of η b = 0.55. You may neglect fouling and assume that the efficiency of the fins on the air-side is 100%. Further, you may neglect the convection resistance associated with the condensing steam and conduction through the tubes. a.) If only one module is installed, determine the power required by the blower, the temperature of the air leaving the steam coil, and the heat provided to the zone. b.) Plot the heat provided to the zone and the blower power as a function of the number of modules. Explain the shape of your plot. How many modules would you suggest using for the steam coil? Why?...
