(21 points total) A building requires 300 tons of cooling for 12 hrs/day for 200 days/yr . From 6 A.M. — 6 P.M., the energy charge is $0.10/kWh and the demand charge is $10/mo—kW. From 6 RM. — 6 A.M., the energy charge is $0.05/kWh and there is no demand charge. Find the annual cost of the following two options and determine which is lowest. Assume a capital recovery factor of 0.10. Note one ton of cooling is equivalent to 12000 Btu/hr, and one Btu is 1055 J. (a) Option A — 300 kW, 300-ton chiller costing $500,000 which runs for 12 hours each night and makes ice to melt during the day (b) Option B — 150 kW, ISO—ton chiller costing $250,000 which runs all day. Ice is made at night, and the melting ice delivers 150 tons during the day, and the chiller delivers the other 150 tons. @ AWW anng egg,— Afsfgfiioxm airs/W mam/5,17” am he >< s «GS/wk; £3 WOO/yr“ 13350000ij wk“: gafigfir ® WV EngflE Cog?

Consider a 35 % efficient 70 kW microturbine used in a combined heat and power (CHP) application illustrated in the figure below. Assume that 40% of the input fuel ends up as useful heat. The heat offsets the need for fuel for an 85 % efficient boiler. Find the displaced boiler input in Btu/hr. Note, one Btu is 1055 J. l l l 4 (26 points total). True/False — Two points each. Circle T if statement is true, F if statement is False. T® T69 1. Fuel cells are a relatively new technology, with the concept first described in the 1980’s and the first commercial applications appearing in the 1990’s. Assuming a 10% interest rate, the net present value of $3000 in year 5 would be $2000 (rounded to the nearest dollar). Maw/1L4 One of the goals of electric utility demand side management is to do “peak clipping (peak shaving), ” shifting electric load away from times of high use. An advantage of a horizontal axis wind turbine is no yaw control is needed to keep them facing into the wind. The higher the internal rate of return, the slower the investment recovery. hgfi Egg; is 3 00$ According to the 2007 National Academy of Sciences report discussed in class the top three causes for bird fatalities are vehicles, cats, and wind turbines. On a large interconnected power system (like the Eastern Interconnect) a sudden loss of generation (say 5000 MW) would result in a fairly rapid (seconds) decline in system frequency. In order to enCourage the development of wind energy, the State of Illinois has decided wind turbines are excempt from local property taxes. For winds less than the furling windspeed the output of a wind turbine is zero. “Rayleigh assumptions” means that the probability density function of the wind has a Weibull distribution with shape parameter k = 2. In 2006 the total wind energy production in the USA was about equal to the total electric energy produced in the state of Georgia. While not practical, it is theoretically possible to use a wind turbine to extract all the energy contained in the wind. Men M We stiles wtsuté‘ts’m a? no Mtfi’e.
