Fault detection

- Basic units
- Thermodynamics processes in HVAC systems

- Pound mass and pound force
- lbm = lbf (on Earth, for all practical purposes)

- Acceleration due to gravity
- g = 9.807 m/s2 = 32.17 ft/s2

- Pressure (section 2.5 for unit conversions)
- Temperature (section 2.6 for unit conversions)

- ρ = density = mass / volume
- v = specific volume = 1 / ρ
- specific weight = weight per unit volume (refers to force, not to mass)
- specific gravity = ratio of weight of volume of liquid to same volume of water at std. conditions (usually 60 °F or 20 °C and 1 atm)

Both functions of t, P

- Heat = energy transferred because of a temperature difference
- Btu = energy required to raise 1 lbm of water 1 °F
- kJ

- Specific heat (heat per unit mass)
- Btu/(lbm∙°F), kJ/(kg∙°C)
- For gasses, two relevant quantities cv and cp

- Basic equation (2.10) Q = mcΔt

Q = heat transfer (Btu, kJ)

m = mass (kg, lbm)

c = specific heat

Δt = temperature difference

- Sensible heat Q = mcΔt
- Latent heat is associate with change of phase at constant temperature
- Latent heat of vaporization, hfg
- Latent heat of fusion, hfi
- hfg for water (100 °C, 1 atm) = 1220 Btu/lbm
- hfi for ice (0 °C, 1 atm) = 144 Btu/lbm

- Work is energy transferred from system to surroundings when a force acts through a distance
- ft∙lbf or N∙m (note units of energy)

- Power is the time rate of work performance
- Btu/hr or W

- Unit conversions in Section 2.7
- 1 ton = 12,000 Btu/hr (HVAC specific)

- 1 ton = 2000 lbm
- Energy released when 2000 lbm of ice melts
- = 2000 lbm × 144 BTU/lbm = 288 kBTU
- Process is assumed to take 1 day (24 hours)
- 1 ton of air conditioning = 12 kBTU/hr
- Note that it is a unit of power (energy/time)

- First law?
- Second law?
- Implications for HVAC
- Need a refrigeration machine (and external energy) to make energy flow from cold to hot

- 1st law says energy is neither created or destroyed
- So, we must be able to store energy

- Internal energy (u) is all energy stored
- Molecular vibration, rotation, etc.
- Formal definition in statistical thermodynamics

- Enthalpy
- Total energy
- We track this term in HVAC analysis
- h = u + Pv

h = enthalpy (J/kg, Btu/lbm)

P = Pressure (Pa, psi)

v = specific volume (m3/kg, ft3/lbm)

In any cyclic process the entropy will either increase or remain the same.

Entropy

- Not directly measurable
- Mathematical construct
- Note difference between s and S

- Entropy can be used as a condition for equilibrium

S = entropy (J/K, BTU/°R)

Q = heat (J, BTU)

T = absolute temperature (K, °R)

Use total differential to H = U + PV

dH=dU+PdV+VdP , using dH=TdS +VdP →

→ TdS=dU+PdV

Or: dU = TdS - PdV

- dH = TdS + VdP (general property equation)
- Area under T-s curve is change in specific energy – under what condition?

- Pv = RT or PV = nRT
- R is a constant for a given fluid
- For perfect gasses
- Δu = cvΔt
- Δh = cpΔt
- cp - cv= R

M = molecular weight (g/mol, lbm/mol)

P = pressure (Pa, psi)

V = volume (m3, ft3)

v = specific volume (m3/kg, ft3/lbm)

T = absolute temperature (K, °R)

t = temperature (C, °F)

u = internal energy (J/kg, Btu, lbm)

h = enthalpy (J/kg, Btu/lbm)

n = number of moles (mol)

- m = mx my
- V = Vx Vy
- T = Tx Ty
- P = Px Py
- Assume air is an ideal gas
- -70 °C to 80 °C (-100 °F to 180 °F)

PxV = mx Rx∙T

PyV = my Ry∙T

What is ideal gas law for mixture?

m = mass (g, lbm)

P = pressure (Pa, psi)

V = volume (m3, ft3)

R = material specific gas constant

T = absolute temperature (K, °R)

- Assume adiabatic mixing and no work done
- What is mixture enthalpy?
- What is mixture specific heat (cp)?

- Quality, x, is mg/(mf + mg)
- Vapor mass fraction

- φ= v or h or s in expressions below
- φ = φf + x φfg
- φ = (1- x) φf + x φg

s = entropy (J/K/kg, BTU/°R/lbm)

m = mass (g, lbm)

h = enthalpy (J/kg, Btu/lbm)

v = specific volume (m3/kg)
