Patil #1, Abhijeet B. Auti #, Dr. Arundhati S. Warke #3 Symbiosis International University, Pune, Maharashtra, India #1 # #3 Abstract In the present study, three dimensional models o chilled water piping system is created using design modeler o Ansys-13. Ansys-13 luent is used to analyses low through chilled water pipe or pressure drop prediction. Karman-Prandtl equation is used or deining velocity proile o turbulent low with the help o user deined unction. Result obtained rom CFD analysis is compared with results o 3K, K, ISHARE and Carrier equivalent length methods. Statistical analysis o perormance based relative error has been carried out and based on that optimum analytical method or pressure drop prediction in chilled water piping is suggested. Keyword- chilled water piping, K, 3K, Pressure drop, ISHARE, CFD analysis I. INTRODUCTION In designing air conditioning and rerigeration plant, prediction o correct pressure drop is the most important actor. Appropriate and economical selection o pump requires accurate prediction o pressure drop in chilled water piping circuit and hence calculation o pressure drop is the initial step o the pump selection process. In air conditioning plant, cold water is circulated through chiller (evaporator coil) where it reject the heat and then passed through air handling unit (AHU) where it absorbs heat. Chiller and air handling unit are connected through chilled water pipe. Length o chilled water pipe may depend up on the locations o both the units. This piping system contains dierent types o ittings like control valves, bends, expander, reducer, chiller coil and AHU coil. Fig. 1.

PRESSURE DROP CALCULATION BY ANALYTICAL METHODS There are dierent methods or calculation o pressure drop due to pipe ittings. 3K method by Darby [3][4], Equivalent length method by ISHRAE [5] and Carrier system design manual [], K method by William B. Hooper [8] are analytical methods used or pressure drop prediction in chilled water piping system. In these methods pressure drop due to each itting is calculated separately and then combined or pressure drop measurement in the entire piping system. Q Water velocity ( V ) = = = m/sec. A Π 4 ρ V D Reynolds Number (Re) = = = [1] μ Colebrook- white equation [7] is solved or riction actor () using newton raphson method with the help o C- program.

Equivalent Length Method This method assumes that the pressure drop across the length o a pipe is same as it occurs in the itting. Thus these ittings can be replaced by simple pipe o particular lengths which has a same pressure drop. Pressure drop calculations by equivalent length method are carried out using equation given below.

Variations in pressure drop calculated by analytical methods with respect to CFD analysis Pressure drop calculated by ISHARE and Carrier shows similar results but higher pressure drop value with relative error o 6.19% and 6.11% respectively. Whereas 3K method under predicts pressure drop value as compared to CFD results with relative error o 7.7%. However K method shows optimum results o pressure drop prediction with 1.86% relative error. ACKNOWLEDGMENT The authors would like to thanks Mr H. J.
