Monitoring the energy performance of industrial air-conditioning and refrigeration systems
With PilotE² method
How it works
PilotE² method calculates refrigeration or heat pump thermodynamic cycles performance based on thermodynamics principles.
PilotE² method is a direct and indirect methods combination, using the best of each. It uses a direct method to determine instantaneous performance but also measures evaporator or condenser energy, when possible, to obtain additional information on final energy use.
PilotE² method use only six measurement points in a simple setup, one power meter, two pressure sensors (high and low compressor pressure) and three temperature sensors).
Reliability and accuracy
PilotE² method is a more reliable and accurate than other methods based on air and water measurements. It allows to calculate this Key Performance Indicators (KPI):
- Cooling and Heating Power (kW)
- Coefficient of Performance COP/ EER
- Global System Efficiency
- Compressor Isentropic Efficiency
- Condenser Efficiency
- Evaporator Efficiency
- Electrical Energy Consumption
- Air/Water Flow, Power, Temp. Delta, Energy
- Superheat/Sub-cooling values
PilotE² Iceberg is a portable analyzer, suitable and useful for energy savings measurements and verification, during commissioning, maintenance or performance inspections and energy audits of refrigeration and air conditioning systems (HVAC&R).
PilotE² Iceberg is a plug-and-play solution ready to install with many templates in the application catalog to analyze you HVCAR plant. Ad-hoc templates can be supply on demand.
PilotE² Iceberg is a non-invasive solution. Temperature sensors are installed on pipe surface, pressure sensors in manometers or pressure leads and clamp-on or Rogowsky coils current sensors and voltage magnetic leads.
Rugged, reliable with IP65 protection degree, PilotE² Iceberg is the right tool to monitor HVACR machines or plants in outdoors or industrial environments.
