Abstract: This document presents the results of Honeywell’s data collection activity for the integrated energy system (or CHP -- Cooling, Heat and Power) system at Ft. Bragg. Much of this work is funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, thru Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Honeywell is providing significant cost sharing in this development. A brief description of the overall project is presented. The objective of the ORNL project is to develop packaging technologies for large (2 to 5 MW) integrated energy systems (IES) and field-test a prototype design. The major equipment at the Ft. Bragg site consists of a gas turbine-generator, a heat recovery steam generator, and a waste heat fired absorption chiller. The key goals of the project are:
  • Develop a set of “reference” CAD-based IES modular system designs,
  • Develop a supervisory control system having on-line optimization,
  • Develop a 1000 Ton exhaust-driven absorption chiller,
  • Install and monitor the performance of a prototype IES modular system employing the above technologies
The installation site for the packaged IES system is the 82nd Heating Plant at Ft. Bragg, NC. The 82nd plant serves a large number of barracks and other buildings with steam for heating and domestic hot water, and chilled water for cooling. This project is allied with on-going work by the Honeywell’s Energy Services Team, serving as a provider of Energy Services Performance Contract (ESPC) services to the U.S. Army at Ft. Bragg. In a related activity, the Honeywell Energy Services Team at Ft. Bragg is also collaborating with the U.S. DOE’s Federal Energy Management (FEMP) Program (thru Oak Ridge National Laboratory) to enable the 82nd Central Plant at Ft. Bragg to serve as a showcase IES site for the FEMP program.
