Dandan Zhu, Da Yan, Zhen Li

Abstract: A kind of separate heat-pipe heat exchanger (SHP exchanger), which can move heat from indoor air to outdoor air by making use of their temperature difference, uses much less energy consumption than air-conditioning system in base station due to none of compressor. This study built up an annual energyusing simulation module of SHP exchanger in DeST by building the model of SHP exchanger and accomplishing the coupling calculation of it and the model of dynamic thermal process in building. Besides, the verification and application of this simulation work shows that it can assist the design of air-conditioning system in base station.
