Abstract: For the efficient energy use, the study analyzed the outdoor wet bulb temperature in a large office building, which is operated by several chillers and cooling towers in a hot and humid weather condition. This simulation study modelled and calibrated the target building through the measured energy consumption data. Condensing water supply temperature of the cooling tower was controled as an energy efficient measure. The result showed that by controlling the condensing water supply temperature based on the monthly wet bulb temperature change, the energy consumption in the cooling season could be saved by 1.4%. If the control of hourly condensing water supply temperature is possible, up to 6.6% of energy can be saved.
