COMPUTER MODEL OF THE REFRIGERATION SYSTEM OF AN ICE RINK

Gabriel Teyssedou, Radu Zmeureanu, Daniel Giguère

Abstract: This paper presents the development of a computer model of the refrigeration system of an existing ice rink by using the TRNSYS 16 environment. The ice rink is located in Montréal and the refrigeration system is composed of two chillers using refrigerant R-22. Models have been developed for the chillers, the iceconcrete slab and the controller. The impact of a heat recovery from the condensers on the energy demand for sanitary water heating is estimated. The TEWI criterion is used to estimate the refrigeration system impact on the global warming.
