NASA accepted recommendation, canceled procurement action, and redesigned the Chiller Plant addition based on Mr. Kirsner's recommendation.
Mr. Kirsner authored the 1983 energy study from which this project was identified and funded. It was awarded 1st Place in the Institution Category of the 1986 ASHRAE Energy Awards for the Southeast region. At Gracewood State School and Hospital in Augusta, Georgia, redesigned campus CHW distribution system to correct problems of insufficient flow and recirculation. $163,000 project consisted of retrofitting central plant chilled water pumps including provision of a 150 HP variable speed drive, replacing and reconfiguring out-building throttling controls, providing flow limiters to balance flow between buildings, and configuration of more efficient electric centrifugal chiller for "preferential loading. A new software program was written to control the campus-wide system. Projected annual energy savings was computed to be $163,000/year. Project was funded with 50% matching grant based on a study authored by Mr. Kirsner.
