Carrier® ChillerVu™ Chilled Water System Optimizer
OPN-OPT-OL

The Carrier® ChillerVu™ chilled water system optimizer is a sophisticated, scalable, native BACnet plant optimization solution for chiller plants. The chilled water system optimizer minimizes the energy use of the entire chilled water system, up to and including air handling units. The factory-engineered control program is designed to provide a supervisory level of control over the chilled water production of the chiller plant, managing the plant chilled water supply temperature and the condenser water supply temperature to provide optimal energy usage while maintaining occupant comfort in the building.

The Carrier chilled water system optimizer seamlessly interfaces with Carrier’s ChillerVu plant system manager, further improving efficiency for plants consisting of Carrier 19, 23, or 30 series chillers (air or water-cooled) and non- Carrier chillers. Setpoint, plant status, machine energy consumption and other system data are easily exchanged between ChillerVu and the chilled water system optimizer.

System Benefits

  • Compatible with Carrier’s ChillerVu™ plant manager
  • Easy startup and commissioning using the i-Vu user interface
  • Fully plug-and-play with the Carrier i-Vu building automation system. As an integrated component of the i-Vu BAS, the controller can respond to the needs of the building, automatically resetting the chilled water and condenser water supply temperatures
  • Supports integration to chiller plant equipment using BACnet and Modbus® protocols
  • Embedded trends and alarms provide insight into chiller plant performance, and also aid in system tuning, maintenance, and troubleshooting

Energy Savings

  • Enhanced chilled water setpoint algorithm dynamically adjusts the plant setpoint to maximize energy savings
  • Dynamic condenser water setpoint algorithm adjusts to maintain optimal tower setpoint, minimizing chiller lift, and taking into account ambient conditions and tower approach
  • Chilled water and condenser water reset algorithms can be enabled/disabled easily to view energy savings in real time
  • Intelligent learning algorithms find the optimal energy usage while maintaining comfort conditions
  • Automatically adapts to changing conditions

Software Features

  • Intuitive pre-built dashboard shows total plant energy usage at a glance
  • Easily configured and updated using EquipmentBuilder

Robust Control Features

  • Reads power consumption from connected equipment: chillers, pumps, towers and air handlers
  • Balances chiller energy savings against fan and pump energy consumption
  • Calculates plant kW, tonnage, and kw/Ton
  • Works as an overlay on virtually any existing BACnet plant control systems, including Carrier ChillerVu™
