Energy Performance and HVAC System Design Considerations for Indoor Agricultural Facilities

Talal Alotaibi | Fayez Almutairi

Abstract: One of the main cases facing agriculture is the loss of cultivation lands around large cities, because as more land is lost will make it much more difficult to grow enough food to satisfy the increase of human population. Consequently, Indoor agriculture is a growing market. Everybody all around the world, crops developed inside for assortment of reasons. In our study, we will see at a few HVAC considerations &the electrical performances of heat load calculation, ventilation, and cooling (HVAC) systems. Assessment for many cultivated densities when dealing with indoor growing spaces considered. The out-turn showed that using the economizer system minimizes the total power consumption of the air- condition system for high-density building internal agriculture. It demonstrates that taking into account the proper heat transfer between the cooling installations and the environment is of particular importance for determining the appropriate size of the heating equipment. The high latent heat transfer capacity of the installation through evaporation makes it possible to properly size the dehumidification equipment, which is essential in cold season due to the risk of condensation in the shell of the space.
