Please join us in kicking off the ASHRAE year with ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, Mick Schwedler, he will be presenting on High Performance Chilled Water Systems. 

High Performance Chilled Water Systems

Chilled water systems have been used for more than 80 years.  During that time, there has been a consistent effort by manufacturers and system designers to develop equipment, design strategies and control methods that result in the highest performing chilled water systems possible. 

This presentation discusses system configurations, design parameters and system control techniques that can help owners and design teams reduce chilled water first costs, system operating costs and environmental impact.

Recommended audience: Consulting engineers, contractors, facilities managers, and students.

Mick Schwedler, PE, FASHRAE, LEED® AP BD+C has been involved in the development and support of HVAC systems for Trane since 1982. As an applications engineer his areas of expertise include system optimization (in which he holds patents) and chilled water and water source heat pump system design.

Mick serves as a President Elect on the ASHRAE Board of Directors and is an ASHRAE Fellow, recipient of ASHRAE’s Exceptional Service, Distinguished Service, and Standards Achievement Awards, and was Chair of SSPC 90.1-2010 (if you have any comments about that!). Mick also served as Chair of the Advanced Energy Design Guide Steering Committee and on project committees for the 50% Hospital and Office Buildings AEDGs. He is Past President of the La Crosse Area ASHRAE Chapter and presently misses serving on Technical Committees.
