Baseline Report for the Fort Hood Army Base: Sept. 1, 2002 - Aug. 31, 2003
MetadataShow full item record
This report presents electricity, natural gas and cooling baselines for the thermal plant, buildings located in the 87000 block, III Corp building and other buildings that were determined to be part of the ESPC project at Ft. Hood. A baseline analysis is also presented for the natural gas consumption for the Ft. Hood Army base. The weather-independent analysis, which utilizes 24-hour profiles that were developed using ASHRAEâs 1093-RP diversity factor procedures are presented for data obtained from portable loggers attached to Watt-hour meters in selected buildings as well as data from the Main, West and North Substations.
DescriptionThe baselines developed for this report include data measured during the period from September 2002 through August 2003 for the thermal plant, 87000 block buildings, and III Corp building and natural gas data. Baseline analyses are presented for individual channels and groups of channels that represent loads determined to be of value to Ft. Hood. Preliminary baselines are also presented on buildings for which manual data were provided for 2003 (see Appendix). The weather-independent analysis is also presented for 87000 block buildings and new buildings. This report is divided into different sections that correspond to the different baseline analysis that were performed on the measured loads, including: an analysis of the chiller performance, an analysis of the weatherdependent channels at the thermal plant, baseline models for the 87000 block manual readings, III Corp building, a whole-base natural gas baseline analysis, and a whole-base electricity analysis. A description of the analysis methods is provided in the introduction. Additional details that pertain to the data that were collected are provided in each section. An appendix is also provided that includes information about the data logger parameter sets, the daily data recorded manually for the 87000 block buildings, and daily data recorded manually for the new buildings, the hourly data recorded by ACR loggers for the 87000 block buildings and the new buildings.
