No, this isn't about my "macguyvered" windowshaker-turned-dehum; that's
been put away for the moment because the real system is doing so much
better at water removal. So I've been studying that a little -- yep, actually
weighing buckets. Four to five pounds every hour, what with this bit of
a heat wave we've had in the northeast.
The question is this: if I know the db/wb on both sides of my coil, and
know exactly how much water was removed per hour, is that enough to
take and stare at a psych chart and equations and determine everything else?
This is an inverter system running right steadily near setpoint so it's doing
very little sensible cooling, i.e. just pluggin' away on the humidity and never
cycling. I know the rough power input but don't know the running COP at
the time, and am not sure what the CFM is with a loaded coil and the fan on
low. Can I determine the CFM and the total enthalpy change from just coil
deltas and pints, or is that too many unknowns?
No actual system issues, just trying to sling a little theory around. Sorry
if this isn't the right place for it... I suppose that after a few more pints I
wouldn't *care* what the CFM was anymore...
