I'm doing a chiller plant with 3 chillers and 2 chillers have isolation valves. My question is this, how do you go about sequencing your chillers such as resettting temps and when, when lead chiller fails how do you prove it, temp vs. time? How long do you wait after opening valves to start the other chillers?
I've done all this before but here in La, when the temps and humidity creep up 5 minutes could mean you dont catch up for the day, on the other hand properly protecting equipment so a chiller isn't cutting off and on every 5 minutes is paramount. Just trying to get a general concensus on how to make my sequencing more efficient.
