System for modular building construction

InactiveUS20080134589A1Facilitating selective interconnectionConstruction materialLighting and heating apparatusEnvironmental systemsModular unit
Construction systems for erecting building structures comprise a plurality of prefabricated interconnectable modular building units, each unit not meeting at least one of the ISO certification criteria for transport of cargo but each unit comprising a frame shaped as a rectangular parallelopiped and comprised of framing members and a plurality of nodes, each node situated at a corner of said frame for selective interconnection with other units, the nodes and the exterior dimensions of the frame conforming to ISO shipping standards such that each unit is transportable using the ISO intermodal transportation system, and such that when the units are aggregated horizontally and vertically and adjacent units are interconnected, a building structure comprising at least one habitable space is formed. The modular units are assembled in a factory remote from the job site, and are there constructed to a semi-finished state, including installation of one or more of interior fit-out systems and finishes, exterior envelope systems, plumbing systems, electrical systems, environmental systems, and fire protection systems, following which the semi-finished modular units are transported from the factory to the job site, where they are craned into place and secured to form the structure being erected, a plurality of adjacent pairs of semi-finished modular units also being “stitched” together, and the semi-finished modular units are thereafter constructed to a finished state.

Rotary magnetic refrigeration device and application thereof

The invention discloses a rotary magnetic refrigeration device. The rotary magnetic refrigeration device comprises a magnetic field source, two active regenerator modules and cold and hot fluid heat exchange channels, and is characterized in that: two packing layers sandwich a magnetic medium in a radial direction so as to form one active regenerator module; the two active regenerator modules are staggered coaxially and axially and arranged at an interval of 180 DEG in the circumferential direction, and pass through an upper half magnetic field region covered with the magnetic field source and a lower half nonmagnetic region alternately when rotating synchronously; A hot fluid channel which is communicated with a high temperature end heat exchanger is statically arranged in the pace of the magnetic field region at the rotating periphery of the active regenerator module; and the cold fluid channel which is communicated with a low temperature end heat exchanger is statically arranged in the space of the nonmagnetic region at the rotating periphery of the active regenerator module, and thermal insulation layers are arranged between the two active regenerator modules in the axial direction, and at the periphery and left and right end faces of the cold and hot fluid channels.

System and method for hydronic space heating with electrical power generation

This invention provides a system and method for cogeneration of electric power and building heat that efficiently interfaces a liquid-cooled electric power generator with a multi-zone forced hot water (hydronic) space heating system. The system and method utilizes an electric generator with an electric output capacity (kW) that is near the time-averaged electric power consumption rate for the building and with a heat generation capacity that is useful for meeting building heating needs. This generator is operated as the priority source of heat for the building, but normally only when there is a demand for heat in building, with the intent of running the generator for long periods of time and generating a total amount of electric energy (kWhs) that is significant in comparison to the total electric energy consumption of the building over time. The actual onsite time-variable power demand (kW) is met by a combination of the cogenerated electric power produced on site and quantities of electric power from the public electric power grid or another external power source. Hence, useful electric power is generated on site as a by-product of the required generation of heat for space or water heating. The generator is run at a speed/operating condition that is appropriate to maintaining a long operational life.

Heat pump type heat exchanging unit

ActiveCN101236032AIncrease the temperature difference between supply and return waterLower return water temperatureHeat pumpsEnergy efficient heating/coolingWater flowEngineering
The invention relates to a heat pump type heat exchange units, which belongs to the technical field of energy. The units are composed of hot water type absorption heat pump units, a water-water heat exchanger, various connecting pipelines and accessories, wherein a water flow system of the connecting pipelines is divided into a primary side pipeline and a secondary side pipeline, the primary side pipeline employs a manner of a step sequence series connection, hot water of the primary side pipeline sequentially passes through a generator of an absorption heat pump, the water-water heat exchanger and an evaporator of the absorption heat pump, hot water of the secondary side pipeline passes through an absorption device and a condenser of the absorption heat pump and the water-water heat exchanger, because the primary side pipeline of the heat exchange units sequentially passes through the generator of the absorption heat pump, the water-water heat exchanger and the evaporator of the absorption heat pump, energy of hot water is used step by step, thereby greatly increasing differential temperature between water supply and water return of primary side hot water. Additionally, outlet water temperature of primary side heat exchange units is commonly lower than that of secondary side inlet water, which can not be realized by conventional heat exchanger.
