  • Patent number: 9709294
    Abstract: An air conditioning system includes a housing defining a first airflow path therein between an outside air inlet over a cooling coil and an outlet for delivering outside air from the outside air inlet over the coil to the outlet, a second airflow path between a return air inlet over the cooling coil and to the outlet for delivering return air over the cooling coil, and a third airflow path between the return air inlet and the outlet for delivering return air through the housing without passing over the cooling coil. The system includes outside, return, and bypass air dampers that are sequentially moveable between open and closed positions for directing air through or preventing air from entering the first, second, and third airflow paths, respectively. A controller independently controls the opening and closing of each damper in response to data received from the sensor.

  • Patent number: 9671839
    Abstract: Acoustics management at an information handling system provides reduced acoustic noise with limited performance impact by dynamically changing power dissipation as a function of cooling fan speed and ambient temperature so that preemptive power restrictions prevent excessive thermal conditions that lead to excessive cooling fan speeds and associated acoustics. A maximum cooling fan speed of less than an available maximum is set and maintained by reducing power dissipation unless power dissipation reaches a minimum, after which the minimum power dissipation is maintained and cooling fan speed is allowed to increase.

  • Patent number: 9664398
    Abstract: The present development is a building air cooling system using cool ground water, e.g. well water. Building air is cooled by coming into direct contact with cool ground water in a compact chamber using PVC packing for maximizing heat transfer efficiency, conserving space and reducing the required ground water pumping power consumption without requiring expensive compression and expansion cycles of the traditional air conditioning systems. If additional cooling is desirable, a second stage traditional air conditioning or heat pump system may also be used.
