  • Patent number: 11523544
    Abstract: In some examples, a controller for air and liquid cooling of electrical equipment is provided. The controller can include a cooling profile assignment module to assign a hybrid cooling profile based on temperature readings of electrical equipment; an air cooling control module to control a forced airflow cooling system for the electrical equipment in accordance with the assigned hybrid cooling profile; and a liquid cooling control module to control a liquid cooling system for the electrical equipment in accordance with the assigned hybrid cooling profile. The assigned hybrid cooling profile can indicate that the forced airflow cooling system is to be used as a primary cooling system for the electrical equipment unless temperature readings indicate that a heat profile of the electrical equipment is above a thermal threshold.

  • Patent number: 11454407
    Abstract: The invention relates to an HVAC apparatus, method, and system. Aspects of the invention include a supplemental heat source with an air handler unit for a conventional forced air heating and cooling system. The supplemental heat source in one example is a hydronic subsystem. It can be used alone or to supplement the forced air subsystem. Another aspect of the invention includes an air handling subsystem that has a housing that can be highly flexible in configuration and installation. The housing can support internal components, including a hydronic or other supplemental heat source with the forced air components. At least two sides of the housing can be configured for access for maintenance and repair. A control system can be designed to eliminate need for defrost cycle for forced air refrigeration-type subsystem and/or for better maintenance for comfort in the air conditioned space.
