The energy consumption of the climate systems is one of the main expenses for possible OpEx optimization.
Energy consumption by climate systems depends on many parameters: heat dissipation of equipment, outside temperature, set switch-on temperature, installed passive cooling, and characteristics of the outdoor cabinet (thermal conductivity, insulation, double walls).
There are several ways to cut operating expenses on climate systems energy consumption for telecom infrastructure. In combination, it can provide energy savings of more than 15%.
1. Combination of passive and active cooling on telecom base station:
This approach allows active cooling to be used only at critically high temperatures, and passive cooling at the rest of the time. It can significantly change the energy consumption and often reach a lower total cost of ownership of the base station.
Depending on climate conditions, TECO team selects for the clients the most energy-efficient solution. It could be passive ventilation, a heat exchanger, a combined air conditioner with a built-in heat exchanger, or Free Cooling.
2. Smart-control of climate systems:
By implementing remote control for climate systems, the cost and number of additional service visits are a minimum. With remote control of climatic equipment, there will be no need to send a service team to diagnose an accident or to change parameters. Remote monitoring is especially useful for distant or hard-to-reach base stations.
Therefore, due to the monitoring system by TECO, it is possible to change all parameters remotely, to form statistics on energy consumption and emergency situations. And TECO software integrates all climatic installations into a single web system, allowing you to change the parameters by city or region and gather all data for analysis in a single platform.
3. Optimizing the climatic performance of the telecom cabinet:
The design of the cabinet (with or without insulation) directly affects the energy efficiency of climate systems.
Telecommunication cabinets with sandwich panels keep cool temperature inside for a longer time, even if the air conditioner is turned off. With such construction the cabinet works like a refrigerator, turning on climatic systems rarely. So the double walls with thick insulation are more appropriate for energy saving on climate unit performance.
The basic design of TECO cabinets is with sandwich panels providing a thermal conductivity coefficient of no more than 0.036 W / m2.
Using the listed approach comprehensively, TECO team helps to reduce the operating expenses on climate management on telecom base stations by more than 15%.
