Energy conservation and contribution to the sustained development through action in the bioclimate design; Ahorro de energia y contribucion al desarrollo sustentable a partir de acciones de diseno bioclimatico

Abstract

The energy world crisis of 1973 besides the problems of supplying and the raise of prices also propitiated in various countries, a reaction aimed at the efficient use and conservation of energy and to the application of a common sense architecture: the BIOCLIMATIC ARCHITECTURE, which is based in utilization in the buildings of the alternate energies, such as the wind power, etc. The obtaining natural environmental comfort conditions and the saving and efficient use of energy in the buildings are the fundamental objectives of the BIOCLIMATIC ARCHITECTURE. Under these considerations several passive systems for the thermal control in buildings have been set forth, which have been applied in different climatic regions of the planet. This paper presents and analyzes the potential saving of energy through the implementation of practices such as the installation of artificial high efficiency lighting systems and passive cooling systems for the thermal control of an educational building -the central library of the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, Azcapotzalco Unit, located in Mexico City. The objective of this study is aimed at the reduction of the consumption of energy in the library and the attainment of comfortable hygrothermal environment for its occupants.

This paper presents and analyzes the potential saving of energy through the implementation of practices such as the installation of artificial high efficiency lighting systems and passive cooling systems for the thermal control of an educational building -the central library of the Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, Azcapotzalco Unit, located in Mexico City. The objective of this study is aimed at the reduction of the consumption of energy in the library and the attainment of comfortable hygrothermal environment for its occupants. Studies performed during the first stage of the research, have permitted the identification of a excessive energy consumption and lack of comfort hygrothermal conditions and the need of high quality air inside the library. These actions have been focussed to two aspects. The first one is related to the improvement in the operation of the electric installation and in the library lighting. These actions were based in the substitution of lamps, load balancing of the secondary circuits, checking and improvement of the electric insulation a better selectivity of lighting switches installation in the vicinity of windows and areas with greater natural illumination. The second aspect refers to the calculation, design, construction and monitoring of the functioning of cooling passive systems. The results obtained to date point out that the energy consumption has diminished and improved the environmental comfort conditions for the library building users. [Espanol] La crisis mundial de energia de 1973, ademas de los problemas de abastecimiento y elevacion de precios, propicio tambien diversos paises, una reaccion orientada al uso eficiente y conservacion de la energia, y a la aplicacion de una arquitectura con sentido comun: la ARQUITECTURA BIOCLIMATICA, misma que se basa en la utilizacion en las edificaciones de las energias alternativas, tales como la solar eolica, etc. Obtencion de condiciones de confort natural ambiental y ahorro y uso eficiente de la energia en los edificios, son los objetivos fundamentales de la ARQUITECTURA BIOCLIMATICA. Bajo estas consideraciones, se han planteado diversos sistemas pasivos para control termico de edificios, los cuales se han aplicado en diferentes regiones climaticas del planeta. En el presente trabajo, se presenta y analiza el potencial de medidas para ahorro de energia, tales como sistemas de iluminacion artificial de alta eficiencia y sistemas pasivos de enfriamiento para el control termico de un edificio educativo, la biblioteca central de la Universidad Autonoma Metropolitana, Unidad Azcapotzalco, ubicada en la ciudad de Mexico. El objetivo de este estudio se orienta a la reduccion del consumo de energia en la biblioteca, y a la obtencion de condiciones de confort ambiental higrotermico para sus ocupantes. Estudios realizados durante la primera etapa de investigacion, han permitido identificar un excesivo consumo de energia y condiciones de falta de confort higrotermico y de la necesaria calidad del aire interior en la biblioteca. Estas acciones se han enfocado en dos aspectos. El primero se refiere al mejoramiento de la operacion de la instalacion electrica y el alumbrado de la biblioteca. Estas acciones se basaron en la sustitucion de lamparas, balanceo de cargas en los circuitos secundarios, verificacion y mejoramiento del nivel de aislamiento electrico, incremento de la selectividad de encendido de instalacion de apagadores en las zonas cercanas a las ventanas y areas con mayor iluminacion natural. El segundo aspecto se refiere al calculo, diseno, construccion y monitoreo del funcionamiento de sistemas pasivos de enfriamiento. Los resultados obtenidos hasta ahora indican que se ha reducido el consumo de energia y mejorado las condiciones de confort ambiental de los usuarios del edificio de la biblioteca.}
