Total 10831500

Allow space capacity of 25% for future expansion 13539375 W


13.54 MW
With a power factor of 0.95, Total Maximum Demand = 14.25 MVA
say 14.50 MVA

Existing capacity of CHP 1.003 MW


Power required from the ESB = 14.91 - 1.003 = 12.54 MW
or 13.20 MVA
say 13.50 MVA
Note:
1.0 The floor areas are based on:
Architect's Existing Accommodation Area Schedule dated 12May 2006 and
Summary Schedule of Accommodation P10 070125
2.0 Ignore power for cleaning sockets in the circulation space/ communication and Plant areas
3.0 Small power of 35 W/m2 includes medical electrical equipment
4.0 75% of the net departmental areas is served by mechanical cooling
5.0 Allow CoP = 3.5
6.0 The calculation above include Trinity College and Haughton Institute
