Construction of an Earth-Air-Pipe Cooling System (Undergraduate - Integrated Development Project)

  • The goal of this thesis was to design and develop a cooling system that is alternative to the traditional cooling systems which consumes a lot of electrical energy.
  • Our experimental observation showed that in Bangladesh, the temperature of the soil at a depth of 7 feet to 10 feet is significantly lower than the ambient air temperature.
  • With the observed temperature data and the meteorological data, we designed a cooling system that would collect warmer outside air, pass it through the underground duct and supply cooler air to the room.
  • We used Arduino to design the temperature measurement system. All the coding of related sensors was written in Arduino.
  • The setup performed quite well and supplied air at a comfortable temperature which was around 27°C while the ambient outside air temperature varied between 32°C to 34°C
