Abstract: Invention and the widely use of air conditioning has improved people’s working and living conditions. However, it also consumes significant amount of energy, accounting for over 40% of total energy used in the buildings. Indirect evaporative cooling (IEC) is a relatively new kind of air conditioning mechanism developed. It is not only uses less energy comparing with traditional air conditioning, but also overcomes the weaknesses of a direct evaporative cooling (DEC) system. The weaknesses of DEC include humidifying the supply air and minimum temperature of supply air is not lower than wet bulb temperature.
