What is the load of Air Conditioning Energy required for keeping a BT Shelter cool. I want to know the break-up of load due to equipments and that due to atmospheric temperature.27th September 2005 at 18:30 #42262AnmolGuest
The load of equipments in a small shelter is about 1KWH and the atmosperic load in India can be assigned as 1KW. Fixing a 2KW Air-conditioner for a small BTS Shelter is adequate. ACs can be had from Siemens or any other reputed company. It is advisable to have a back-up cooling by PCM Energy P. Ltd. They give a passive cooling non-power system and it works wonder during power failures.28th January 2006 at 18:57 #42263A. J. KamdarGuest
Ordinarily in one BTS 240kg of Phase Change Material is fixed in a shelter of Size 2meters by 2.5meters by 2.7 meatrs. Space is provided for fixing another BTS and 120kg of more PCM for future needs. There is a technically fine write up on Telecom Shelter PCMs on http://pcmenergy.com/products/telecomshelters.htm30th January 2006 at 09:29 #42264AakashGuest
PCMs or Phase Change Materials are used in B. T. Shelters in a few diferent ways.
1. Back-up to air conditioning in case of power failure.
2. Free cooling with-out air conditioning and maintaining the Shelter temperature at less than 35C or 40C etc.
3. Latest-PCM is offering trials for PCM based back-up for eliminating diesel generator in case of power failure. You will find a write up on PCMs for BTS (B. t. Shelter) at pcmenergy.com
4. In India PCMs are extensively used in Airtel (Bharti) shelters. Tatas are in a trial stage and Reliance may follow the suit.1st February 2006 at 10:19 #42265Ashwin ShahGuest

Is there any thumb rule for the number of towers required to the number of subscribers in an area or any such rule of thumb. Also do all telecom towers require corresponding telecom shelters1st July 2006 at 12:00 #42269K.V.SubramanyamGuest
We are one of the largest manufacturers of Telecom towers and have recently forayed into Telecom shelters manufacturing.We would also like to add PCM’s to our shelter supplies.Can we have a tie-up on the technical know-how of the PCM’s.3rd July 2006 at 17:32 #42270AmbrishGuest

Dear Mr. Kamdar, on your rule of thumb idea on the usage amount may I ask how are these PCM Chemicals priced in the Wholesale market and who are the sellers.18th October 2006 at 01:06 #42272A. J. KamdarGuest

Thanks alot Mr. Kamdar.
May I also ask if you ever seen an idea to use prgrammed chip (DC Power added) to do the Passive Cooling without using the Chemical Backup?23rd October 2006 at 18:32 #42274A. J. KamdarGuest
No Mr. Collin. I have only witnessed a few live-site trial of use of PCMs in Telecom Shelters. It does work better than expectations. PCM-backed passive cooling Telecom Shelters are also in news for eligibility of Carbon Credits.2nd July 2007 at 08:29 #42275Sunil AgrawalGuest
Can you please let me know how do you calculate total heat load in a shelter.
And its approx. costing.
