This publication presents the work done on energy optimization of a group of chillers by automating the cooling system of blowing dies in an industry that is entrusted with the manufacture of plastic containers. In a first stage, the preliminary study on the energy analysis of the old system, where each chiller was in charge of cooling a specific group of blow moulding machines, without taking into account whether or not the blow moulding machines are working, is detailed; subsequent to this, the implementation of the automated cooling system was carried out, where all chillers were centralized in a machine room, automation was carried out with a Siemens S7-1200 PLC, switching the chillers on and off is based on the total thermal capacity required by the blow moulding machines. Finally, the energy analysis of the new cooling system was carried out, where the results were compared, and conclusions were drawn.
