The chiller system has been installed, commissioned, tested; and it is fully operational.         

It was tested by varying six operating parameters, one at a time: the chilled water supply temperature setting, the return temperature and flow rate; the cooling water supply temperature and flow rate; and the steam supply pressure.   The test matrix and results are summarized in Results section.
