Chillers are indispensable machines for heat removal and major sources of power consumption in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. In this paper, a cardinality constrained global optimization problem is formulated to minimize power consumption for optimal chiller loading. The formulated problem is solved using a collaborative neurodynamic optimization method based on multiple neurodynamic models. Experimental results based on available actual chiller parameters are elaborated to demonstrate the superiority of the proposed approach to many baseline methods for optimal chiller loading.
