Organizers of the 2022 FIFA World Cup are touting air conditioning technologies for the stadiums. They say that the system will help to keep fans and players cool, but some experts are skeptical. They point out that it could still be a problem for fans who are not used to using air conditioning.
The first World Cup in Qatar was played in the summer, and temperatures were high. The average temperature in Qatar during the month of November is about 25 degrees Celsius, and during the summer months, the temperatures can reach as high as 50 degrees. Organizers of the 2022 World Cup are planning to move the event to winter, when temperatures are lower. However, they will still have to use air conditioning for safety reasons.
There are two main types of air conditioning systems. One is called “district cooling,” and uses 40% to 80% less electricity than a single unit. It works by blowing cool air into an enclosed area, and then pushing it out. The cooled air is then drawn back in using an air circulation process.
Another type of air conditioning system is called “targeted cooling,” and is designed to keep fans and players cool without an air-conditioned stadium. It works by using solar energy to pump cool air through 120,000 vents under seats. These vents also use a “smart” computer system that alters the temperature of the stadium.
The main goal of the cooling system is to create a bubble within the stadium. It does this by allowing the air inside to circulate, and by using large nozzles on the pitch. It is supposed to keep temperatures inside the stadium down to 18 degrees Celsius to 24 degrees Celsius. This system was used in the Khalifa International Stadium, which was renovated before the World Cup.
One problem with the cooling system is that it does not work when the stadium is not full. This means that it will only be able to cool a small part of the stadium. That’s why the 974 Stadium in Doha, the only venue that does not have air conditioning, will only be able to host night matches.
Another type of air conditioning system uses personal cooling units, located in specific areas of the stadium. The units are connected to nearby buildings and equipment, and can cool fans and players while minimizing energy use. They can also be linked to other air-conditioning equipment.
The system is also supposed to eliminate body odor, which is a major issue in Qatari stadiums. The system also works by using sensors to detect when areas of the stadium need to be cooled. The staff can then cool only those areas, instead of spreading the cooled air throughout the stadium.
The system was designed by a Qatar University professor named Dr. Saud Abdulaziz Abdul Ghani, who is also known as “Dr Cool.” He has been working on cooling technologies for 13 years. He is also a member of the Qatar 2022 project. He and his team designed 3D models of the stadiums and put them in a wind tunnel to test them.
