This study is based on the modeling of the air flow in the hall building including heating and air-conditioning systems. The building contains two converter stations “valves” considered as heat sources. Heat transfer in the hall is numerically simulated using the standard k-ε model of turbulence. For a very hot weather, this study aims to evaluate the local temperatures in the ambient air of the hall, with assuming running valves and air conditioning device in open loop with a 35°C inlet temperature. The study has shown that the air conditioning is efficient enough to maintain low level of temperature disparity. It has been found that the maximum air temperature around bushings does not exceed 40°C which is the highest temperature supported by the bushings.
