0.1.4 Learning goals of Efficient HVAC Systems

Course subject(s) Module 0: Introduction to Efficient HVAC Systems

At the beginning of each course it is always important to manage expectations and give a clear overview of what you are going to learn.

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Describe the different steps HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) engineers need to follow to develop a proper design while collaborating with the architect.
  • Make choices and calculations on how to process air in an air handling unit, and how to distribute it to ensure thermal comfort.
  • Make choices and calculations on how to distribute heat and cold with air systems, water systems and mixed systems.
  • Decide which supply and distribution temperature levels to choose, taking into account efficiency and thermal comfort.
  • Make a preliminary design of complex combinations of (renewable) energy equipment.
  • Describe how to make these systems manageable and controllable.
