Course Name:HVAC - HVAC Energy Optimization
Course Outline & Objectives:Program explores, residential, light and large commercial HVAC systems and energy use with emphasis on understanding different system types and their requirements under the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC). We review airside and waterside HVAC systems including thermodynamics, psychrometrics, the refrigeration cycle, fluid flow in piping and ducts, system tuning, operations and maintenance, as well as associated energy conservation measures. Student will perform energy management calculation methods using computerized spreadsheets, focusing on load calculations, energy conversion factors, dimensional analysis and documentation standards. 1. Analyze and describe common energy conservation measures for HVAC systems. 2. Identify factors affecting energy performance of the following HVAC system components: fans, pumps, motors, refrigeration, and heat generation equipment. 4. Describe the operations of various types of HVAC systems typically installed in large commercial buildings. 5. Draw a schematic and identify the major components of heating and air conditioning systems for a central heating and cooling plant. 6. List the basic HVAC control components and describe the common types of control action. 7. Identify safety issues and precautions related to field electric and temperature measurements. 6. Calculate and solve problems involving psychrometrics, heat transfer rates, ventilation requirements, ventilation heating & cooling loads, fan curves, motor and combustion efficiency tests, unitary co-efficiency of performance, unit conversions, as well as weather normalized energy consumption and operating costs.
