Modern HVAC Technology and Design

MET 4410 3 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Explores the basic engineering concepts, principles, and procedures needed to design and select and/or integrate the elements and components of heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning systems. Topics include calculation of heating and cooling loads, ventilation needs as per standards, and recommended practices by ASHRAE. Covers principles of psychrometry and thermodynamic processes with moist air in order to condition it for human comfort and/or industrial processes. Studies the basic thermodynamic processes, working substances, and thermodynamic processes and cycles behind equipment commonly used to heat, cool, and ventilate environments, including the standard vapor-compression cycle and the absorption cycle. Includes basic principles of automatic control and techniques for energy conservation in HVAC systems. Discusses simplified procedures for planning and designing HVAC systems.
