Learning outcomes of the course unit

Deepening of knowledge and creative skills to design an internal microclimate of buildings by heating systems. Students will upgrade their knowledge of heating systems in buildings. After completing the course, students will be able to design a standard solution of selected systems. Students will have a basic knowledge of the preparation of project documentation for heating using different kinds of heating surfaces and systems. Get an overview of the draft of boiler rooms, heat transfer stations and cogeneration technology.

Prerequisites

Thermal technology. Fundamentals of HVAC. Basic laws of hydraulics.

Co-requisites

Basic knowledge of heating, ventilation, mathematics, physics, economics.
