Course detail

Selected Chapters of Air-conditioning

FAST-CT002Acad. year: 2018/2019

The course consists of issues of the design and operation of HVAC (airconditioning) systems. They presented methods for solving complex approach that respects the dynamic behavior of the boundary conditions of design and operation.
A fundamental task is the thermal behavior of rooms, filtration, cooling, humidification, drying, ventilation and air-conditioning heat exchangers design. The findings are the basis for the design of ventilation systems and specialized civil buildings with high requirements on the internal microclimate (eg. Cleanrooms).
