FSI-LTCAcad. year: 2020/2021
The course deals with the construction of modern refrigeration systems and heat pumps. It focuses on not only the construction of individual components, their purpose and placement in a real device, but also on the operation and maintenance of heat pumps and related legislation.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The student will learn to recognize the basic components of refrigerating equipment and heat pumps, to operate these equipment and to identify common operating conditions and failures.
Basic knowledge of thermodynamics and electrical engineering.
Recommended optional programme components
