HVAC Chilled Beam Systems
In HVAC Chilled Beam Systems, you'll learn ...
- Overview of active and passive chilled beam systems
- Concepts and principles of operation of chilled beam systems
- Chilled beam system air side design considerations
- Chilled beam system water side design considerations
With many HVAC systems in the global market, water-based systems are increasingly being specified to provide energy-efficient cooling. Chilled beam systems use water as well as air to transport thermal energy and can provide valuable additions to the traditional variable air volume (VAV) systems. As most North American HVAC designers have almost exclusively used VAV systems, they are often not aware of the energy benefits that can be derived by these alternate technologies, which are commonly applied in the rest of the world.
Known as ‘passive' or ‘active,' both types have coils that carry chilled water or hot water to condition the space naturally. In both cases, the building ventilation and latent loads are decoupled, and as a result, the equipment size and duct spaces are reduced considerably. The system offers excellent energy benefits as well. The system design, however, warrants that the temperature of the surfaces of the beam must not fall below the dew-point temperature of the surrounding air; otherwise, condensation will occur.
This course is for engineers with experience in the design of commercial HVAC systems. You will review HVAC fundamentals as they relate to chilled beam system design and understand the benefits to optimize space and energy.
This course is intended to educate you so you can determine whether the benefits and challenges regarding the operation and costs of chilled-beam systems are justified for your applications.
