Ensuring appropriate thermal control requires proper design, construction, and use of the occupied space and the HVAC systems conditioning that space. Building management faces a number of challenges—maintaining temperature and humidity, adhering to thermal zoning guidelines, and ensuring proper indoor air quality. This course discusses these challenges and the ways of overcoming them.
This course explains the need for HVAC&R control systems. It describes control system components and the symbols that are used to depict them. The advantages and disadvantages of the three types of controls are listed in this course. Also discussed are details of typical control strategies for VAV, single-zone, constant-volume air, and dual-duct systems. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to: Identify the legends used in control.
The ACEEE Hot Water Forum (HWF) is the premier technical conference dedicated to making water hot, distributing it with low losses, and using water with efficient fixtures and practices.
Since 2008, the HWF has brought together experts and newcomers from manufacturing, distribution (plumbing), electricity, gas and water utilities, government, and the research community's opportunities to learn from each other and build momentum for market transformation. The conference emphasizes both the technical efficiency potential and the policy/program implications of service hot water technology and practices, and how people use hot water. Each year, the Forum features numerous sessions covering cutting-edge developments in these areas.
