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.
