An Introduction to Central Heating Plant Planning
This online engineering PDH course contains data and information as criteria to guide the planning of steam and high temperature water (HTW) central and individual heating plants. Engineering and economic considerations are identified to guide siting decisions, fuel selection, and the choice of either high temperature water or steam distribution media.
The primary purpose of these plants is to generate steam and high temperature water for space heat and process steam in the most economical, operationally efficient, and environmentally acceptable manner possible for distribution to groups of buildings.
This 2 PDH online course is intended for mechanical engineers as well as design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to planning of central heating plants.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Understanding the application requirements for heating plants
- Understanding the recommended criteria for central heating plants
- Understanding the recommended criteria for cogeneration plants
- Understanding the recommended criteria for expansion or rehabilitation of existing plants
- Understanding the criteria for standby facilities
- Understanding the planning consideration of steam versus high-temperature-water plants
