Biomass Heating Growth Assessment

COURSE NO: R04-004
Biomass Heating Growth Assessment
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course presents detailed calculation methods for the biomass heating project. The modelling described in this course uses a combination of algorithms to predict the energy delivered, on a yearly basis, by a biomass heating system. The load and demand duration curves are derived from monthly degree-days data specified by the user. Also the domestic hot water is included in the load by defining equivalent degree-days for hot water heating. Furthermore, different algorithm used to provide a preliminary sizing of the distribution network is illustrated.


Biomass heating systems burn plants or other organic matter to generate heat. This heat can be transported and used wherever it is needed—for the ventilation and space heating requirements of buildings or whole communities, or for industrial processes. Biomass heating systems differ from conventional wood-burning stoves and fireplaces in that they typically control the mix of air and fuel in order to maximize efficiency and minimize emissions, and they include a heat distribution system to transport heat from the site of combustion to the heat load.


This 4 PDH online course is suitable for engineers with a desire to understand the fundamentals of setting solar air heating project. Presented details cover issues related to technical and financial implementation and exploitation of solar air heating systems. Upon successful completion engineers will be able to address solar air heating terms, methods of operation and how to set up detailed technical and financial feasibility model.
