Laboratory Building Energy Analysis
This online engineering PDH course describes energy efficiency strategies including reducing the air flow during unoccupied periods, variable-air-volume systems; lower static pressure drop in the air distribution system; energy recovery by enthalpy wheels, heat pipes and run-around loops; evaporative cooling; and more accurate accounting for plug loads.
Because laboratories use a high amount of energy, often more than five times as much per square foot as an office building, it is important to find cost-effective ways to reduce their energy use and costs.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to engineers who design high tech laboratory buildings and wish to use HVAC systems that are energy efficient and utilize heat recovery methods.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Energy efficiency strategies
- Ventilation rates
- Energy recovery
- Evaporative cooling
- Humidity controls
- Plug loads
- Cost-effective analysis
- Downsizing HVAC equipment
- Energy cost
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the material contained in Laboratories for The 21st Century, Energy Analysis, Publication DOE/GO-102003-1694, April 2003.
