COURSE TITLE: Overview of Chiller Compressors
COURSE NO: M04-027
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Overview of Chiller Compressors
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides comprehensive information on the chiller compressors. It addresses the key issues pertaining to the chiller compressor selection and their applications. The practical considerations and assessment criterion are also discussed in brief.

 

In HVAC industry, the refrigeration machine that produces chilled water is referred to as a "chiller". The majority of installations operating worldwide are based on the vapor compression chillers that use mechanical energy in the form of electric  motor to drive the cooling cycle. The vapor compression chiller packages are generally classified by 4 types of compressors namely centrifugal, reciprocating, screw and scroll.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to HVAC engineers, facility engineers, architects, environmentalists, operations and maintenance personnel, as well as consultants and contractors who construct, build and manage facilities.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Operating principle of reciprocating, screw, centrifugal and scroll compressors
  • Key advantages, disadvantages, limitations and drawbacks of various refrigeration compressors
  • Efficiency ratings of various chiller options on peak load and part load
  • Factors affecting the efficiency of chiller compressors
  • Types of refrigerants used/recommended
  • Heat rejection options - air cooled vs. water cooled chillers
  • Reliability, maintenance, field serviceability of various chiller options
  • ARI standard 550/590 performance standard for defining part load performance ratings - IPLV vs. NPLV
  • Importance of peak load and part load analysis in determining the overall capacity and number of chillers
  • Series and parallel arrangement of chillers
  • Operational regimes, infrastructural availability and physical attributes affecting the selection of chillers
  • Procurement strategies, performance specifications, life cycle cost considerations

COURSE TITLE: HVAC Equipment and Systems
COURSE NO: M08-004
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
HVAC Equipment and Systems
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides information on the various types of HVAC heating and cooling equipments along with associated system design aspects. The course describes how to select appropriate HVAC equipment for your application and how to integrate various components as a working system.

 

HVAC system components may be grouped into three functional categories: source components, distribution components, and delivery components. Source components provide or remove heat or moisture. Distribution components convey a heating or cooling medium from a source location to portions of a building that require conditioning. Delivery components serve as an interface between the distribution system and occupied spaces.

 

This course is in continuation to the course titled "HVAC Concepts and Fundamentals", which introduced the basic design aspects, comfort parameters, psychrometrics, heat transfer concepts, heat loss and heat gain calculations and methods to calculate the energy costs, and is posted separately under Course No. M06-012.

 

This 8 PDH online course is intended for people who plan, design, install, and operate HVAC systems for buildings.
