COURSE TITLE: HVAC - Natural Ventilation Principles and Practices
COURSE NO: M04-038
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
HVAC - Natural Ventilation Principles and Practices
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course outlines the basic principles underlying natural ventilation, and explains how best to proceed with a specific design. It is not intended to be a textbook of natural ventilation; the main aim is to assist designers to quickly establish how their building may be naturally ventilated.

 

Natural ventilation refers to the process of exchanging warm building air for cooler outside air without the use of energy-consuming mechanical devices, such as fans and air conditioners. With an increased awareness of the cost and environmental impacts of energy use, natural ventilation has become an increasingly attractive method for providing acceptable indoor environmental quality and maintaining a healthy, comfortable and productive indoor climate. In favorable climates, natural ventilation can be used as an alternative to air-conditioning systems, saving 10% to 30% of total energy consumption.

 

Natural ventilation is not always as simple as just providing multiple operable windows in a building. Wind patterns specific to the site, as well as building design and its arrangement, play a vital role. However, care must be taken to avoid having a wind tunnel effect in areas of the building, as this obviously provides an undesirable effect of an excessively windy environment.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended for mechanical engineers, architects, building designers, energy auditors, facility managers, property and estate managers, operational and maintenance personnel, and other professionals interested in gaining a better understanding of natural ventilation practices.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding how natural ventilation is different from mechanical ventilation
  • Understanding the purposes and appropriate applications of natural ventilation
  • Learning about wind driven ventilation and the factors that determine the efficiency of wind ventilation
  • Learning about stack driven ventilation and the factors that enhance the stack effect
  • Determining the ventilation rate using contaminant control, heat generation and air change methods
  • Learning about infiltration and how the building porosity impact infiltration
  • Knowing the general guidelines that should be followed when designing for natural ventilation
  • Knowing the design standards and codes that govern the design of natural ventilation
  • Familiarizing with the common design tools and software available for analyzing ventilation systems

COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Cooling Buildings by Natural Ventilation
COURSE NO: A02-007
An Introduction to Cooling Buildings by Natural Ventilation
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides guidance and criteria for the design of buildings to be totally or partially cooled by natural ventilation.  This course describes a variety of natural cooling techniques and the climatic conditions under which they may be considered. Comfort criteria and design considerations for determining and implementing appropriate cooling strategies are described. Building design features and practices are presented for the designer's information. Special considerations related to the integration of mechanical systems and other design issues that will influence comfort and safety are noted.

 

Natural ventilation facilitates the design of buildings that save energy compared to those buildings designed with mechanical cooling. Although "natural ventilation" strictly refers to ventilation induced by external wind or interior thermal buoyancy, the meaning usually includes ventilation from low-powered equipment such as whole-house fans and ceiling fans.

 

This 2 PDH online course is intended for engineers, architects and other design and construction professionals interested to learn the fundamentals of cooling buildings by natural ventilation.

Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding how the building envelope acts as a mediator between the external and internal environment
  • Understanding how the building envelope design and composition affect the interior conditions of the building, its energy consumption and life-cycle cost
  • Learning how to evaluate the success or failure of a building design by examining the expected percentage of time that human thermal comfort will be achieved
  • Understanding how the choice of building cooling strategy is determined from the climate data for the site and an evaluation of what strategies work in different climates
  • Understanding how natural ventilation in buildings is produced by pressure differences between the inside and the outside of the building
  • Understanding how the magnitude of the pressure difference and the resistance to flow across the openings in the envelope will determine the rate of airflow through the openings
  • Learning about convective, radiant, evaporative and earth cooling

COURSE TITLE: Kitchen Makeup Air
COURSE NO: M06-003
Kitchen Makeup Air
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the results of the study which examined a variety of conditions that effect kitchen hood performance, make-up air application strategies, exhaust and supply air quantity comparisons and additional research needed to continue evaluating kitchen ventilation effectiveness and energy use.

 

A universal concern regarding the commercial kitchen space is having an effective ventilation system. A large portion of kitchen ventilation planning is dedicated to properly exhausting cooking effluent. Appliance layout and the energy input are evaluated, hoods are located and specified, the ductwork size and routing are determined, and exhaust fans are specified to remove the proper volume of air. Unfortunately, much less time is usually dedicated to planning how the exhausted volume of air will be replaced, although an air balance schedule is commonly used to indicate the source and quantity of the makeup air.

 

This 6 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding on the effects of makeup air on commercial kitchen exhaust system performance.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Kitchen hood and appliance relationships
  • Cross draft generation
  • Make-up air strategies: displacement, air curtains, face diffusers, 4-way diffusers, short circuit, backwall supply
  • Capture and containment testing
  • Exhaust airflow to supply airflow comparison
  • Test result discussions and comparisons
  • Outcomes specific to make-up air strategies for kitchen ventilation
Course Document

In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the material contained in Makeup Air Effects on Commercial Kitchen Exhaust System Performance, California Energy Commission, P500-03-007F, December 2002.
