SITizens Learning Credits

Overview

Chiller plants are an essential part of buildings and consume a significant amount of energy. This course focuses on the fundamental operations of HVAC components (comprising chilled water and air handling systems), measurement and data acquisition and analytics to determine the specific energy consumption (SEC) of the chilled water and air handling systems. During the course, participants will be tasked to measure and analyse at least 2 weeks of HVAC components raw data, propose potential energy saving opportunities and design improvement concept through the group presentation.
