HVAC and Characteristics of Air-SI Version
* Define sensible and latent heat, and enthalpy * Calculate the heat flow in an HVAC system given input parameters * Define wet-bulb and dry-bulb temperature, and dew point, and understand their relevance to management of humidity in HVAC systems
HVAC & Characteristics of Air introduces some basic HVAC terms that are useful when looking at the efficiency of an HVAC system. This course discusses how an HVAC system manipulates the properties of the air in the conditioned space to regulate a desirable rate of heat transfer. Calculations for Sensible Heat Transfer and Total Heat Transfer are also explained.
