HVAC and Psychrometric Charts-US Version
* Define psychrometrics * Read a Psychrometric Chart * State the benefits of using a Psychrometric Chart, and * Show various HVAC processes on a Psychrometric Chart
Psychrometrics is the study of the thermodynamic properties of moist air and its effect on materials and human comfort. Psychrometrics applies the well understood relationships between humidity and temperature in the air to practical problems. HVAC system designers use these factors to model the HVAC requirements depending on the location of the building and the needs of the occupants or processes within it. This course explores how those factors are used to ensure an effective HVAC system, while discussing how Psychrometric Charts are utilized to drive HVAC sizing and evaluation.
