About this course:
This is the third course in HVAC. Large individual buildings and campuses usually rely on a central cooling and heating plant for their need of chilled water and hot water or steam. The design of a central plant requires knowledge of chillers, boilers, cooling towers, pumps and water loops. Students will go through the steps of designing a typical central plant. Major manufacturer and commercially available products also will be introduced.
