ACMV systems are a major energy consumer in hot humid Singapore. Energy managers need a basic knowledge of ACMV systems to run the ACMV plant and equipment. Besides meeting the objectives of providing thermal comfort to occupants and other requirements, the energy manager must have the skills to operate the plant in an energy efficient manner. This module aims to integrate knowledge of thermodynamics, heat transfer and fluid mechanics to analyse the operating conditions of the ACMV plant with the objective of energy optimization.
Participants will be equipped with the understanding of:
