Building and HVAC Systems Simulation
- Department of Environmental Engineering
Capita selecta of modeling and simulation in HVAC engineering with focus on air flow in buildings, solar heating technology and control of HVAC systems.
This course follows up on E162009.
Follow-up course for students who completed E162009 Introduction to Building Performance Simulation.
- Syllabus of lectures:
Air flow nodal network modeling, solar systems modeling, modeling of air-conditioning devices and their control.
- Syllabus of tutorials:
Simulation of pressure stack effect, air flow in a double-skin facade, tunnel ventilation, solar system for water heating, solar system combined with heat pump, control loop modeling, basic types of controllers, simulation of air-conditioning systems (plant simulation), coupling with builiding thermal model and air flow model.
