Face to face
Module 1: Psychrometrics (numerical calculation of moist air properties, typical transformations). Thermal comfort.
Module 2: Modelling of typical elements of HAVC systems
Module 3: Modelling and simulation of HVAC systems coupled to buildings
Tutorial 1: Calculation of moist air properties and matrix formulation of models
Tutorial 2: Numerical modelling of HVAC systems
Tutorial 3: Coupling HVAC systems and complex buildings
Accompanied individual mini-project:
Air mixing and heating
Air-mixing, heating, humidification
Heat recovery, heating, adiabatic humidification
heat recovery and cooling
Autonomous group project:
The students will define their own subject on indoor climate control (temperature and humidity): a building and its HVAC system will be modelled. On this model, optimisation of design parameters and energy management will be done. Examples of projects: detached house, school, office building, green house, supermarket, research laboratory, restaurant.
