Intended learning outcomes *
The aim of the course is give advanced knowledge in handling of different tasks in the areas of heating, cooling and indoor climate. A broad range of energy systems for various types of buildings is treated in lectures, seminars with guest lecturers from industry, study visits, calculation exercises and project work.
After passing the course, the students should be able to:
â¢ Describe the indoor climate requirements for thermal comfort
â¢ Discuss the energy use to achieve thermal comfort in various types of buildings
â¢ Carry out calculations of heating and cooling needs for buildings
â¢ Describe the principles of heat pump technology for heating and cooling in buildings.
â¢ Identify the most important differences between different energy system solutions for buildings.
â¢ Explain the functions of the most important components in heating and cooling system.
â¢ Use known principles and tools to solve and analyse problems within heating and cooling in buildings.
â¢ Design new, highly efficient energy systems for buildings
â¢ Think outside the box and improve the existing and the conventional energy solutions for buildings
