Mathematical Optimization Techniques And Applications To HVAC&R Systems And Their Components

Short Course:
Mathematical Optimization Techniques and their Applications to HVAC&R Systems and Components

Course Length: 3 hours

Improved HVAC&R system designs can be obtained when a rigorous approach to optimization is employed. This course describes proven optimization techniques and introduces the concept of systematic optimization via real-world examples that show striking gains in lower manufacturing costs and/or higher performance of the resulting designs. Excel-based examples focus on duct and chilled water system designs and aim to minimize lifecycle cost while meeting performance requirements. The course further discusses optimization of individual components such as heat exchangers as well as optimization of a system (fan-coil units, air-conditioners, etc.). Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop computer.
