Berkeley Extension Service Corrected:
& Design Considerations
Offered Fall 2018
HVAC System Design Considerations, a core course for the UC Berkeley Extension/Golden Gate Chapter co-sponsored HVAC/R certificate program (http://www.unex.berkeley.edu/cert/hvac.html) will be offered this fall. This is a practical course to help students select the correct mechanical systems and components for various building types and applications. It first covers a review of all major generation components such as single and multi-zone package units, heat pumps, floor-by-floor units, splits, VRV, induction units, chilled beams, radiant slabs, Air handling units and components, fans, pumps, cooling towers, chiller types. The class also covers distribution methods such as duct distribution methods including VAV reheat, Dual Duct and DOAS, and piping systems such as primary only, primary-secondary and primary/secondary/tertiary pumping systems.
review, these components are then combined into complete systems, with
the major guiding question being how to choose the most appropriate
system, given the infinite array of possible combinations. The
selection of an appropriate system is always guided by first cost,
energy consumption, comfort and available space. In almost every
project, there are many possible appropriate systems but also many
clearly inappropriate system selections.
A successful student will discover the art and science of making choices in selection through many class exercises and case studies that illustrate the concepts and theory with actual buildings and designs.
The course is taught by Reinhard Seidl of Taylor Engineering. This course is only offered once a year.
