Program Description

The course provides key design techniques and practical application aspects in designing HVAC systems. The course takes the learner through the typical process of designing HVAC systems, particularly for Buildings, with various applications. This course will help learners to design HVAC systems for buildings with a practical approach and real time methods used in the industry. The course covers the fundamental concepts of Air-conditioning and refrigeration systems along with the important calculations, standards used to design efficient air-conditioning and ventilation systems. Learner will also gain knowledge on various life safety systems used in buildings during fire / emergency conditions. Real time examples of Heat load calculations, Chiller piping size calculations, condenser piping size calculations, Pump head calculations are taught to students in this course by L&T’s Subject matter experts who themselves have worked on designing many iconic buildings in India and abroad. Learners are also taught about various types of HVAC equipment’s, building side components, valves, and variable refrigerant flow system. This information with real time site installation photographs will help learners understand the systems and components with better clarity.

Enables learner to:

  • Associate with the concepts of HVAC system design for buildings and apply the concepts to solve the Real-World Applications
  • Identify the various types of Ventilation and Air Conditioning Systems
  • List the various equipment used for HVAC Systems
