Cooling load calculation is the most fundamental requirement for any air conditioning system design. The application of psychrometric principles is often regarded as an area of mystery to many air conditioning engineers. However, it is the key for solving many air conditioning problems such as condensations, humidity problems, non-performance at part-load operations etc.

This online course provides a complete overview of the principles of heat transfer and heating and cooling load calculation.

Modul 1. Introduction

Modul 2. Components of Cooling Load

  • Solar radiation through transparent surfaces such as windows
  • Heat conduction through exterior walls and roofs
  • Heat conduction through interior partitions, ceilings and floors
  • Heat generated within the space by occupants, lights, appliances & equipment
