The course deals with methods for energy evaluation of buildings, the legislative requirements.
Energy evaluation for project activities and energy audits. Energy evaluation of the operation of heating and ventilation systems for the preparation and distribution of hot water, lighting systems, pumps and fans, cooling systems, technological equipment and other energy products. Design energy-saving measures. Software applications for energy calculations.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The aim is to deepen the skills and knowledge of construction techniques and thermal power plant.
