    QF Level: 5
    Credit Points: 3
    Year: 3
    Pre-requisite: HVACR I
    Co-requisite: Nil
    Module Aim(s): This module aims to enable students to design water systems in heating and air-conditioning for buildings by taking into consideration the part-load characteristics of the systems and their environmental impacts.  It also aims to develop students’ competence to make relevant decisions that complies to requirement on energy efficiency of buildings and air-conditioning systems.  Throughout the module, students could practice their application of theories and develop competence for further study of system commissioning skills.
    Objectives: On completion of this Module, students are expected to be able to:
    1. design HVAC water systems for providing air conditioning in buildings;
    2. analyse and quantify the impact of the heat rejection medium on the coefficient of performance and energy use of chiller systems;
    3. evaluate the performance of cooling towers on the basis of heat and mass transfer theories;
    4. select appropriate refrigeration and control systems; and
    5. explain the key design concerns and compare the performance of heating systems and equipment in buildings.
    Assessment Methods: • In-class test (15%)
    • Laboratory work (10%)
    • Examination (60%)
    • Mini design project (15%)
