The course deals with HVAC for small pleasure yachts and sails
The unit provides students with concepts of HVAC operating principles and relevant systems, with particular concern to the systems installed on the pleasure crafts.
The students, practising with the calculation of the size of the components for a small climatization system, will develop the capability of looking critically at the projects for chiller and fan-coils systems, for small yachts.
The educational activities are organized into 48 hours of theoretical classes.
Part of the course will deal with the preliminary design of a chiller & fan coils system for a small pleasure yacht or sail.
Principle of cooling, inverse cycles. Psychometry and main transformation of humid air.
Thermal comfort: Ashrae 55 and ISO 7730. Heat and mass balance of building: evaluation of thermal loads.
Main configurations of AC plants: Split systems, Water systems, Air systems.
Part of the course will focus the plants commonly employed on yachts.
All class schedules are posted on the EasyAcademy portal.
The oral examination will be based on the discussion of the report about the preliminary design of a chiller & fan coils system for a small pleasure yacht or sail, which will be prepared by students.
The assessment of students' skill is based on their capability of explaining and sustaining the choices they made, about the preliminary design of the HVAC for a small pleasure yacht
