CSD700 - Applied Water System Design

Class Description

Larger commercial buildings often use chilled water distribution systems rather than packaged or split system DX (Direct Expansion). This course centers around the skills and knowledge needed to design an applied chilled water system for a multiple-zoned commercial building. In this course participants learn how to zone a building when more than one building zone and air handler are served from one central chilled water plant. Participants will learn how initial decisions, load estimates, and equipment selection are impacted when applied water systems will be used. The course covers various piping and pumping systems, the selection of chillers, pumps, cooling towers, and control valves. Students learn to design dedicated ventilation systems that achieve required zone ventilation, to design the piping distribution system and develop the systemís control sequence for a chilled water system. The course addresses the application of fan coil and chilled beam systems as well as air handlers applied on constant and variable volume systems. Participants use workshops to apply the material covered in the class to a typical project. Computer-assisted work sessions are used to practice the skills.

Students will learn to:

  • Make initial decisions based on a chilled water system and choose building control zones.
  • Layout and select room fan coil units.
  • Select the number and type of chillers from the options available.
  • Identify types of chillers and pumping distribution systems and select appropriate control valves.
  • Layout and select a cooling tower and a plate-frame heat exchanger.
  • Design a chilled water piping system and a condenser water piping system.
  • Select pumps for the piping systems and determine the pumping power.
  • Design a dedicated ventilation system using an applied air handler.
  • Determine the control sequence and control components required to control a complete chilled water system.

A cumulative score of 70% is required to pass this course. The score is a combination of attendance, class participation, and a demonstration of skills and knowledge through quizzes and/or work sessions.

Suggested Prerequisites: CSD400 and a working knowledge of computers. Students are encouraged to bring their own computer, but it is not required.
