Principles of Mechanical Refrigeration Level 1

Air conditioning is all about moving heat energy, by either adding or removing it from one place and moving it to another. This module deals with the way heat is moved from a place of lower temperature to a place of higher temperature in a process called mechanical refrigeration. This process is used in preserving the food we eat and for comfort air conditioning. Much of the equipment discussed in other TDP modules dealing with equipment uses the principles discussed in this module. A designer needs a thorough understanding of the concepts of mechanical refrigeration to create the best performing and cost effective projects. The Principles of Mechanical Refrigeration is divided into two books, Level 1, Introduction, and Level 2, Analysis. Before proceeding to the equipment TDPs, the information in the Level 1 Introductory material should be understood. Level 2, Analysis, will provide a better understanding of how to evaluate unit performance and select refrigeration components. Several other TDP modules pick up where this one leaves off on other specific topics related to mechanical refrigeration, a list is included at the back of this book.
