[Online] District Cooling System Design (MENA)

May 14 @ 3:00 pm - May 15 @ 6:00 pm

Course Description

District cooling has the potential to provide a sustainable solution to meet cooling requirements in the Middle East. Apart from providing cooling needs, district cooling is more reliable, more energy efficient, and has less negative environmental impact in the region than standard approaches to air-conditioning.

To improve the design of district cooling systems (DCS), in 2019 ASHRAE published two practical guides to implement district cooling: District Cooling Guide, Second Edition and Owner’s Guide for Buildings Served by District Cooling. Each guide contains a wealth of information on system components and enhancements, troubleshooting problems, and the integration of components into district cooling systems for both designers and building owners.

With MENA countries likely to grow rapidly and urbanize further in coming decades, don’t miss your opportunity to learn from leading industry experts on the requirements of planning, designing, and operating district cooling systems.

This course presents practical guidance contained in two ASHRAE publications referenced above, ensuring that when designed and operated properly, DCS can be an energy-efficient alternative to conventional in-building chilled water plant adding to an owner’s sustainability portfolio and allowing the building owner to focus on their own business, rather than operating and maintaining a chilled water plant.

DCS can provide buildings subscribing to their service with chilled water for comfort and process cooling with the benefits to the building owner of greatly reduced or eliminated maintenance cost, much lower space requirements, and no concerns as to plant capacity or load growth. This 6-hour course covers what designers and owners need to know about district cooling to enable it to provide energy efficiencies and reliable operation.

Topics covered include Planning, Central Plant Design, Distribution System design, Building Interfaces, Thermal Energy Storage, and Operation and Maintenance. The instructors will take attendees through the guidance provided in the ASHRAE District Cooling Guide, Second Edition and the ASHRAE Owner’s Guide for Buildings Served by District Cooling, tools made available from ASHRAE to advance the successful applications and use of district cooling technology.
