This course will teach students about the systematic breakdown of the refrigeration cycle as it travels through an HVAC system. Students will understand the relationship between refrigerant pressure and temperature. Students will learn about the basic vapor-compression refrigeration cycle, as well as more complicated ideas like superheating and subcooling.
Students will be taught the pressure enthalpy chart, which is a tool used to identify issues in an HVAC system. The pressure enthalpy chart allows engineers to build a picture of an entire system. Once students can identify the plotting of systems on a pressure enthalpy chart, they can better identify problems in refrigeration systems. An understanding of pressure enthalpy charts is essential when troubleshooting HVAC systems.
Students who complete this course will receive an Employment Ready Certificate.
