Single-Course Danish 10 ECTS

Advanced mechanical installations

Overall Course Objectives

Through the teaching and self-study, the student will acquire knowledge about the choice of installation principles and management strategy for mechanical installations in complex buildings.

Learning Objectives

  • Evaluate and analyze forms of energysupply for building installations
  • Assess and project advanced heating and ventilation as well as cooling and sprinkler systems for a larger building.
  • Use LCA and LCC to evaluate different designs of mechanical installations.
  • Prepare a main project for selected mechanical installations.
  • Use BIM as a design and dimensioning tool for mechanical installations.
  • Develop measurement and management strategy for a complex Building.
  • Compile selected HVAC parts of preliminary and main projects for CTS plants, including functional descriptions and principle diagrams for selected plants
  • Use of indoor climate simulation for planning heating, cooling and ventilation systems
  • Opportunities to choose to perform a self-chosen special project within mechanical installations.

Course Content

Mechanical installations are necessary for us to provide a good indoor climate and to ensure comfort in all buildings.
The course includes project proposals, for mechanical installations for a complicated building, with functional descriptions and principle diagrams, as well as an LCC and LCA calculation for evaluating different designs of mechanical installations.

Procurement / export project is carried out for selected areas within sprinkling, heating, cooling, ventilation, domestic water and associated CTS control.

There will be opportunities to carry out a self-chosen special project within mechanical installations.
