Central Heat Plant Planning
The Central Heat Plant Planning online PDH course is a part of the Mechanical Engineering category of courses. This course contains data and information as criteria to guide the planning of steam and high temperature water (HTW) central and individual heating plants. Engineering and economic considerations are identified to guide siting decisions, fuel selection, and the choice of either high temperature water or steam distribution media. The primary purpose of these plants is to generate steam and high temperature water for space heat and process steam in the most economical, operationally efficient, and environmentally acceptable manner possible for distribution to groups of buildings.
This course is intended for all engineers, architects and construction professionals interested in planning of central heat plant.
At the end of the course, you will learn about:
- application requirements for heating plants;
- recommended criteria for central heating plants;
- recommended criteria for cogeneration plants;
- recommended criteria for expansion and/or rehabilitation of existing plants;
- criteria for standby facilities;
- consideration of steam versus high-temperature-water plants; and
- principles of plant layout.
