Solar thermal plants and absorption cooling

The utilisation of renewable energy sources is an important contribution for the energy-efficient operation of buildings. In particular, the conversion of solar heat into cold represents an exciting possibility of process interlinking.

Enquiries and registration: Mail to training@gfr.de
Course duration: One day

Course contents:

  • Essential benefits of renewable energies
  • Solar thermal plants
  • Functional principles, fields of application, construction types
  • Evaluation / operating behaviour / measurements
  • Constructional requirements
  • Plants for solar cooling
  • Basics of refrigeration
  • Functional principle of an absorption chiller
  • Evaluation / operating behaviour / measurements
  • Constructional requirements and recooling
  • Example: solar cooling plant

 

Learning targets/ benefits:
The participants of this training get an overview of possible applications of solar thermal plants in enterprises. By doing so, the energy consumption and CO2 emissions can be reduced. In particular, the usage of summer heat for the cooling of company buildings increases the annual utilisation of the solar plant tremendously.

Target group: 
Licensees, operators and service technicians who plan, operate and run the system

Prerequisites for attendance:

  • Thorough knowledge of heating, ventilation and air-conditioning plants, e.g. participation in course “Control strategies and hydraulics in buildings”

Group size:
Three to six participants
