Module content
Lectures (15h):
Psychrometry of air conditioning processes

The lecture topics cover issues related to the psychrometry of air conditioning processes. During the lecture following issues will be disscused: psychrometric chart for humid air, air mixing stages, heating and air cooling in the conditions of sensible heat exchange, air drying, air humidification, including: air humidification by water injection, air humidification by steam injection; cooling and drying of air with secondary heating, humidification of air with pre-heating and secondary heating, mixing and adiabatic saturation of air with secondary heating, usage of dry steam for humidification, saturation, sorption drying.

Project classes (15h):
Psychrometry of air conditioning processes

Selection of the method of humidifying and drying the air in various climatic conditions. Calculation of air parameters after mixing. Preparation and work on the project. Presentation of partial results in English. Oral assessment of the project.

Additional information
Teaching methods and techniques:
  • Lectures: The content presented at the lecture is provided in the form of a multimedia presentation in combination with a classical lecture panel enriched with demonstrations relating to the issues presented.
  • Project classes: Students carry out the project on their own without major intervention. This is to create a sense of responsibility for group work and responsibility for making decisions.
Warunki i sposób zaliczenia poszczególnych form zajęć, w tym zasady zaliczeń poprawkowych, a także warunki dopuszczenia do egzaminu:

Exercises end with an oral examination of the project in English.

Participation rules in classes:
  • Lectures:
    – Attendance is mandatory: No
    – Participation rules in classes: Students participate in classes learning further content of teaching according to the syllabus of the subject. Students should constantly ask questions and explain doubts. An audiovisual recording of the lecture requires the teacher's consent.
  • Project classes:
    – Attendance is mandatory: Yes
    – Participation rules in classes: Students perform practical work aimed at obtaining competences assumed by the syllabus. The project implementation method and the final result are subject to evaluation.
Method of calculating the final grade:

The final mark is 100% of the assessment of project exercises.

Sposób i tryb wyrównywania zaległości powstałych wskutek nieobecności studenta na zajęciach:

The method of equalizing the arrears will be determined individually between the teacher and the student.

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Knowledge of the basics of thermodynamics of water evaporation processes, humid air, its physico-chemical properties and transformations
