Psychrometrics (I-P), 1.5 PDHs (AIA)


This course covers the theory behind and use of the psychrometric chart, the origin of the chart and how it is used in the process of determining HVAC requirements. This course will familiarize the learner with the use of the chart and the information that can be determined for atmospheric air knowing two of the conditions of that air. Learn about the four processes that can be determine by using the chart (heating, cooling, humidification and dehumidification). (I-P), 1.5 PDHs. AIA approved.

Learn about the four processes that can be determine by using the chart (heating, cooling, humidification and dehumidification).

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • List basic principles upon which the psychrometric chart is based and how the chart came to be used within the HVAC&R industry
  • Describe the thermodynamic properties that affect air conditioning, and how they are represented on the chart (Dry-bulb temperature, Wet-bulb temperature, Humidity ratio, Enthalpy, Relative humidity, Specific volume)
  • Discuss the HVAC processes that are represented on the psychrometric chart, such as humidification, dehumidification, heating, cooling, heating and humidification, heating and dehumidification, cooling and humidification, cooling and dehumidification
  • Explain how to calculate the airflow required to cool a space.

This course is approved by AIA. It can be subscribed to independently, as a part of the AC and Refrigeration Principles Course Package, Fundamentals: HVAC Systems Course Package, or Fundamentals eLibrary.
