Bell & Gossett Waterside Economization

This four module course will introduce the learner to the concept or waterside economization, often referred to as free cooling because it utilizes a cooling tower and heat exchanger to indirectly cool the chilled water loop, which is used to reject heat from the building via the hydronic coils. In the course you will learn what the ASHRAE 90.1 Energy Standard is and how it is applied to waterside economization systems, learn about the typical design alternatives for waterside economizer systems, the fundamentals of the waterside economizer and the consideration to take into account when using a cooling tower design and finally how plate and frame heat exchangers work and how they are applied in waterside economization systems. Learners must achieve a cumulative score of 60% or higher to pass the course and earn the CEU’s.
