Fundamentals of Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) for Air and Surface Disinfection

  Date: Sunday, May 22, 2022
Time: 13:00 – 16:00
Location: Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre, Ahoyweg 10, 3084 BA Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Course Summary: A comprehensive introduction to how ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) can be used in conjunction with HVAC systems to improve indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and reduce airborne disease transmission is the focus of the course. The course surveys the history and development of UVGI from its beginnings in the 19th century to the present, describes the fundamentals of the germicidal action of UVGI and characteristics of UVGI sources, common system types and their applications, the economics of UVGI, and practical considerations including material degradation, maintenance and safety. Case studies are used to illustrate typical applications.

Smart HVAC Solutions for Climate Design

  Date: Sunday, May 22, 2022
Time: 13:00 – 16:00
Location: Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre, Ahoyweg 10, 3084 BA Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Course Summary: This course is based on the new ASHRAE Cold-Climate Buildings Design Guide, 2nd edition, and the forthcoming ASHRAE Hot-Climate Buildings Design Guide. It also references the work and guidance of ASHRAE’s Epidemic Task Force and Task Force for Building Decarbonization.

There are several special considerations for very cold and very hot climates: remoteness, HVAC function (the need for maintenance, repairs - frost bite in cold, heat stroke in hot), reliable supply of fuels, high energy use (heat in winter, coolth in summer), low to high humidity, freeze protection, equipment overheating and the need to consider how impending climate change will increase these requirements in the future. Engineers must design HVAC systems which can operate effectively and reliably throughout these conditions whilst ensuring system efficiency, energy efficiency, low GHG emissions; while adhering to the new guidance that has been published to reduce risks of airborne infection during pandemic threats; and while meeting net zero energy targets and carbon reduction goals. Guidance on what provisions should be made now will be covered. 

Passive systems and applications (such as natural ventilation in places where external air will range from subzero to extremely hot), hybrid passive and mechanical heating and ventilation applications, and common pitfalls for cold and hot climate design will also be discussed.
