hybridGEOTABS will be holding a Training Course

"How to design hybridGEOTABS buildings' components"

at CLIMA 2019 at the National Library of Romania:

 

Course description

hybridGEOTABS refers to the integration of geothermal heat pumps in combination with Thermally Activated Building Systems (GEOTABS) with secondary heating and cooling systems. Optimum energy management in these hybrid installations requires a model predictive control (MPC) which decides between different production sources and distribution systems.

 

This course deals with some specific components of hybridGEOTABS (hG) installations, presenting them in the context of the necessary holistic design: 

 

  • optimised design of borehole fields
  • optimised design of geothermal heat pumps, in relation with hG primary and secondary systems,
  • optimised design of TABS 
  • system management with model predictive control algorithms 
 

Learning objectives

  • Learn the key aspects of borehole design and how to integrate them in a complex HVAC system managed by control algorithms
  • Learn the various design options available for heat-pump and how to choose them based on the system requirements
  • Learn the key aspects of TABS design and how it relates with complementary distribution systems.
  • Get an overview on MPC and its potential in hybridGEOTABS buildings
 

Teachers

  • Hector Cano, Geoter
  • Jan Hoogmartens, Viessmann
  • Qian Wang, Uponor/KTH
  • Lieve Helsen, KULeuven
