Short Course Description
This online seminar provides a fundamental background for design and development of world-class automotive HVAC systems.
With emphasis on quality, efficiency and safety, engineer Gregg Peterson presents this seminar by drawing upon three decades aero-thermal experience at automotive companies such as General Motors and Lotus Engineering.
Working knowledge of thermodynamics and automotive systems is recommended.
Eight streamed lecture modules include theoretical concepts and real-world case studies presented on the following HAVC topics:
- Vehicle thermal loads
- Key related systems and AC system
- Operational principles
- AC system refrigerant side and air components
- HVAC module components
- Psycohmetric and pressure enthalpy charts
- AC system sizing
- HVAC Control
- Air distribution, refrigerant and coolants
- Performance targets
weighting programs for automotive and non-automotive applications in aerospace, military, commercial vehicles and agriculture, as well as
government-funded studies used for developing future US fuel economy standards. Gregg holds 12 patents in multidisciplinary fields and is a
member of the external advisory board at the Center for Automotive Research.
