Understand the Cooling and Ventilation System Design for Data Center

Air Conditioning System Design for Data Center
(23 - 24 March 2017, approved CPD course by CIBSE UK)

It targets to engineers involved in designing or handling HVAC (Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning) equipment for mission critical facilities, IT infrastructure and data center projects.

All sessions highlight design principles such as psychrometric chart, cooling load calculation / estimation, etc. and the design considerations such as air distribution, availability / redundancy, common mistakes, Computer Fluid Dynamic (CFD) model, integration with MEPs (Mechanical, Electrical and Plumbing system), etc.

You'll be able to make informed decisions about the best choices of cooling systems for mission critical purposes and how system can best meet the project goal and SLA (Service Level Agreement).

Date: 23 - 24 March 2017 (Thursday - Friday)
Time: 10:00 - 17:30
Venue: 14/F, On Lok Yuen Building, 25-27A Des Voeux Road Central, Hong Kong
Fee: Special rate for CIBSE / HKIE all membership classes
