Evaporative air-cooling is an environmentally friendly and energy efficient method of cooling air using water as cooling medium. Compared to air-conditioning which uses mechanical refrigeration, the evaporative cooling can effectively meet the objectives of comfort cooling using one-fourth the energy of conventional equipment. But the limitation is that it is effective only in certain arid and dry climates. Before you can decide if evaporative cooling will work in your situation you should understand exactly how it works.
This 5 - hour course discusses some of the pertinent design issues and guidelines for evaporative cooling systems.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
