Air Conditioning and HVAC Course

Air Conditioning and HVAC Course

Papandayan Hotel, Bandung | March 8-12, 2010 | Rp.8.250.000,-


This 5 day course is designed to broaden and increase knowledge of all participants on the industrial refrigeration system which includes HVAC system. In detail, the discussion will cover its selection, operation, maintenance and load calculation of air management.

To make this course more comprehensive, there will be an actual practice for all participants in the thermodynamic laboratory ITB.

The instructors will also first talk about the basic theory of the cooling and air conditioning system. Further more, the participant will also learn about refrigeration system, its components, selection guideline, characteristic of each components, operation and maintenance of the industrial refrigeration system.

DR. Ir. I Made Astina, M.Eng. is currently assistant professor of mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering ITB. He graduated from Mechanical Engineering Department ITB in 1992. Prior to his Ph.D. obtainment in Engineering (thermodynamics, school of science for open and environmental systems) from Keio University Tokyo, Japan in 2004, he received Master of Science in Engineering (mechanical engineering department) from the same university in 1997. His researches concern on thermodynamic, development of new thermal systems, thermodynamic cycles, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. His papers were published in international and national journals, besides he also presents his papers in international and national seminars. Besides teaching at the university, he also has experiences to give short courses for industrial practical engineers and publics and to collaborate practical consultant works.

Dr. Ir. Nathanael P. Tandian completed his undergraduate study in the Mechanical Engineering Department ITB in 1983, then he joined the Mechanical Engineering Department of ITB as a faculty member (1984) and later the Thermodynamics Laboratory as a research staff (1985). He continued his graduate program at the University of Minnesota USA and got his MSME (1991). In 1994 he received his Ph.D. in the area of Thermodynamics and Head Transfer. He has been being intensively involved in many researches, technical training and seminars of refrigeration and thermal system. He has also been involved in several collaborative projects with oil and gas industries.
