Passive Hybrid Downdraught Cooling
Passive Hybrid Downdraught Cooling (PHDC) is an energy efficient and ecological cooling system that is a real alternative to conventional air conditioning. This course is for people seeking a basic knowledge of PHDC. The course will review the physics behind downdraught cooling and explore its limitations as a solitary cooling system. We’ll look at various systems and strategies that can be used in conjunction with passive downdraught cooling to create a dependably comfortable indoor environment. Case studies cover how climate, site and local considerations impact design choices. Finally, we’ll discuss the LEED credits that this type of hybrid system can contribute.
- Explain the differences between passive downdraught cooling, active downdraught cooling and hybrid downdraught cooling
- Name three technologies that can form effective hybrid systems with passive downdraught cooling
- Discuss how passive cooling might affect a building's form
- Name and briefly explain the LEED credits associated with passive hybrid downdraught cooling
