Prerequisite
Thermodynamics
Rationale
The course is designed to give fundamental knowledge of types of refrigeration, refrigeration cycles, refrigerants and behavior under various conditions, different air conditioning terms and load calculation, designing of components of air distribution system.
Course Outcome
1. Understand the basic concepts of refrigeration and air conditioning systems
2. Understand and analysis of various refrigeration cycles
3. Make basic calculation of psychometric properties and process
4. Do basic calculations of heating and cooling load requirements of a room.
5. Apply scientific and engineering principles to analyze and design aspects of engineering systems that relate to refrigeration and air conditioning.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
