Course overview


Introduction to VPF chilled water systems

In this module, you will learn about benefits of Variable Primary Flow systems and how Grundfos variable speed pumps based on Delta P control can help optimise HVAC systems to lower energy consumption.


Challenges for chilled water systems and total cost of ownership

In this module, you will learn about some of the challenges facing air conditioning systems with particular focus on low Delta T syndrome, and how FLOWLIMIT can improve Delta T to reduce the total cost of ownership.


The potential saved penalty from improved Delta T in buildings with district cooling

In this module, you learn how to use a value calculation tool that helps you understand the value of increasing Delta T with Grundfos iSOLUTIONS products or solutions and keeping it within the range required by the district cooling utility.
