The course has also been run as internal training for several clients including: Coresource , Terajoule and Mitsubishi Electric.
The course primarily considers the design of vertical, borehole-based heat exchange systems although it touches also on horizontal loops and much of the day is given over to solving practical exercises using spreadsheet-based algorithms and the professional design tool " Earth Energy Designer version 3 ", produced by Blocon of Lund, Sweden. The course content is as follows:. Description About the Author Permissions Table of contents. Selected type: Hardcover.
Added to Your Shopping Cart. This authoritative guide provides a basis for understanding the emerging technology of ground source heating and cooling.
It equips engineers, geologists, architects, planners and regulators with the fundamental skills needed to manipulate the ground's huge capacity to store, supply and receive heat, and to implement technologies such as heat pumps to exploit that capacity for space heating and cooling. About the Author David Banks is one of the Britain's leading hydrogeologists and has been instrumental in promoting ground source heating and cooling within the UK.
Unwanted changes to the abstraction water temperature, caused by flow of higher or lower temperature injected water towards the abstraction borehole, have the potential to render a system inoperable in a short period of time.
This effect is termed thermal interference. A GSHP system that has a balanced annual thermal load, i. Assessing the risks at the design stage requires a good knowledge of the hydrogeology, the thermal properties of the aquifer and adjacent rocks and how thermal energy is transported by water flow and heat conduction through rocks. This is often done by the use of numerical groundwater models that incorporate heat energy abstracted or re-injected to the ground by the building.
Such modelling requires an in depth understanding of planned building heating and cooling loads and how they impact water re-injection temperatures. The models can be also used to validate the thermal sustainability of proposed alterations to the building design and how this will impact the available groundwater resource and are thus an invaluable tool for hydrogeologists and building service engineers alike.
However, as these schemes become more common and potentially closer together, there are both technical and regulatory challenges that must be met if the successful and sustainable use of this technology is to both continue and increase, and thus make a real contribution to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
