Deep Boreholes in GSHP Systems: Pressure Considerations & Installation Practices

Online

Length: 1 module

Instructor: Ryan Carda, P.E.

Subjects: Renewable HVAC: HVAC Design, Renewable HVAC: Geothermal

Description

Factors such as space limitations are forcing engineers to utilize deep boreholes to meet design requirements for ground source heat pump (GSHP) systems.

In such cases, hydrostatic pressures must be considered to ensure successful installation can take place. This course focuses on the necessary calculations along with the recommended installation practices for deep geothermal borehole design and installation.

Who should enroll? Geothermal system designers, but particularly architects and engineers involved in commercial system design. You'll get access to the lecture video, an Excel calculator, and additional resources.
