VDE basics of technical heat theory for refrigeration machines

Willenbockel, Dirk Basics of technical heat theory for refrigerating machines Thermodynamics for refrigeration engineers

The book describes thermodynamics (technical heat theory) with regard to their practical application in refrigeration machines and heat pumps. The examples used therefore relate to refrigeration system technology. The exercises are based on the training to become a mechatronics technician for refrigeration technology. The types of heat transfer are presented in detail and how they work in the real machine or refrigeration system. Other topics include the different states of matter and the transition from one to the other, as well as an introduction to the thermodynamics of moist air (psychrometry). The new series Refrigeration · Air Conditioning · Ventilation | KOMPAKT enables practitioners, side and career changers as well as young professionals to quickly familiarize themselves with individual topics of refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation technology. It is created in close cooperation between VDE VERLAG and cci Dialog GmbH.

After studying electrical engineering at the University of Hanover, Dirk Willenbockel first worked as a project engineer at Hebeke Kältetechnik and later in sales at a specialist wholesaler in Hamburg. He then switched to the North German Refrigeration Technical School, where he taught prospective refrigeration system builders and mechatronics technicians in refrigeration technology. As technical director of Didaktik 24-7, Wedel, Dirk Willenbockel conducts courses for the TGA area.
