Gábor L. Szabó PhD - assistant lecturer

  • Research field
    The climate change in summer (and transitional as well) seasons affects the efforts in reducing energy consumption negatively. In the buildings energy balance the share of cooling will increase either. If we wish to be energy efficient, the cooling system of the building need to be designed accordingly. Therefore, to be environmentally conscious, the energy used by cooling systems ought to be gained from renewable sources. In his research, he investigates the absorption and adsorption chiller, the fan-coil units and the radiant cooling system. Furthermore, he performs a complex energy and exergy analysis’s of the entire cooling system and some of its the components.
