The energy study on the UNIMAS Faculty of Engineering buildings

By Binti Abdul Rahim. Haslina


The main objective was to study the energy usage in Faculty of Engineering office, Electronic and Telecommunication Engineering, and Civil Engineering building. The study is focusing in cooling or air-conditioning system. This study involved research and analysis, where inside and outside temperature were taken using Digital Thermometer (Thermoset). The relationship between the inside and outside temperature is determined through the knowledge of heat transfer. In addition, with these data different heat loss of material construction include concrete wall, wood (wall and door) and glass window was then be determined. The result of this study determined the energy usage in building much as of the air-conditioning system. The research is suggested recommendations for optimum energy usage and saving energy cost. The relationship obtained from this study is then used as a reference guide for the energy saving
