Energy considerations in heat pump technology.

Author(s) : GRANRYD E.


Different applications and systems are discussed from an energetic efficiency point of view. Refrigerants and important losses of compression type refrigerant cycles are exemplified and a general overview is given, of different heat sources and of primary energy demand for heat pumps. Finally an example is given related to heat pumps for domestic house heating. By means of computer simulations the influence of a number of different design parameters of the heat pump system have been analyzed and the results are exemplified.
