Study of a compression-absorption heat-pump model.

Etude d'un modèle de pompe à chaleur à compression-absorption.

Author(s) : BRUNIN O., HIVET B., FEIDT M.


A model of a compression-absorption heat pump model is presented. The heat exchanges are modelled by a conductance and two minimal temperature differences. The power transfered is the product of the conductance multiplied by the difference of the average thermodynamic temperatures. The desorption and the absorption are represented in a Temperature-Concentration diagram. The reference operational point of the model is presented. The effect of the isentropic efficiency and of the conductances are described. The choice of a rich-weak concentration difference is explained, along with that of an average concentration.
