Modeling and Exergy Analysis of Seawater Source Heat Pump System
A seawater source heat pump (SWHP) system refers to the utilization of solar energy stored in sea water as heat source and heat sink , offer an attractive option for heating and cooling residential and commercial buildings owing to their higher energy efficiency compared with conventional systems The purpose of this study is to present an exergy analysis of a SWHP system The exergy transports between the components and the consumptions in each of the components of the SWHP system were determined for the average measured parameters obtained from the experimental results. In addition the exergy loss was presented for the SWHP system studied to give quantitative information regarding the proportion of the exergy input that is dissipated in the various system components.
