Heating Performance Investigations on Two Applications of a Solar Assisted Air Source Heat Pump System

Abstract:

Article Preview

A solar assisted air source heat pump (SAASHP) system is proposed to improve heating performance of air source heat pump (ASHP).The proposed system has been applied in two buildings, a series of experimental investigations were conducted in the both applications, it indicated that the SAASHP system gets better heating performance than ASHP system, the coefficient of performance (COP) gets 10% and 65% increase respectively in two applications. It is also concluded that the ratio of solar collector area to construction area significantly affects the improvement of heating performance in SAASHP system. This work may promote further research and more applications of SAASHP system.
