An Analysis of Energy Savings on the Solar-Absorption Heat Pump Systems for the Residential Use with the consideration of Annual Performance
연간 성능을 고려한 가정용 태양열-흡수식 히트펌프의 에너지 절약효과 분석
Studies on the annual performance of three different type of solar-absorption heat pump system (parallel type, series type, and generator type) are carried out by using the computer simulation. These include the calculation of solar energy from the solar collector, and the revision of computer package, developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory, to predict the annual performance. Finally using weather data and load conditions, the annual performance are obtained. Results show that the annual operating costs of three solar-absorption heat pump systems are almost same values and 44% lower than that of the pure absorption heat pump system. The total annual input energys of solar-absorption heat pump systems are also about 44% lower than that of the pure absorption heat pump. The nominal size of the solar-absorption heat pump systems can be reduced to a value of 55% that of the pure absorption heat pump that would normally be specified under identical conditions.
