Project: Research project

Description

This project deals with the development, construction, and test of a high-temperature heat pump for temperatures up to ca. 110°C. At the beginning the focus will be laid on the selection of the optimum refrigerant as well as a suitable refrigerant circuit by means of simulation. The heat pump will be equipped with a so-called “separating hood” compressor which must be modified with respect to the refrigerant’s characteristics. The experimental analysis of a functional model of the heat pump at varying boundary conditions should proof the concept. The results will be used to determine technical and economic figures for different applications.
