PERFORMANCE INVESTIGATION OF AN AIR SOURCE HEAT PUMP FOR RESIDENTIAL HEAT SUPPLY THROUGH PCM UNDERFLOOR HEATING

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Phase change materials (PCMs) incorporated into building underfloor structure material for regulating the heat supply by effective storing the heat from Air source Heat Pump (ASHP) to meet the building demand side requirement are becoming ever-growing factor for installing renewable energy to building heating system.
A two dimensional temperature based finite volume numerical simulation model has been theoretically and experimentally validated for PCM underfloor heating system. A detailed theoretical investigation and analysis of PCM underfloor heating system driven by ASHP have been carried out. The dynamic performance of the heating system for the domestic building has been predicted with different ASHP operation conditions. An optimized operation condition has been suggested.
