Comparative Evaluation of Different Computational Models for Performance of Air Source Heat Pumps Based on Real World Data

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

To reduce energy usage and CO2 emission due to heating, heat pumps have turned out a good option. For example, to obtain a net zero house, often a combination of solar panels and a heat pump is used. A computational model of the performance of a heat pump provides a useful tool for prediction and decision making. In this paper, six variations of such computational models are discussed and evaluated. Evaluation was based on real world empirical data for 8 different domestic situations. The evaluation took place by determining the most optimal values for the parameters of each of the models for the given data, and then considering the remaining error.
