Test Rig Characterization of the Lab-Scale Heat Pump Unit

Workpackage 9: Test Rig Characterization of the Lab-Scale Heat Pump Unit

WP 9 involves testing of a lab-scale heat pump unit by:

  1. Integrating all the components into one unit;
  2. Conducting an experimental investigation and test of the complete setup including the HP controller;
  3. Validating the design principles and performance of the lab scale unit;
  4. Evaluating the system at standardized operating conditions;
  5. Evaluating the control strategies for part load operation and defrosting and
  6. Analyzing the measurements for improving the unit and the components.
