  • Alluvium is sedimentary stratum and composed of gravel, sand, silt, clay. Permeability of alluvium is the higher. If alluvium have lots of aquifer, will be of great use heat source and heat sink of heat pump. Alluvium aquifer contain the thermal energy of surrounding ground. Also geothermal heat pump using alluvium aquifer reduce expenses than general geothermal heat pump, because geothermal heat pump using alluvium aquifer make use of single well. In this study geothermal heat pump using alluvium aquifer was installed and tested for a building. The heat pump capacity is 30USRT. Temperature of ground water is in $12{\sim}17^{\circ}C$ annually and the quality of the water is as good as living water. The heat pump cooling COP is 4.4 ~ 4.7. The system cooling COP is 3.25 ~ 3.6. This performance is as good as BHE type ground source heat pump.

  • The performance characteristics of heating and cooling operation for a heat pump system using seawater heat source and exhaust energy are presented. The heat pump system is made of a waste heat recovery system and a vapor compression refrigeration system. The working fluid is R-22. The heat pump system COPs are measured during heating and cooling operation modes, and the resultant COPs were 9.7 and 7.9, respectively, which are three times higher than those of the heat pump itself. Therefore, the performance of the heat pump system using exhaust energy is excellent compared to that of a general heat pump. The experimental data can be effectively used for the design of the high efficient heat pump using a seawater heat source.

  • The efficiency and capacity of an air source heat pump system decrease as the ambient temperature drops. One strategy of avoiding the decrease of the efficiency and capacity in air source heat pump system is to switch to another thermal energy source. Water can be a good candidate for the heat source. This paper presents the results of the performance analysis of heat pump system with a single unit dual source(SUDS) evaporator The heat exchanger combines two separated evaporators into a single evaporator and the object of the SUDS evaporator is to recover energy from dual heat sources, i.e. air and water. Simulation program is developed for the dual source heat pump system with a SUDS evaporator and experimental data are obtained and compared with the simulation results. Differences in heating capacity and COP are 7% and 8% respectively. Simulation results are in good agreement with the test results. Therefore, the developed program is effectively used for the design and performance prediction of the dual source heat pump system with a SUDS evaporator.

  • In this study, the present regulation of heat metering for the ground source heat pump was investigated. The ground source heat pump has been adopting the heat metering system used in the district heating system for estimating the heating and cooling energy production amount. The accuracy of the present heat metering systems for a water to water ground source heat pump is low, because the system for district heating has a relatively high temperature range comparing with the ground source heat pump operating conditions. Even though the heat amount for the building side should be measured, the heat absorption and extraction amount from or to the ground was measured for the water to air ground source heat pump due to the difficulty of estimating the air side heating and cooling capacity in the present regulation. It is highly recommended to validate the heat metering system to have reliability for the ground source heat pump and develop the system to be applicable water to air ground source heat pump.

  • Among the various ground source heat pump systems, vertical-type heat pump systems have been distributed greatly. Most of the vertical-type ground source heat pump systems have been designed based on the Korean Ministry of Knowledge Economy Announcement in Korea. In this study, the design process of the vertical-type ground source heat pump system in the announcement was analyzed, and the effects of the design parameters on the ground loop heat exchanger were investigated. Borehole thermal conductivity was the highest dominant design parameter for ground loop heat exchangers. The borehole thermal conductivity was changed according to the pipe and grout thermal conductivity. For optimal design of the ground heat pump system, it is highly recommended that the design process in the announcement will be revised to adopt the various tubes and grout which have higher thermal conductivity. In addition, the certification standard for heat pump unit should be revised to develop the heat pump with a small flow rate.

  • In Korea, air source heat pump system is less efficient than conventional heat source facilities, because the air temperature in winter season is so low that COP of air source heat pump system drops below 3.0. Therefore, the study on the application of heat pump heating and cooling systems is crucial for the efficient popularization of heat pump. In this work, we present the dynamic analysis of energy consumption for the large hospital building by heat resistance-capacitance method. The system simulation of water storage air source heat pump is additionally performed by changing sizes and locations of the hospital building. The computed results show that energy cost of water storage air source heat pump is low, so it is more economical than absorption chiller & heater.

  • The dynamic characteristics of both raw-water source and air source heat pump utilized in water treatment facilities were investigated by using TRNSYS simulator. The modeling of the raw water source heat pump was verified by the measured data at the Cheongju water treatment facility, and the modeling at the air source heat pump was verified by the data from the Siheung water treatment facility. The average heating and cooling COPs from the raw-water source heat pump were higher than those of the air source heat pump by 19% and 18%, respectively. The power consumptions of the air source heat pump for the cooling and the heating were higher than those of the raw water source heat pump by 28% and 26%, respectively.

  • This study is to compare energy consumption of air-source, ground-source and dual-source heat pump systems during intermediate season using dynamic simulation. Ground-source heat pump has higher COP than that of air-source but requires additional power consumption of auxiliary equipment such as circulation pump. During intermediate season when the outdoor air temperature is favorable, total COP of air-source heat pump may be greater than that of ground-source when circulation pump power consumption is included. Dual-source heat pump which selects the more favorable heat source is compared with air-source only and ground-source only heat pumps for total power consumption. Results show that power consumption of dual-source heat pump is lower than that of ground-source only by 0.73%.

  • A multi-type heat pump controls the mass flow rate of the working fluid to cope with variable heat loads when it is under dynamic load condition. This paper describes the exergy analysis associated with the dynamic response of heat pump. First, a basic heat pump cycle is examined at steady state to show the general trends of exergy changes in each process of the cycle. Entropy generation issue in the exchangers is discussed to optimize the heat pump cycle. Second, the performance of the inverter-driven heat pump is compared to that of the conventional one when the heat load is variable. Third, the exergy destruction rate associated with the ON/OFF operations of the heat pump is calculated by simulating the thermodynamic states of the condenser and the evaporator. The inefficiency of the ON/OFF operation during the transient period is quantitatively revealed by the exergy analysis.

  • The hybrid heat pump system of the air to air and / or air to water was composed and its COP was analyzed with the ambient temperature on the opened and closed loop system respectively. The results be indicated by the equation(7) that the COP(Coefficient of Performance) of air-source(air to air and / or air-water) heat pump is effected with the ambient air temperature and AVACTHE.(Automatic Variable Area Capillary Type Heat Exchanger) 2. The COP of air-to-water heat pump without AVACTHE decreased in accordance with the ambient temperature decrease, however in case of the heat pump with AVACTHE the COP was maintained at 2.8∼3.0 level when the ambient temperature decrease from -$5^{\circ}C$ to $-11^{\circ}C$. 3. The COP of the air-to-water heat pump operated on the open loop was higher 40∼58% than that of the heat pump operated on the close loop. 4. The lower ambient temperature air effect on the COP of the air-to-air heat pump operated on the semi closed loop could be controlled using the AVACTHE, and at the high ambient air temperature the COP increased using the Bypass circuit.
