Hot water production
This work presents an experimental study of the dynamic performance of a CO2 water-to-water heat pump in a domestic hot water production system. A facility was developed and used to characterize the time evolution of the COP of this heat pump, the heating and stratification processes of the hot-water storage tank, and the global COP of the system. Results showed that, when heating the water storage tank, strategies based on promoting stratification to reach Ri ∼40, such as the use of vertical tank filling velocities ∼ 10-4 m·s−1 with low water flow rates between the tank and the heat pump gas cooler, permits an increase of ∼12.4% in the system global COP and a reduction of ∼16% of the compressor energy consumption compared to other strategies. However, strategies based on considering higher water flow rates (i.e. Ri ∼1) increase the thermal energy available in the tank (∼6% when flow rate and increases a factor 3.6) but enhance the water mixing and extend the heating time which reduces ...
