Hydraulic integration and control of heat pump and combi-storage: Same components, big differences.

Different options for hydraulic integration and control of a heat pump connected to a solar combi-storage are investigated by means of annual system simulations. The results show that unfavorable hydraulic integration can lead to additional electric energy demand of the system of up to 45% (>1000 kWh electric energy per year) compared to a - well designed - reference solution with the same components. Based on the system performance analysis, recommendations are given for the hydraulic integration of heat pumps into systems with combi-storages.
