Systematic Classification of Combined Solar Thermal and Heat Pump Systems

In this paper an approach to describe and systematically classify combined solar thermal and heat pump systems is presented. The approach consists of three elements: A visualization scheme to systematically represent concepts of combined solar thermal and heat pump systems, a notation scheme providing the same information in letter combinations, and a simplified notation restricted to the most important parameters. The classification schemes are illustrated with examples.
