Valsuani - 15° Convegno Europeo CSG

  1. 1. ISAHP: INTEGRATED SOLAR ASSISTED HEAT PUMPS OPERATED WITH ISOBUTANE (R600A) L.A. Tagliafico, F. Scarpa, G. Tagliafico, F. Valsuani, C. Rossi Dott. Ing. Federico VALSUANI From conception to prototype Fiera Rho Milano, 28/03/2012 Le innovazioni Tecnologiche nel Freddo e e nel Condizionamento 1
  2. 2. SYSTEM DESCRIPTION - ISAHPThe direct expansionintegrated solar assistedheat pump (ISAHP) waterheater consists of a Rankinerefrigeration cycle whereunglazed flat plate solarcollectors act as anevaporator for the refrigerant(R600a).The condenser is coupledwith a water storage tank inorder to cover the energyuser demand. innovative device for building integrated applications Fiera Rho Milano, 28/03/2012 Le innovazioni Tecnologiche nel Freddo e e nel Condizionamento 2

  5. 5. FLUID – R600a A full design has been performed and R600a resulted the best operating fluid.The use of natural refrigerants, such as R600a – isobutane, is interesting for its lowenvironmental impact (ODP = 0, low GWP) when used in a high efficiency system(low energy consumption, low TEWI) .The range of pressure and Temperature of R600a fits the working condition of R134asystems. The use of R600a is consistent for small and medium device because of the explosive hazard for bigger devices. CE 1272/2008: Isobutane - Category 1 - H220 (High flammability) Lower Explosion limit (LEL) 1.5 % Approx 38 g/m3 Upper Explosion Limit (UEL) 8.5% Approx 203 g/m3 Minimum ignition temperature 460 °C Fiera Rho Milano, 28/03/2012 Le innovazioni Tecnologiche nel Freddo e e nel Condizionamento 5

  7. 7. ISAHP - PROTOTYPEThe prototype built at DIME – University ofGenoa is composed of:• Variable speed volumetric compressor (6 cm3)• Pulse modulated electronic expansion valve• Water condenser• Bare steel solar panel (evaporator) (1m2)The solar evaporator is made of a copper coil(din=8mm, dext=10mm, L=30m, A=0.75m2)welded on an steel plate in which the R600aflows.Patent n. 1371944 (22.03.2010) Fiera Rho Milano, 28/03/2012 7
  8. 8. ISAHP – PST comparisonThe PSIPC system has been installed coupled with a traditional solar thermalsystem (PST) in order to cover the hot water and heating load of a dressing room.This design solution allow to compare the instant power and the thermal energygeneration of the two devices.

  12. 12. CONCLUSION - ADVANTAGESMain advantages in comparison to traditionalsystem:• The PSIPC prototype has been realized using R134a components but charged with R600a as refrigerant fluid. Good adaptability has been found.• Higher solar panel efficiency (0.7-0.9 ); → the solar panel is kept at lower working temperature• Higher heat pump COP (6 ÷ 8.5); → higher evaporator working temperature• Lower solar panel cost → bare steel plate, no glass cover Fiera Rho Milano, 28/03/2012 12
