Abstract

This paper analyses a gas fuelled heat pump system that integrates an Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) power generator with an air-sourced heat pump (ASHP). The heat produced by the gas burner is used to drive an ORC power system to produce mechanical power that is then directly used to drive a vapour compression cycle heat pump. The heat rejected by the ORC power system and contained in the flue gases is recovered for heating. Software ASPEN plus is used to model and analyse the proposed heat pump system. Steady state evaluation and the control strategies in response to changes in ambient air temperature have been conducted to analyse the integrated system.
