Electric heat pumps in the energy transition framework

Por: EMMA . en: ,


The MOOC aims to give an overview of the heat pump technologies application in the context of the energy transition. In particular, using a case based approach, the course will start with examples of the heating and cooling needs of the buildings then moving to the working principle and technologies of the electrically driven heat pumps. After examples of energy performance indicators calculations and dynamic simulation of the heat pump coupled to a building, the integration of the heat pumps into more complex systems (smart grids) is discussed, introducing the tools allowing heat storage and strategies for control (demand side management).
