Utveckling av operativa strategier för ett värmepumpsystem med PV, elektrisk och termisk lagring (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

This study describes the development of operational strategies for an exhaust air heat pump system that supplies space heating and domestic hot water. The system combines photovoltaic power production with two different storage types. These are electrical storage using batteries and thermal storage in using a domestic hot water tank and in form of the thermal capacity of the building. The investigation of the control strategies is carried out for a detailed single family house model in Sweden in the simulation software TRNSYS. The overall aim of the control strategies is to improve the performance of the energy system in terms of self-consumption, self-sufficiency, final energy and seasonal performance factor. Three algorithms are developed and compared to a base case without additional control. The first algorithm only uses the thermal storage in the hot water tank and the building. The second uses only the battery to store the photovoltaic electricity. The third control algorithm combines both storage types, electrical and thermal.

The simulation results show that for the studied system the energetic improvement is higher with the use of electrical storage compared to using thermal storage. The biggest improvement however is reached with the third algorithm, using both storage types in combination. For the case of a photovoltaic-system with 9 kW and battery store with 10.8 kWh and a 180 l hot water store the self-consumption reaches up to 51% with a solar fraction of 41 %. The reduction in final energy consumption for this case is 3057 kWh (31 %) with the heat pump having a seasonal performance factor of 2.6. The highest self-consumption is reached with a photovoltaic-system of 3 kW and battery store with 3.6 kWh, which comes to 71 %.
