B5-02 Measurement of SAHP System

The research & development of new energy sources and energy saving are two key ways to solve the potential global energy shortage.The SAHP system has a wide and wonderful future for its excellent performance in energy conservation and environment protection.The R & D of this kind of technology will offer some useful reference to generalize and utilize it all over the country.
The author describes the design and installation of an experimental device of the SAHP.In order to observe and measure the overall thermal performance of the system and the performance of its components,the space heating tests in winter have been done using this experimental device.Some important reference data and conclusions for design,installation,operation and management of the SAHP are presented based on the experiment.
