Sustainable Heating and Cooling Systems

​​​​​ST.jpg 
​​This research group focuses on HYBRID and EFFICIENT HEATING and COOLING SYSTEMS for BUILDINGS, SUSTAINABLE DISTRICTS and their INTEGRATION in INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES. Usually these systems imply the use of electrically and thermally driven heat pumps.

Beside international cooperation projects, the research is performed directly with industry partners, supporting them in the implementation and launch of innovative energy technologies by offering systems’ design, simulation and monitoring. Furthermore bilateral cooperation projects with public partners are elaborated in the field of thermal energy supply and demand management on buildings and district level.

The research group is active within the European Technology Platform for Renewable Heating and Cooling where it is at present a member of the board. It is further involved with a leading role in several International Energy Agency and European p​rojects.   

MAIN TOPICS: 
  • design of hybrid heating and cooling systems through numerical simulations and laboratory testing
  • control strategies development for solar thermal system components and for the whole plants
  • monitoring of (complex) solar thermal systems​
RESEARCH PROJECTS ARE FOCUSED ON:
  • ​development of sustainable heating and cooling system configurations
  • technological development of solar cooling components, like sorption machines and control units
  • development of innovative test procedures for discontinuous thermally driven heat pumps.​
 
SCIENTIFIC CONSULTANCY BOTH FOR PRIVATE ENTERPRISES AND PUBLIC AUTHORITIES ARE PROVIDED IN TERMS OF:
  • ​laboratory testing of thermally driven and compression heat pumps
  • thermal systems’ design and op​timization through dynamic simulations
  • development of control strategies for the optimal use of free heat fluxes
METHODOLOGICAL APPROACH:​
  • ​numerical simulations of single components and whole solar systems performed mainly in TRNSYS, Labview and Polysun ambient
  • on site monitoring
  • laboratory tests
