The project focuses on the control of double source (aerothermal and geothermal) heat pumps, and in particular on the development of smart control logics to be implemented in thermal systems that use such units to cover thermal loads in residential buildings.

Following a characterization of the machine proposed on the market by INEWA, a numerical model will be developed with the aim of developing the control algorithms of a typical thermal plant that uses this unit. The algorithms will use artificial intelligence techniques to select which source shall be uses, based on monitored weather conditions and calculated thermal loads. Once developed in a simulated environment, the control will be validated EURAC's laboratories.

Eurac Research is a private research center based in Bolzano (South Tyrol) with researchers from a wide variety of scientific fields who come from all over the globe. Together, through scientific knowledge and research, they share the goal of shaping the future.

What we do

Our research addresses the greatest challenges facing us in the future: people need health, energy, well-functioning political and social systems and an intact environment. These are complex questions, and we are seeking the answers in the interaction between many different disciplines. In so doing, our research work embraces three major themes: regions fit for living in, diversity as a life-enhancing feature, a healthy society.
