Thermoeconomic Analysis of a Solar Heat-Pump System
MetadataShow full item record
This paper introduces a solar energy heat-pump system and analyzes the thermoeconomics. The results show that the solar energy heat-pump system can be operated in different modes and used for room heating in winter and cooling in summer and/or heating a hot water supply. The results also show that the efficiency of the system's components and how the investment costs greatly affect the wide acceptability and use of the system. Solar energy is clean and renewable and having not to pay the solar energy costs, the solar energy heat-pump system is still attractive and will have a large market.
