Abstract [en]

Air source heat pump (ASHP) has been widely applied to many parts of the world due to its simple structure and low initial cost. To save energy consumed for spacing heating and enhance the indoor thermal environment, improving the performances of ASHP has become one of the research focus in the relevant field. Currently, the most conventional heating terminal of ASHP system for spacing heating is finned tube heat exchanger coupled with air fan, which may cause strong draught sensation and dry eye problem and make users feel uncomfortable during convective heating. On the other hand, radiant heating is attracting more and more attention due to its comfortable indoor thermal environment. In this paper, a novel radiant-convective heating terminal was presented and coupled into an ASHP system. Both the operating characteristics and heating performances of the novel system were experimentally investigated. The experimental results showed that the novel system took about 28 min to enter a steady operating stage, during which the radiant panel surface temperature and outlet air temperature for the novel heating terminal, and COP of the novel system were 40.9 degrees C, 32.1 degrees C, and 3.11, respectively, under a standard heating condition. In addition, all parameters mentioned above saw a linear increase when the outdoor air temperature increased from -4.0 to 10.0 degrees C, and their respective rising rates were 0.41 degrees C, 0.28 degrees C and 0.04 per increased outdoor air temperature. Furthermore, the experimental results also demonstrated that adjusting the indoor air flow rate could effectively allocate the amount of heat generated by different heat transfer modes, which may have significant effects on the indoor thermal environment.
