  1. 1. Construction and test of a new compact TRT equipment

    University essay from KTH/Tillämpad termodynamik och kylteknik

    Author : Linus Olausson; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A relevant contribution to sustainable development can be achieved by providing efficient solutions for heating buildings. The use of a heat pump taking heat from the bedrock with the help of a borehole heat exchanger is a common solution in Sweden to accomplish this. READ MORE

  2. 2. Practical evaluation of borehole heat exchanger models in TRNSYS

    University essay from KTH/Tillämpad termodynamik och kylteknik

    Author : Åsa Thorén; [2016]
    Keywords : TRNSYS; borehole heat exchanger; boreholes; Ground source heat pump; Renewable energy;

    Abstract : Vertical ground source heat pumps are established and still growing on the global market. The modelling of these systems is important for system design and optimization. This is an active field of research, and many models are often built into system simulation software such as TRNSYS. READ MORE

  3. 3. Technical and market potential of solar PV/thermal modules combined with ground source heat pumps

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik; KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Oscar Hagsjö Renberg; Oscar Hermansson; [2015]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : This bachelor thesis investigates the market and technical potential of combining PV-T technology with ground source heat pumps for multi-family housings in Sweden.The basic idea is to first convert ordinary solar panels to solar panels that are cooled which reduces their resistance.

    Abstract : Nowadays Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP) are widely used to provide heating and/or cooling as well as domestic hot water in commercial and residential buildings. The Swedish GSHPs market is the first one in the European Union with more than 378,000 units installed until 2010 according to the Swedish Heat Pump Association (SVEP). READ MORE

  5. 5. Distributed Thermal Response Test on a Grouted U-pipe Borehole Heat Exchanger

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Marine Marcucci; [2014]
    Keywords : Ground source heat exchanger; grout;

    Abstract : The expansion of the use of geothermal heat pumps makes the study of their performances a keystone in their development. Several parameters are crucial to design properly a geothermal heat pump. Comparing the theoretical characteristics of a system with the actual ones one the field is part of its understanding.
