Modeling a Central Air-Source Heat Pump on an Energy Efficient Laboratory in Seattle Washington

September 27 | 10:30 am-12:30 pm

The presentation outlines the difficulties and limitations of modeling an ASHP and how we leveraged additional components of EnergyPlus to model the behavior of the ASHP system. The presentation will also discuss connectivity of the ASHP with the building's HVAC systems and the results of a whole-building energy analysis. Future recommendation will be provided for to incorporate the ASHP system as a component in EnergyPlus.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to model central air-source heat pumps 
  • Address engineering and architectural needs
