Testing and rating of direct exchange ground coupled heat pumps with electrically driven compressors for space heating and/or cooling - Part 1: Direct exchange-to-water heat pumps
|Publication Date:||1 February 2011|
|ICS Code (Heat pumps):||27.080|
This European Standard specifies the terms and definitions, test conditions, test procedures and requirements for the rating and performance of direct exchange-to-water ground coupled heat pumps with electrically driven compressors, used for space heating and/or cooling. Brine can be used instead of water.
This European Standard applies to factory-made units with horizontal in-ground collectors. In the case of units consisting of several parts, this standard applies only to those designed and supplied as a complete package.
Water-to-direct exchange and direct-exchange-to-d
Direct exchange-to-air ground coupled heat pumps and air-to-direct exchange heat pumps are covered by EN 15879-3.
This European Standard does not apply to units using transcritical cycles, e.g. with CO2 as refrigerant.
