Abstract

The study of a collective heating system by a heat pump with internal combustion engine was carried out during this contract. A heat pump with internal combustion engine of automobile origin was constructed (thermal power: 190 kW) and the regulation of this apparatus by a microprocessor card was studied. The study and our achievements have shown that the combustion of gas in Renault engines did not pose any technical problems and that the engines of automobile origin showed a sufficient reliability and life time for such an application. The weak market for collective heat pumps in France does not, however, permit the industrialization of these pumps where components have already been developed.
