Abstract

Under the Energy Conservation programme of the European Communities, M.A.N. built, tested and carried out measurements on a diesel engine driven heat pump. Installation of the heat pump, together with measurement, control and monitoring equipment in a track container met the requirement for compact design. The evaporator is installed on the container roof; it consists of 2 half units, one of which can be defrosted if necessary. Basically, the heat pump serves to produce hot sanitary water, and additionally space heating in winter. At actual duty it gives a heat output of 215 kW. Changing the r.p.m. over a range from 1200-2500 min-1 adjusts the output. To eliminate vibration problems, the mounting was designed on the basis of a mathematical model of a multibody system. The measured values of airborne and structure borne noise lie well below the DIN values. Since 1982 control and operation of the installation has been fully automatic. During the heating period 1982 - 1983 the average annual primary energy ratio was 1.35; and the heat pump delivered 401 MWh thermal. In the final report design, construction work, timetable for completion of the project, project costs, economic viability and market prospects are also described.
