Applied Energy, 2015, vol. 149, issue C, 125-132

Abstract: A novel dual tank solar-assisted heat pump (SAHP) system configuration for domestic hot water heating was developed. Due to the multiple modes of operation arising from the configuration, it was necessary to develop a custom control strategy to minimize electricity consumption. The controller evaluates which modes of operation are possible given the current conditions and selects the best mode from those available.
