Abstract:

Various types of heat pump, including semiconductor heat pump, are promising for use in Central Asia, where year round air conditioning is required. One suitable source of low potential heat is water, heated in solar installations. The combination of solar installations with semiconductor heat pumps allows a significant improvement in the energy characteristics of the devices. The reports purpose is to use a single method to define the losses of temperature head in the commutation of thermobatteries.
