Proceedings of REHVA Annual Conference "Advanced HVAC and Natural Gas Technologies", 117-124
The work presents the development of a Hardware-in-the-Loop test method which enables the solving of integrated energy design problems at a system and concept level for the heat and cold supply of NZEBs based on electrically and thermally driven heat pumps and chillers. The main result is the realization of a test rig consisting of hardware (e.g. thermally driven chiller, or heat pump etc.), of software (e.g. LabView, TRNSYS) and the interface for the interaction of hardware and software.
