Heat pumps - HP FAT
On this page, you can download our calculation programme HP FAT (Heat Pump First Assessment Tool). HP FAT is a freeware, based on EES and the related manual. HP FAT is intended to be a helping tool for the first examination of a future heat pump application.
The programme utilizes the fact that there is a theoretical maximum for COP for a set of particular temperatures. This theoretical value is reduced to a realistic expected value, after which you can carry out an estimation of the heating capacity and simple financial key figures.
Fundamentally, the model is based upon Lorez-COP, which is an extended edition of Carnot-COP, where the possibility for utilizing the temparute change in both the cold and warm side of the heat pump is taken into account. Expressed in popular terms, Lorenz-COP is the total COP for a lot of series-connected heat pumps which each has Carnot-COP.
