The HL 320 modular system allows experiments on the generation, storage and use of heat from renewable energies. HL 320.01 is one module in this system and includes a heat pump that can be connected to different heat sources and consumers.
The heat pump comprises a compressor, a condenser, an expansion valve and an evaporator. These components are connected to each other via a refrigeration circuit. The refrigerant circulates in the refrigeration circuit powered by the compressor. A source's thermal energy is absorbed at the evaporator. Additional energy is added to the evaporated refrigerant in the compressor. This energy can be output to a consumer as heat.
On the HL 320.01 trainer, the condenser can be incorporated into a heating circuit consisting of various consumers. The evaporator can be connected to a brine circuit with different heat sources. The pipes with quick quick-release couplings, circulation pumps and accessories necessary to create these connections are provided.
In practice and depending on the application, different system configurations are often required for optimal efficiency of a heating system. Using HL 320.01 and other HL 320 modules it is possible to systematically investigate the possible variants for incorporating a heat pump into a modern heating system.
Carefully structured instructional materials have been created for the recommended module combinations with the HL 320.01 module. As part of the documentation for the overall HL 320 system, these materials set out the basic principles and provide a step-by-step guide through the experiments.
