Heat Pump Module

I want to simulate different combinations of water heating systems, coupled with solar heating. For this, I need an auxiliary tank connected to a heat pump, for which I would insert the performance parameters from the pump's manufacturer. Is there a module for a heat pump already developed for SAM?

Hello,

For SAM's solar water heating model, it assumes that supplementary heat is provided by an auxiliary electric water heater. SAM cannot model an auxiliary heat pump, but you can use the "Q auxiliary" output to determine the heat pump's load.

Best regards,
Paul.
