D.3.4 Design review of the hybrid heat pump

Executive Summary

This document is the deliverable “D3.4 – Design review of the hybrid heat pump” in the European project “HYCOOL – Industrial Cooling through Hybrid system based on Solar Heat” (hereinafter also referred to as “HYCOOL”, project reference: 792073). HyCool Project Mission is increasing the current use of Solar Heat in Industry Processes, and to do so the project proposes the coupling of a new Fresnel CSP Solar thermal collectors (FCSP) system with specially build Hybrid Heat Pumps (HHP) (a “two in one” combination of adsorption and compressor-based heat pumps) for a wider output temperature range (Solar Heating & Cooling –SHC-), and a wide range of design and operational configurations to increase the potential implementation of the proposed Solar Heat in industrial environments. The solutions encompassed in the project will be implemented and tested in operational processes in two different pilot cases in the food and chemical industry. The food case pilot is hosted by Bo de Deb. which represents a small food industry in a high solar irradiation area with cooling needs in the production processes. Here the industrial cold installation is necessary for the good preservation of the product. The chemical case pilot targets industries with several processes in high solar irradiation areas with steam and cooling needs. This pilot is hosted by Givaudan where the cold installation makes use of a brine chiller to keep the water entering the liquid ring of the vacuum pumps at 7.C.

The purpose of this deliverable is to describe the key findings of the review process, which focuses on the design of the Hybrid Heat Pump. This report contains the findings with regard to control strategy, the interconnection of the heat pumps, selection of the suitable adsorbent and refrigerant, as well as an optimal size of the HHP.

D.3.3 Experimental characterization of the hybrid heat pump module

Executive Summary

This document is the Deliverable “D3.3 – Experimental characterization of the hybrid heat pump module ” of the European project “HYCOOL – Industrial Cooling through Hybrid system based on Solar Heat.” (hereinafter also referred to as “HYCOOL”, project reference: 792073).

This deliverable reports about the experimental performance evaluation of the hybrid cascading chiller under lab-controlled working conditions. The chiller was manufactured by Fahrenheit by connecting in cascade a silica-gel water adsorption cooling machine with a vapour compression chiller using R1270 (propylene) as refrigerant.

D.1.1 Interim first year report on project management

Executive Summary

The present deliverable D1.1 Interim first-year report on project management, hereafter named interim report (IR), contains the necessary information for the Hycool to evaluate the state of implementation of the project, mainly the work plan, the timely review of the scheduled milestones and deliverables will allow an efficient project implementation as well as concrete options for adjustments of management procedures, compliance with the provisions of the EC, finances, and monitors each partner’s costs, the financial situation of the project and all administrative matters. The technical part contains a concise statement of the tasks undertaken and a forecast for the next reporting period. Any problems encountered during the period and possible deviations from project plans. This deliverable set by the Consortium, is the first IR planed in the WP1 at M12, jointly with the other two IR planned at M18 and M36, at the end of the project. These deliverables are differentiated from the periodic reporting (PR) set by INEA and planned at M18 and M36. Basically, the PR includes the detailed description of the technical work carried out by beneficiaries, the work performed by the work package, the impact, and finally the deviations and the full financial information. This report covers the first period from M1 (May 2018) to M12 (April 2019).
