The HL 320 modular system allows experiments on the generation, storage and use of heat from renewable energies. HL 320.01 includes a heat pump that can be connected to different heat sources and consumers. Together with other HL 320 modules it is possible to systematically investigate the possible variants for incorporating a heat pump into a modern heating system.
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 source circuit with different heat sources. The pipes with quick quick-release couplings, circulation pumps and accessories necessary to create these connections are provided.
The heating controller is operated via an integrated WLAN router. The user interface can be displayed on any number of terminals via a web browser. Different user levels with different functions can be selected. A LAN/WLAN connection with the local network allows the evaluation of the recorded measured values on a PC. An additional manufacturer software of the heating controller is supplied for this purpose.
