The Archetype Sustainable House: Performance Simulation Of A Variable Capacity Two-Stage Air Source Heat Pump System

Amir A Safa, Alan S Fung, Wey H Leong

Abstract: A comprehensive monitoring system has been implemented at the Archetype Sustainable Twin Houses at Kortright Center in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada to investigate the thermal performance of a variety of sustainable housing technologies. Among these technologies include a variable capacity twostage air-source heat pump (ASHP) system for residential space heating and cooling in House A of the twin houses. Using monitored data in the summer and winter by means of a data acquisition system (DAQ), cooling and heating performance curves for the ASHP were developed and a simplified parametric energy model of the ASHP and the building was created in TRNSYS 16 software.
