Experimental Data Help
I am working on to design a model based controller for a heat pump which is used to provide domestic hot water. I created a mathematical model for the condenser heat transfer. My aim is to control the refrigerant flow and obtain desired hot water temperature in my design. However, I need some experimental data to run my simulation which is created in Simulink. Unfortunately, I don't have any opportunity to conduct an experiment in a laboratory.
Is there any source to provide the refrigerant (R134a) mass flow rate from evaporator and temperature of refrigerant at the outlet of condenser during start-up process of the heat pump until obtain 60 oC water outlet ?
Thank You for your help and support in advance...

Re: Experimental Data Help
In an air/water heat pump, the condenser transfers it's heat to the water circuit, so the refrigerant mass flow and heat transfer will vary with the heating circuit temperature. It's not a constant process.I'm back on the Pale
