SPF Methodology

Expected results from the according WP4:

  • Guideline for measuring seasonal performance of heat pump systems in the most common configurations which are used in Europe including the documentation of the necessary sensors and a definition of all storage parameters. Additional parameters to clarify the boundary conditions under which the system is running.
  • A defined methodology for calculation of the seasonal performance factor (SPF) and a definition which devices of the system have to be included in this calculation.
  • Evaluation method for comparison of the heat pump system with conventional heating systems.
  • Method for benchmarking the seasonal performance under consideration of the boundary conditions under which the system is running.
