    Abstract

    A transient model of ammonia-water absorption heat pump can be used to simulate the performance of the system for a range of feedback controls, and for varying the initial and ambient conditions such as transient temperature response of the generator, condenser, absorber, evaporator, solution heat exchanger and the house being cooled. The model consists of eight non-linear coupled differential equations. The predicted variables reached steady-state values similar to those predicted by a different steady-state model. By using the proportional differential control loop, the response time of the system is improved.
