Pompes à chaleur à haute température récupérant la chaleur sur des buées ou de la vapeur d'eau à moyenne température

Abstract : The mechanical vapour compression high temperature heat pump for industry using electricity is one of the most effective innovative technologies to recover the industrial waste heat at low and medium temperature (<90°C). However, given the current industrial heat needs, the heat pump target temperature levels remain too low and slow strongly its implantation. Overwhelmingly, the drying processes reject saturated moist air at middle temperature (50°C-90°C) and have heat needs at very high temperature (110°C-150°C). The large temperature difference between the source and the heat need and the level off temperature that is needed, today, makes the heat pump integration in such processes an interesting energy and technological challenge, whose economic stake is considerable. The present works tackle, with a generic methodology of thermodynamic optimisation cycles based on the entropy minimization in the heat exchangers, to identify the most efficiency heat pump architectures from an energy point of view. The theoretical analysis allowed to detect the transcritical heat pump architecture, in conditions of high temperature glides between the inlet and the outlet of the heat need. The development of a transcritical high temperature heat pump demonstrator using the R32 as working fluid allowed to demonstrate the technical feasibility of a heat pump that can reach the target temperature of 120°C from 60°C with an available heat source at 50°C, and to demonstrate its high energy efficiency (COP = 4).
