Two-stage Rotary Compressor, Refrigerant Injection, Cold Climate Heat Pump
As an promising heating application of environmental conservation and energy conservation, air-source heat pump systems has been spreading. However, conventional heat pump systems have problems remaining, such as inadequate heating capacity and reduced performance under low environmental temperature condition. To solve these problems, we developed a two-stage rotary compressor for household R32 air-source heat pump system. We analyzed the thermodynamic characteristics of two-stage rotary compressor with refrigerant injection used in heat pump system with economizer. It is found that the two-stage rotary compressor can enhance heating capacity and performance of R32 heat pump under cold climate markedly.
