An electrical chiller is a simple variant of a heat pump and is modelled as such: electricity as input and cooling and waste heat as output. For the energy balance to hold, a waste heat export must be modelled.
Note that the waste heat can also be reused as the input of another technology.
Set-up Implementation electrical chiller
When defining a heat pump in Sympheny, the following steps must be done:
Defining the energy carriers necessary (as displayed in the table under the ‘set-up summary’ section).
Defining the inputs (in this case, electricity) and the outputs (in this case waste heat) of the chiller within the imports & exports tab.
