On April 6th 2017, the IEBWUMS project partners of the universities of Dresden, Stuttgart and Aachen met for the 8th time to discuss the results of the conducted roundturn. It was necessary to demonstrate the influence of the different versions of hardware-in-the-loop test beds on the determined sesonal coefficient of performance (SCOP) of heat pumps and CHP systems.

With the completion of the project in the second quarter of this year, a procedure will be presented which enables one to determine SCOPs in a more realistic manner. This is made possible by a holistic view of the heat pump system and the detection of dynamic effects such as weather and user behavior.
