Climatization of a Laboratory by TCA Technology in Spain
Dalarna University, School of Technology and Business Studies, Environmental Engineering.

Abstract [en]

The Thermo Chemical Accumulator is a new heat pump based on absorption technology with LiCl-water working pair that provodes heating or cooling as wanted, using for that thermal energy that has previously has been stored in the device. Solar thermal energy seems to be a very good option as energy source for supplying the machine. The device is still under development but the company owner of the patent (Climate Well) is starting its commersialisation. The first commercially available device based on TCA technology has been called DB 220, which is essentially production prototype. Due to the characteristics of the machine it can be specially useful in Mediterranean climates. That is why Clime Well is interested in introducing the technology in the Spanish market. The main aim of this thesis work has been to make a specific case study of the installation that will include the first DB 220 in Spain. For that purpose, first of all a learning process about the TCA technology as well as about air conditioning in general has been done. A state of the art of thermally driven cooling technologies in Spain is presented in this thesis work as well as a detailed description of the TCA technology and the best air conditioning possibilities for it. It has to be underlined that the behaviour of the TCA and thus the charging rates that can be reached as well as the discharging ones for heating and cooling are very dependent on the selected peripheral devices that are used with the machine. Solar thermal collectors seems to be a very good option for providing the thermal energy to the machine together with radiative floor or ceiling for the distribution system of air conditioning and geothermal circuits for heat rejection/absorption when providing cooling/heating, respectively.
