Abstract

In the present work, the experimental results of the substitution of R134a with R1234yf, R1234ze (E), R450A and R513A in a small water-to-water heat pump are discussed. An experimental setup that allows analysing the performance of different refrigerants in a broad range of operating conditions is used to carry out the comparison. The obtained results show that the use of any alter- native refrigerant leads to the reduction of the heating capacity and of the COP. The former lies within 77% - 98% and the latter lies within 94%-100% compared with R134a values. Furthermore, the increase of the rotational frequency of the compressor shaft allows bringing the heat pump heating capacity back to the R134a values but causes a further reduction of the COP that lies within 82% -98% compared with the baseline value.
