Thermodynamic Solar System

Operating Principle

Equipment

  • Without ducts
  • Without ventilators
  • Without defrost cycles that use up energy
  • Super efficient compressor with low energy consumption
  • No need to install support equipment
  • Hot water guaranteed, available day and night, hail, rain, wind or shine

Solar Panel

  • Captures heat regardless of climate.
  • Primary circuit does not need to dissipate excess heat on hotter days.
  • Easy integration with architecture, versatile, no visual impact.

The Thermodynamics Solar System joins two incomplete technologies, the heat pump and the solar thermal collector.
Heat pumps are quite efficient pieces of equipment, but the heat they produce from their renewable component varies according to changes in the temperature of the environment.
Thermal solar collectors are most effective on hot and sunny days but they are totally inefficient when there is no sun.

Thermodynamic Solar Technology manages to surpass the limitations of both  heat pump and solar collector technologies.
The thermodynamic system’s refrigerant (R134a or R407c) is forced under pressure into the thermodynamic solar panel, where the refrigerant gains heat from the surrounding environment, causing it to expand into a gas. Following this stage, the gas travels through an exchanger, with the help of a small efficient compressor, heating the water. The refrigerant then cools, returning to liquid form, passes through an expansion value and the circuit is repeated.

As the fluid has a boiling temperature of approximately -30ºC, the system works even when there is no sun, providing hot water at 55ºC, day and night, rain, hail, wind or shine, unlike the traditional solar thermal collectors.
The energy consumption of the system is basically the same as a fridge compressor that makes the liquid circulate. There are no ventilators that help the evaporation process, or defrost cycles, which lead unnecessary energy consumption.

Consumption and Savings

Distribution of consumption to different systems

Solar PV Intelligent Integration

ENERIE Australia’s Thermodynamic Solar Systems can be fully integrated into existing or new solar PV systems allowing for even greater economy and cost savings. With some State Government feed in tariffs coming to an end in 2016, many existing Solar PV systems will no longer receive generous credits for exporting electricity to the grid. The ability to integrate existing Solar PV systems into ENERGIE Australia’s Domestic Hot Water systems means that the previously exported electricity, that is no longer receiving a feed in tariff, can instead be used to run the system, virtually eliminating the already low running costs.

Similarly, new Solar PV systems only receive nominal or no feed in tariff, meaning any extra power generated and exported to the grid is either given away for free, or has an insignificant credit value. Again, ENERGIE Australia’s Thermodynamic Solar Systems can be fully integrated into these new Solar PV systems, maximising the value of the power generated.
