This paper describes heat pump research at University College Dublin in 1976 relating to an air-to-air heat pump. The plant under test and its instrumentation are described and some measured performance data are presented. A heat pump simulation program is described. A theoretical comparison of refrigerants 12, 22 and 502 is presented with graphs of performance parameters as a function of operating conditions.
