an absorption heat pump, the reduction of the temperature level causes a significant loss in cooling or heat pumping potential.
As outlined at the beginning of this section, substantial energy savings is accomplished by the application of the integrated system with a CHP unit and absorption heat pump, resulting from the high overall efficiency of the CHP unit of 90% (36% electric + 54% thermal) and the heat pumping effect with a COP close to 2.
The high-temperature, high-pressure refrigerant vapor then goes through the usual condenser, expansion device, and evaporator to provide heat pumping effect.
