Abstract –This work deals with the development and characterization of innovative domestic heating system driven by solar assisted heat pump in order to increase the system efficiency. A suitable on-line measurement system of overall observable quantities has been integrated in the plant, to give accurate and updated measurements of all the variables interesting the whole system. A more detailed analysis of quantities that main influence the system performance has been carried out, by developing a suitable mathematic model able to describe and control the behaviour of interested phenomena. The heating energy amount is a function of the local weather conditions. In the thermal plant here proposed there is a solar energy harvesting device; this kind of plant needs of a high sensitive control system because of the great sensitivity of a solar systems to climate variation.
