Title: An introduction of new features for conventional and hybrid GSHP simulations in eQUEST 3.7

Abstract

We present three new enhancements, newly implemented into eQUEST 3.7 here. These enhancements include: (1) simulation of ground coupled water-to-water heat pump systems; (2) improved multi-year simulations for conventional and hybrid ground source heat pump (GSHP) systems; (3) model of hybrid GSHP (HGSHP) system configurations. Moreover, the capabilities of each new feature are outlined and some details of the implementation or simulation techniques of each feature area are briefly discussed. Finally, the new wizard features are introduced to show how to build the models through the wizard interfaces.
