Aquarea + PV PANELS

Key points:
· Increases the amount of self-consumed electricity from the solar system up to 120%
· Control the heat pump’s energy consumption according to the output of electricity from the PV considering the electric energy consumption requirement of the house
· Innovative algorithm balancing the heat pump’s consumption and the in-house comfort, based on the outside temperature and the energy demand of the building
· Easy configuration of the Heat Pump manager system with the PV system

For F and G Generation
Panasonic has developed an innovative algorithm for its HPM (Heat Pump Manager) which drastically improves the Heat Pump’s use of selfgenerated electricity from connected Photovoltaic panels. The Heat Pump will take the electricity generation by the solar system into consideration for the heating system and the domestic hot water production, without reducing comfort in the house.

PV Panel + Inverter + Heat Pump Manager + Aquarea F/G Generation
= Smart Grid Ready
For H Generation
Aquarea H Generation can synchronize with PV panel with simple CZ-NS4P PCB. A part of converting Aquarea in Smart Grid Ready, there is a new advantage, this new PCB allows 0-10V control.
With this Aquarea demand is adapting all moment with the PV Panel production.

PV + HP control
How to create added value of the combination PV+HP?
  • Optimize the HP considering the PV production
  • When the PV is producing enough to cover the HP consumption, then Tank mode will be forced to heat up the DHW to 55 or 65 degrees
  • If buffer tank on the installation, temperature on the buffer tank will increase 1-to 5 degrees or up to 55°C.
