Defrosting for Air Source Heat Pumps: Research, Analysis and Methods presents a detailed analysis of the methods, processes
and problems relating to defrosting, a necessary requirement to maintain the performance of ASHP units. Readers will gain
a deeper understanding of control strategies and system design optimization methods that improve the performance and reliability
of units. The book discusses the most recent experimental and numerical studies of reverse cycle defrosting and the most widely
used defrosting method for ASHP. Techno-economic considerations are also presented, as is the outlook for the future.
This book is a valuable resource for research students and academics of thermal energy and mechanical engineering,
especially those focusing on defrosting for ASHP, heating, ventilation and energy efficiency, as well as engineers and professionals
engaged in the development and management of heat pump machinery.
