The requirements for the products that are to be developed differ largely and are dependent on the respective field of application. With heat pumps for building heating, for example, the greatest emphasis is on efficiency. Whereas for the development of household appliances the installation space due to existing norms is important.
At the beginning of the development, the current state of market products is determined and represented. Afterwards, the potential for proposed optimization measures is assessed with the help of simulations. Both the product and the particular process are considered. Then, the necessary components are dimensioned and a functional prototype is constructed which can be experimentally investigated in the laboratory of the CC TEVT.
