Operating in part-load conditions significantly affects the energy efficiency of the air-to-water heat pumps. The currently used method of testing the devices does not provide the necessary data for estimating the degradation of the device’s efficiency in part-load operating mode. The value of the degradation coefficient Cc = 0.9 adopted in accordance with the EN 14825 standard is generally used. However, this value often does not reflect the actual degree of the COP reduction. Hence the new quasi-dynamic model and the calculation approach to the degradation coefficient were proposed. The model reflects the real and overall reduction between the full and part-load COP, not only the energy consumption in the stand-by mode. The estimation was made using the field measurement data of the air-to-water heat pump supplying heat to the low temperature installation. It has been proved that the determination of the main parameter is possible using a relatively small amount of data without losing an accuracy.
