The paper presents results from numerical modelling in ABAQUS of heat convection processes in the ducts of two-stage “water to air” heat exchanger, used as a heat consumer in reversible heat pump installation. A comparison between the values of heat convection coefficient has been done, as they have been determined on the basis of simulation results, and criterion equations. The heat convection processes have been modelled on the base of boundary conditions, determined by measuring of main parameters. The computing mesh has been verified on the basis of certain temperature values, by successively increasing the number of computing cells. The heat convection processes in the ducts of the heat exchanger have been simulated in “heating” and “cooling” modes of the installation. The study has been performed in laboratory conditions.
