The coupling of the heat and power sector is required as supply and demand in the German electricity mix drift further and further apart with a high percentage of renewable energy. Heat pumps in combination with thermal energy storage systems can be a useful way to couple the heat and power sectors. This paper presents a hardware-in-the-loop test bench for experimental investigation of optimized control strategies for heat pumps. 24-hour experiments are carried out to test whether the heat pump is able to serve optimized schedules generated by a MATLAB algorithm. The results show that the heat pump is capable of following the generated schedules, and the maximum deviation of the operational time between schedule and experiment is only 3%. Additionally, the system can serve the demand for space heating and DHW at any time.
