This paper introduces a heat pump system with a latent heat storage utilization seawater installed in an aquarium. For heating purpose such as air conditioning in order to maintain the indoor conditions at constant temperature and constant relative humidity, and cooling water supply to the fish tank in the aquarium, heat from seawater is collected as the heat source for the heat pump system. With regard to the heat pump system using low-temperature unutilized heat source, development is introduced on a heat source load responsive heat pump system, with combines a load variation responsive heat pump utilizing seawater with a latent heat (ice plus water slurry) storage system using nighttime electric power serving for electric power load leveling. The experimental COP (Coefficient of performance) of the proposed heat exchanger from seawater and latent heat storage cooling assisted heat pump system will be shown in detail.
