The present paper, as the first part of two, suggests a method to approach the challenge of capacity control in Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP). The paper describes the development of a model of the system which includes several sub-models such as the heat pump unit, building, ground source, thermal storage tank, auxiliary heater, and climate. The developed computer model can be used for comparative analysis of different control methods and strategies aiming at the improvement of the system seasonal performance. With this model, on/off controlled and variable capacity GSHPs, with a single speed or variable speed pumps in the systems, can be evaluated in a wide range of operating conditions and more energy efficient methods of the system control can be found. The computer model is developed in the two environments EES and TRNSYS utilizing so-called co-solving technique.
