Overview of the System
The Mitsubishi Electric Air to Water (ATW) heat pump system consists of the following components; outdoor heat pump unit and indoor cylinder unit or hydrobox
incorporating main controller.
Schematic of package cylinder system
How the Heat Pump Works
Space heating and DHW
Heat pumps take electric energy and low grade heat energy from the outdoor air
to heat refrigerant which in turn heats water for domestic use and space heating.
The efficiency of a heat pump is known as the Coefficient of Performance or COP
this is the ratio of heat delivered to power consumed.
The operation of a heat pump is similar to a refrigerator in reverse. This process
is known as the vapour-compression cycle and the following is a more detailed
explanation.
1. Compressor
The first phase begins with the refrigerant being cold and low pressure.
1. The refrigerant within the circuit is compressed as it passes through the compressor. It becomes a hot highly pressurised gas. The temperature also rises
typically to 60°C.

1 kW
3. Expansion valve
4. Evaporator
(Outdoor unit air heat exchanger)
Low temperature renewable heat
energy taken from the environment
Electrical power input
2. Condenser
(Plate heat exchanger)
Useful energy output
3 kW
2. The hot refrigerant gas is then condensed as it passes across one side of a
plate heat exchanger. Heat from the refrigerant gas is transferred to the cooler
side (water side) of the heat exchanger. As the temperature of the refrigerant
decreases its state changes from a gas to a liquid.
3. Now as a cold liquid it still has a high pressure. To reduce the pressure the liquid passes through an expansion valve. The pressure drops but the refrigerant
remains a cold liquid.
4. The final stage of the cycle is when the refrigerant passes into the evaporator
and evaporates. It is at this point when some of the free heat energy in the outside air is absorbed by the refrigerant.
It is only the refrigerant that passes through this cycle; the water is heated as it
travels through the plate heat exchanger. The heat energy from the refrigerant
passes through the plate heat exchanger to the cooler water which increases in
temperature. This heated water enters the primary circuit and is circulated and
used to serve the space heating system and indirectly heat the contents of the
DHW cylinder (if present).
2 Introduction
Economical Best Practice
Air source heat pumps can provide both hot water (providing a suitable cylinder is
used) and space heating all year. The system is different to a conventional fossil
fuel heating and hot water system. The efficiency of a heat pump is shown by its
coefficient of performance as explained in the introduction. The following points
should be noted to achieve the most efficient and economical operation of your
heating system.
Important points about heat pump systems
• Domestic hot water and legionella functions are only available on cylinder units
or hydroboxes plumbed to an appropriate storage cylinder.
• In normal operation simultaneous DHW and space heating is unadvisable.
However during periods of extremely low ambient temperature, the immersion
heater (if present) can be used for DHW whilst the heat pump continues to provide space heating. Please be aware that the immersion heater, used alone, is
not an efficient method to heat the whole DHW tank. Therefore it should only
be used as a back up in normal operation.
• The hot water produced by the heat pump is typically at a lower temperature
than a fossil fuel boiler.
Implications
• If the heat pump is being used for DHW the time at which tank heat up occurs should be scheduled using the SCHEDULE function (see page 10).
Ideally this should be during the night time when little space heating is required and economy electricity tariffs can be taken advantage of.
• In most situations space heating is best performed using the room temperature mode. This enables the heat pump to analyse current room temperature and react to changes in a controlled manner utilising the specialised
Mitsubishi Electric controls.
• Using the SCHEDULE and HOLIDAY functions prevent unnecessary Space
or DHW heating when the property is known to be unoccupied for instance
during the working day.
• Due to lower flow temperatures, heat pump heating systems should be used
with large surface area radiators or under-floor heating. This will provide a
steady heat to the room whilst improving efficiency and so lowering running
costs of the system as the heat pump does not have to produce water at
very high flow temperatures.
Overview of Controls
Built into the cylinder unit and hydrobox is the Flow Temperature Controller3
(FTC3). This device controls the function of both the outdoor heat pump unit and
the indoor cylinder or hydrobox. The advanced technology means that by using an FTC3 controlled heat pump you can not only make savings compared to
traditional fossil fuel type heating systems but also compared to many other heat
pumps on the market.
As explained in the earlier section, ‘How the Heat Pump Works,’ heat pumps are
most efficient when providing low flow temperature water. The FTC3 advanced
technology enables the room temperature to be kept at the desired level whilst
utilising the lowest possible flow temperature from the heat pump.
In room temp (Auto adaptation) mode the controller uses temperature sensors
around the heating system to monitor space and flow temperatures. This data
is regularly updated and compared to previous data by the controller to predict
changes in room temperature and adjust the temperature of water flowing to the
space heating circuit accordingly. By monitoring not only the outdoor ambient, but
the room and heating circuit water temperatures, the heating is more consistent
and sudden spikes in required heat output are reduced. This results in a lower
overall flow temperature being required.

Holiday Mode
Holiday mode can be used to keep the system running at lower flow temperatures
and thus reduced power usage whilst the property is unoccupied. Holiday mode
can run either flow temp, room temp, heating, compensation curve heating and
DHW all at reduced flow temperatures to save energy if the occupier is absent.
Holiday mode can be activated in 2 ways. Both methods will result in the holiday
mode activation screen being shown.
Option 1.
From the main menu screen press button E should be pressed. Be careful not to
hold down button E for too long as this will turn off the controller and system.
Option 2.
From the main menu screen press button F4 the current settings screen will be
displayed. Press button F4 again to access the holiday mode activation screen.
Once the holiday mode activation screen is displayed you can activate/deactivate
and select the duration that you would like holiday mode to run for.
• Press button F1 to activate or deactivate holiday mode
• Use buttons F2, F3 and F4 to input the date which you would like holiday
mode to activate or deactivate holiday mode for space heating.
<Editing holiday mode>
Should you require the Holiday mode settings e.g. the flow temp, room temp to
be altered you should contact your installer.
Heating Mode
The heating menu deal with space heating using normally either a radiator or
under-floor heating system depending on the installation.
There are 3 heating modes
• Room temp (Auto adaptation) (
• Flow temp ( )
• Compensation curve (
)
)
<Room temp (Auto adaptation) mode>
This mode is explained in detail in ‘Overview of Controls’ Section.
<Flow temp mode>
The temperature of the water flowing to the heating circuit is set by the installer to
best suit the space heating system design, and user’s desired requirements.
<Explanation of compensation curve mode>
During late spring and summer usually the demand for space heating is reduced.
To prevent the heat pump from producing excessive flow temperatures for the
primary circuit the compensation curve mode can be used to maximise efficiency
and reduce running costs.
The compensation curve is used to restrict the flow temperature of the primary
space heating circuit dependent on the outdoor temperature. The FTC3 uses
information from both an outdoor temperature sensor and a temperature sensor
on the primary circuit supply to ensure the heat pump is not producing excessive
flow temperatures if the weather conditions do not require it.
Your installer will set the parameters of the graph depending on local conditions
and type of space heating used in your home. It should not be necessary for you
to alter these settings. If however you find that over a reasonable operating period the space heating is not heating or is overheating your home, please contact
your installer so they can check your system for any problems and update these
settings if necessary.

flow from the primary heating circuit is diverted to heat the water in the storage
tank.
• When the temperature of the stored water reaches the ‘DHW max. temp’ set
by the installer or if the ‘Max operation time’ set by the installer is exceeded
DHW mode ceases to operate.
• Whilst DHW mode is in operation hot water is not directed to the space heating
circuit.
• Directly after DHW mode operation ‘DHW mode restriction’ will operate. The
duration of this feature is set by the installer and during its operation DHW
mode can not be reactivated allowing time for primary hot water flow to be directed to the space heating circuit if necessary.
• After the ‘DHW mode restriction’ operation the DHW mode can operate again
and tank heating will continue if needed.
<Eco mode>
DHW mode can run in either ‘Normal’ or ‘Eco’ mode. Normal mode will heat the
DHW tank quickly using the full power of the heat pump. Eco mode takes a little
longer to heat the tank but the energy used is reduced as the heat pump operation is restricted using signals from the FTC3 based on measured tank temperature.
Note:
The actual energy saved in Eco mode will vary according to outdoor temperature.

<Forced DHW>
The forced DHW function is used to force the system to operate in DHW mode. In
normal operation the water in the DHW tank will be heated either to the set temperature or for the maximum DHW mode time, whichever occurs first. However
should there be a high demand for hot water the ‘Forced DHW’ function can be
used to prevent the system switching to space heating and continue to provide
DHW tank heating
Forced DHW mode is activated by pressing button F1 when option screen is displayed.
Legionella prevention mode (LP mode)
During legionella prevention mode the temperature of the stored water is increased
above 60°C to inhibit legionella bacterium growth. It is strongly recommended that
this is done at regular intervals. Please check local regulations for the recommended
frequency of heat up cycles.
Note: If failures occur on the cylinder unit the LP mode may not function normally.

<Explanation of Legionella Prevention mode operation>
• At the time entered by the installer ‘Start time’ useful heat from the system is
diverted to heat the water in the storage tank.
• When the temperature of the stored water exceeds the ‘Hot Water temp.’ set
by the installer (above 65°C) water is no longer diverted to the tank.
• Whilst legionella prevention mode is in operation hot water is not directed to
the space heating circuit.
• Directly after LP mode operation ‘Duration of max. temp’ will operate. The duration of this feature is set by the installer and during its operation stored water
temperature will be monitored.
• If stored water temperature should drop to LP restart temp, LP mode will restart and water flow from the plate heat exchanger will be directed to the tank
to boost the temperature. Once the set time for duration of max. temp has
passed LP mode will finish and not recur for the set interval (set by installer).
• It is the responsibility of the installer to ensure the settings for legionella prevention are compliant with local and national guidelines.
Important
Please note that LP mode uses electric heaters (if present) to supplement the energy input of the heat pump. Heating water for long periods of time is not efficient
and will increase running costs. The installer should give careful consideration
to the necessity of legionella prevention treatment whilst not wasting energy by
heating the stored water for excessive time periods. End-users should seek advice from their installers if they wish to change the LP mode settings.
