Taking the geothermal heat pump system in the campus of Hunan University of Technology for example, three technical solutions of the heat source of the system were analyzed in terms of the condensing heat load, the annual unbalanced heat load and the energy efficiency ratio(EER) of the system. In addition, comparison was conducted among the solutions. The results indicate that the solution 3, which has a cold and hot water integrative unit and hot water unit connected in series, meanwhile has a cooling tower for auxiliary cooling, shows better performance among all the solutions. The analysis on the solution of heat source of geothermal heat pump system, which usually contains the analysis on the condensing heat load, annual unbalanced heat load and EER, is of great significance for the design and development of the geothermal heat pump system with lower coat and higher EER.
