A mathematical model of a ground heat exchanger cooperating with a heat pump was presented. The model is based on a one-dimensional heat conduction equation with an internal heat source. On the basis of the solutions to the model equations, both the temperature distribution of different types of ground at different times of year as well as the time courses of temperature at different depths are shown. Calculations based on the presented model can be useful for the simulation and design of this apparatus.
