The possibility of using a heat pump as a part of on-farm drying plant is considered taking drying of corn grain as an example. The methodology for kinetic calculations of a drying plant with a batch fluidized bed for granular materials is developed. These calculations are based on the use of an analytical solution for the problem of mass conductivity  and taking into account the time-related changes in drying agent parameters over the layer height. To determine the concentration dependence of the mass-conductivity coefficient, a zonal method has been used.

Keywords: heat pump; dryer; kinetic calculation.
