Study of a Fault Analysis System for a Heat Supply Network Based on GIS
MetadataShow full item record
Conventional methods cannot satisfy the request of the layout and operation management in a heating system. The geographical information system (GIS) in a heat supply network can realize information conformity and information share roundly, which makes management of information improve to a new level in district heating. When fault of the heat supply network occurs, the traditional methods make fault reaction time long and the efficiency low, and enlarge the fault harm. The system of fault analysis in a heat supply network based on GIS mainly simulates and calculates according to various fault conditions. By selection of valve shut-off schemes in fault conditions and simulation of various fault conditions, the fault treatment scheme can be optimized. The results of simulation can be shown in the GIS graphics with the aid of advanced image display function of GIS. The application of this system brings great significance to heating system on the management enhancing, fault number-reducing, quick decision-making and influence area diminishing in case of fault.
