Optimal Regulation of Heating Systems with Metering Based on Dynamic Simulation
MetadataShow full item record
The mathematical models of heat networks and heat users are established using the node method. The physical model of a typical room instead of a heat user is used; meanwhile the equation of radiator controlled by thermostat is put forward to compute the radiator's parameters. The primary purpose of these works is the strategy of optimal regulation of heating system with metering. In a ramiform heating system with three heat users, an optimal scheme with certain combination of different object functions is applied, and the optimal supply water temperatures are worked out by the estimate method of linear summation with weights based on dynamic simulation. The simulative results reflect the relationship between energy loss of heating systems and users' comfort.
