Optimization of the Heating System Operation
MetadataShow full item record
A new regulation method of the heating system is presented, which is based on the variation of outdoor temperature, to improve the economical efficiency and the timing regulation of the heating system. A function is put forward between the energy loss of the heating system, the temperature difference of supply-return water and the outdoor temperature by making use of the second law of thermodynamics and analyzing the energy loss in the operating process. By means of mathematical deduction, a function is also given between the temperature difference of the supply-return water and the outdoor temperature. With the function, the economical temperature difference of the supply- return water and the correlated parameters can be determined on the basis of the variation of outdoor temperature, and in this way, the heating system can be optimized.
