Management and Control for Optimal Performance of the Heating Substation
With the development of the scale of central heating, a higher managing level is needed for the heating substation. How to economize the more energy is the first factor that managers need to consider while ensuring the comfort of the heating consumer. The development of automation technology and the reduction in automation product prices and equipment supply, the technology guarantees reasonable heating of the heating substation. At the same time it brings a new problem-for ensuring the balance between investment and income, how to process central regulation at the heating substation? According to the three elements consisting of heat resource, heat consumer and heat-supply network, the article puts forward the basic principle of selecting the mode of central regulation, discusses the advantages and disadvantages of all kinds of regulation modes, and the essentials that designer should regard. In addition, the article especially studies the arithmetic of the controller, and discusses the possibility of replacing the normal PI or PID tune with fuzzy control by a case of quantitative regulation.
