Large Scale Solar Process Heat Systems - Planning, Realization and System Operation
Within the FP7-InSun project three different solar process heat systems have been installed and integrated in two different industrial processes. A 1067 m2 advanced flat plate collector field and a 130 m2 parabolic trough ...
District Heating and Cooling Networks Based on Decentralized Heat Pumps: Energy Efficiency and Reversibility at Affordable Costs
District heating and cooling networks based on decentralized reversible heat pumps offer the possibility of balancing heating and cooling demands and exploiting low-temperature waste heat sources. This enhanced “energy ...
Monitoring of a flat plate solar thermal field supplying process heat
The article reports the performance data of a flat plate collector field installed in Austria and supplying process heat to a meat factory, up to a temperature of about 95 °C. The presented data span an entire year, thereby ...
A comprehensive evaluation of a monthly-based energy auditing tool through dynamic simulations, and monitoring in a renovation case study
An energy auditing tool (PHPP) was evaluated against a dynamic simulation tool (TRNSYS) and used for the assessment of energy conservation measures in a demo case study. The comprehensive comparison of useful heating and ...
Analysis and Adaptation of Q-Learning Algorithm to Expert Controls of a Solar Domestic Hot Water System
This paper discusses the development of a coupled Q-learning/fuzzy control algorithm to be applied to the control of solar domestic hot water systems. The controller brings the benefit of showing performance in line with ...
5th generation district heating and cooling systems: A review of existing cases in Europe
This article investigates 40 thermal networks in operation in Europe that are able to cover both the heating and cooling demands of buildings by means of distributed heat pumps installed at the customer substations. The ...
