Local thermal grids with waste heat utilization: low- or medium-temperature supply?
Analysis of an integrated heating and cooling system for a building complex with focus on long–term thermal storage
Modern building complexes have simultaneous heating and cooling demands. Therefore, integrated energy systems with heat pumps and long-term thermal storage are a promising solution. An integrated heating and cooling system for a building complex in Oslo, Norway was analyzed in this study. The main c...
Comparison of Rankine cycle and trilateral flash cycle for power production from low temperature heat sources
Dynamic modeling of local district heating grids with prosumers: A case study for Norway
District heating (DH) will play an important role in the future fossil-free energy systems by enabling increased utilization of waste heat and renewable heat sources to cover buildings' heat demand. A prerequisite for this is a reduction in the distribution temperature and shift towards decentralize...
Dynamic modelling of local DH grids with multiple heat sources and thermal storage
Dynamic modelling of local low-temperature heating grids: A case study for Norway
Today's district heating (DH) networks in Norway are 2nd and 3rd generation systems, with supply temperatures ranging from 80 to 120 °C. In new developments, it is desirable to shift to 4th generation, low-temperature district heating (LTHD) in order to reduce the heat losses and enable better ...
