Multiple heat source networks, increased calculation accuracy and speed
Network with multiple sources
Comsof Heatversion 2020.3 offers the possibility to plan and design district heating network with multiple heat sources. Optimize the network to either maximize carbon reduction, minimize capital expenditure, minimal operational costs or find the optimal combination of these three aspects.
In the below visual you can see a network designed with Comsof Heat, containing three different heat sources throughout the city.
More accurate calculations
We increased deployment cost calculation accuracy.
We introduced a new cost model for the pipe system,
you can define substation unit costs
Pipe sizes will be adapted based on estimated heat losses
You can now visualize the flow direction in every pipe in the transport layer
Speedy cloud calculations
We have also created a cloud calculation engine which allows you to offload calculations from your local machine to our secure cloud servers. This speeds up your project’s calculation time.
You can run any action from the Comsof Heat plugin on our cloud platform directly from your QGISenvironment. When the calculation is finished, simply download and load it into your project.
