Multiple heat source networks, increased calculation accuracy and speed
Network with multiple sourcesComsof Heat version 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 calculationsWe 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
