The Influence of Central Regulation Methods upon Annual Heat Loss in Heating Network
School of Municipal & Environmental Engineering, Harbin Institute of Technology, Harbin, China
For directly buried hot water heating network, heat loss per unit length can be calculated by the thermal theory of heating network, then the calculating method of annual heat loss would be deduced. By comparing the heat loss of three different regulation schemes, it is detected that different regulation scheme has different supply and return water temperature, resulting in different heat loss. The heat loss of variable flow regulation of equivalent temperature difference is the largest, while the heat loss of constant flow regulation is the smallest, which has significant guiding to the operation of district heating system. Finally, based on the calculation of the annual heat loss of the heating network in Jiu Tai, Ji Lin Province, it is found that the distribution heat losses take up 2.4%~2.7% of the total supplying heat, which are equivalent to the heat consumptions of the heating area from 30.7×104 m2 to 34.4×104 m2. Therefore reducing the heat losses of large scale heating networks is imminent.
