ECONOMIC OPERATION OF AN ELECTRICITY-DRIVEN HEAT-PUMP DHC PLANT WITH LARGE THERMAL STORAGES


Energy consumption data and operation of a district heating and cooling (DHC) plant with large thermal storage tanks were studied in this paper in order to dig energy saving potentials. Different operation modes were discussed including cost-saving one and energy-saving one. Saving potential of the existing operation strategy was discussed as well.
