District heating, regeneration

The regeneration module calculates the thermal balance and parameters as related to regenerative heaters. These are the following groups of data:


  • The thermal balance of the heaters
  • The heat flux to the heat exchange surface
  • The steam flow from the extractions to the heaters
  • The heater terminal temperature difference

The program module for monitoring the district heating module performance determines the balance and characteristic parameters related to the production and external transfer of heat. Aside from the energy balance, the terminal temperature difference in the heat exchangers for district heating are determined, and are used as a measure of heat exchange efficiency. In this module, steam streams from the turbine extractions that feed the under-turbine heat exchangers are calculated. The obtained data is the basis for calculations of turbine efficiency.
