Energy optimized production plant


Due to the rising global energy demand and the increasing urban development, environmental friendly heating systems, such as district heating, are becoming increasingly important. The construction of district heating infrastructure is difficult due to high maintenance costs and the unfavorable situation on the gas and electricity market. Therefore, it is important to use existing resources better and to improve present structures to reduce the energy providing costs.

The current operating status was ascertained with data from the control system and electric power metering in three area converter stations. The investigations relate to construction, operating modes and the control of the stations. Key figurers derived from the results of the investigations.
