Title:
Large-Scale District Heating Network Optimization 
Abstract:
This study optimizes the structure and size of a district heating network. The optimization task is formulated as a mixed-integer problem on a graph of possible pipe locations. Both structure (where to build pipes) and size (pipe capacities) are decision variables in a mathematical description of the optimization problem. The validity of its results are then tested on a case study in Munich, using a published district heating extension plan as reference. The district heating model employs an ide...    »
