H-DisNet Case Studies
Four case studies were developed to assess the potential of the H-DisNet solution through modelling and simulation. The case studies focused on an economical and environmental assessment to determine the potential for the application and to guide the technology development. Factsheets for the four case studies were created and presented during the H-DisNet Innovation Workshop in Berlin, Germany on 16 November 2018. These are available for download on the right column.
The third workshop took place in November 2018 in Berlin. The H-DisNet team gave an overview about the H-DisNet technology and presented the case study "Using of thermo-chemicals for moisture control in the automotive industries". Policy makers, thermal networks operators as well as technical experts participated actively to the workshop with presentations analysing the H-Disnet technology under different perspectives. The presentation are available for download on the right column.
Development of air distribution system
ZHAW is developing and testing a new air distribution system for the green house . The air is fed from the absorber directly below the crop. The air in contact to the crop is conditioned instead the air of the entire green house. Beside a huge saving in the energy, this system allows to create different clima zones in same green house room.
Thermal management demonstrator
The University of Newcastle developed and is testing a container-based thermal management demonstrator. At the heart of the portable container lies a thermally driven desiccant system capable of providing heating, cooling and humidity control. PCs at the far end of the container provide interface with management and control system. Calcium Chloride has been used as the working fluid for the first tests.
Workshop: H-DisNet Technology
The first of the three planned workshops took place in May 2017 during the Eutoheat & Power Congress in Glasgow.
The technology has been presented to the publicum. Three sections have been dedicated to the discussion about components, integration, planning and econmonics of thermo-chemical networks in comparison to standard networks.
