2022-12-21: Separation of hot drinking water and space heating infrastructures
  • The demands are now covered separately. Domestic hot water production is prioritized in each time step. The advantage is that different flow temperatures can be taken into account. This results in different efficiencies for the heat pump and more efficient operation.
  • Saved scenarios can still be used: The display from the dashboard will still work. To use "old" scenarios as a template, the space heating demand is added to the hot drinking water demand and the hot water tank is converted into a hot drinking water tank. This allows the hot drinking water infrastructure to be considered as a single, joined heat infrastructure to achieve reproducibility of results. Ideally, adjust the scenario by unchecking "Add space heating demand to hot drinking water demand", adjusting the "Flow temperature in heating circuit" in the expert settings and, if you use heat storage tanks, selecting the space heating storage tank.
  • New components: Hot drinking water storage and space heating storage tanks.
  • New input fields: Flow temperature in heating circuit, add space heating demand to hot drinking water demand.
  • Changed behavior: The solar thermal system only produces hot drinking water - it no longer supports the space heating system.
  • Deleted components: (Joint) Hot water storage.
