District Heating [LINK]

When the user is not interested in a plant simulation or there is some centralized source of hot water, the following model can be used in the input. This allows the user to achieve a simulation without specifying operating parameters or curve fits for boiler models. This model only needs the connections to the loop and the nominal capacity to simulate. See the InputOutput Reference for additional information (Object: DistrictHeating). This model calculates the output capacity necessary from the inlet temperature to the setpoint temperature for that loop with the given mass flow rate in Watts.
