Deep Direct-Use Feasibility Study Energy Demand Characterization and Surface Plant Modeling for West Virginia University
This dataset provides information gathered to determine end use load and assessment of existing district heating systems (DHS). It also provides Aspen simulation files used to model hybrid natural gas geothermal district heating and cooling (GDHC) system along with Exchange Design and Rating (EDR) files to design Plate Heat Exchanger (PHE) and Capital cost estimator project set up used for capital cost evaluation of surface plant and retrofit distribution lines. In addition, ChemCAD files used for preliminary analysis of conversion of steam-based to hot water based system are included. A combination of proprietary and free software may be required to view some of the information provided. Software used for surface modeling, capital cost analysis include ASPEN Suite (HYSYS, EDR, ACCE). For ACCE template files, you will have to change the directories of the files to match your computer.
