Optimizing district heating: A model for enhancing heat supply and mass flow

To meet net-zero targets, innovative solutions are required to decarbonize heating in buildings, which often depend on fossil fuels for winter comfort. This thesis explores district heating to provide consistent, clean heat from sustainable sources like geothermal energy, hydrogen (co)generation, green methane, or bio-methane. The project develops a model aimed at optimizing heat and mass flow in district heating systems, ensuring efficient energy distribution. By applying this model to a real-size case study, the thesis evaluates the practical implications and efficiency potential of district heating in achieving decarbonization goals.
