About This Item


Full Description

District Heating Guide provides design guidance for all major aspects of district heating systems, including central heating plants, distribution systems, and consumer interconnections, for both steam and hot-water systems. It draws on the expertise of an extremely diverse international team with current involvement in the industry and hundreds of years of combined experience. In addition to design guidance, this book also includes a chapter dedicated to planning, with information on cogeneration of heat and electric power as well as the integration of thermal storage into a district heating system. Guidance on operations and maintenance is also provided to help operators ensure that systems function as intended.

In addition, examples are presented where appropriate, and three detailed case studies are included in an appendix. This guide is a useful resource for both the inexperienced designer as well as those immersed in the industry, such as consulting engineers with campus specialization, utility engineers, district heating system operating engineers, central plant design engineers, and steam and hot-water system designers. District Heating Guide fills a worldwide need for modern and complete design guidance for district heating systems.
