Heat Network Weather Compensation

Weather Compensation

For District and Communal heat networks, peak demand only occurs for a short period, and for most of the year the heating demand is relatively low - This can be managed effectively using weather compensation.

Modern heat interface units should operate with the heating supply temperature being automatically adjusted depending on the outdoor temperature. This enables the network temperature to be weather compensated, resulting in minimised energy use and heat loss.

This allows for a greater network supply and return temperature difference – network delta T - at peak load, therefore reducing the pipework and equipment size required. The supply temperature can thereby be reduced as the demand decreases due to warmer outdoor conditions.
