  1. 1. Automating dataflow for a machine learning algorithm

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS); KTH/Skolan för elektroteknik och datavetenskap (EECS)

    Author : Albert Gunneström; Erik Bauer; [2019]
    Keywords : Automation; Dataflow; Machine learning; District heating; Automation; Dataflöde; Maskininlärning; Fjärrvärme;

    Abstract : Machine learning algorithms can be used to predict the future demand for heat in buildings. This can be used as a decision basis by district heating plants when deciding an appropriate heat output for the plant. This project is based on an existing machine learning model that uses temperature data and the previous heat demand as input data. READ MORE

  2. 2. Improved control strategies for primary frequency control in Swedish combined heat and power plants

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för reglerteknik

    Author : Gustav Sondell; [2019]
    Keywords : Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : A model of the Swedish power plant Mälardalen Energi, developed by Solvina AB was simulated in Dymola with different types of control strategies in order to evaluate if they could improve the operational flexibility of the plant and, thus, its ability to deliver frequency control to the Swedish power grid. Several different control strategies and process modifications were tested and compared to previous simulations done by Solvina. READ MORE

  4. 4. UNDERSTANDING THE PRODUCTION BEHAVIOUR OF COMBINED HEAT AND POWER PLANTS : A mathematical programming approach

    University essay from Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik; Mälardalens högskola/Akademin för ekonomi, samhälle och teknik

    Author : Mathias Bäckström; Anton Hellberg; [2018]
    Keywords : Combined Heat and Power; electricity market; production behavior; cogeneration; flexibility and optimization;

    Abstract : This thesis investigates how combined heat and power plants (CHP) produce electricity, with respect to several external factors including outdoor temperature and electricity prices. The purpose is to develop and evaluate a tool, with the aim to increase the understanding of CHP plants electricity production behaviour. READ MORE

  5. 5. Optimization and Control of Heat Loads in Buildings

    University essay from KTH/Energiteknik

    Author : Matilda Stendahl; [2018]
    Keywords : district heating; peak shaving; capacity control; smart heating; demand side management; fjärrvärme; toppkapning; effektstyrning; värmestyrning; efterfrågesidahantering;

    Abstract : District heating is considered an environmentally friendly, efficient and cost-effective way of providingheat to buildings but even so, the industry will be facing several challenges in the upcoming years. Acombination of higher operating costs, growing demand, competition from alternative heatingtechnologies, national and international climate and energy goals and the need for transparency towardscustomers places high requirements on many thermal energy suppliers.
