Communication in energy information networks

Dynamic simulation of energy flows and storage of waste heat from data centers and of the integration of large storage systems in local heating networks

Excess energy can be stored via heat pumps in low-temperature storage systems and removed via ORC processes. The dimensioning and suitable modes of operation for economic operation are researched by means of dynamic simulation.
