Abstract [en]

Optimizing solar and pellet heating systems can be performed by system simulations in TRNSYS. However; this requires detailed boiler models that can properly model the thermal behaviour of the boilers, such as stratification and thermal response. This study uses a combination of existing models for modelling of the pellet burner part (TRNSYS Type 210) and the water volume (TRNSYS Type 340). This approach addresses the thermal dynamics and internal stratification more accurately than other available models. The objectives of this work are to develop a method for parameter identification for the model and to validate this method and the model itself. Sets of parameters are identified for two pellet boilers and one pellet stove with a water jacket (extended room heater) and the model is validated with a realistic dynamic operation sequence. The results show that modelling of stratification is essential in order to model the true behaviour of residential boilers. The test sequences used were adequate to parameterise the models and to provide the desired accuracy, except regarding the heat losses to room air. The model shows good accuracy for a stove and one boiler, but slightly worse performance for the other boiler regarding dynamics and modelling of the stratification.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this survey is to explore different simulation software for designing of ground source heating systems. Models to simulate borehole storages, heat pumps, and system components like water storages, hydraulics and building loads are explored. This study is based on a literature survey of software and models for simulation of geothermal heating and cooling systems with focus on vertical ground heat exchangers. The study focus on the software used by the authors, which are EED, TRNSYS, Polysun, Modelica, IDA ICE, and Matlab/Simulink+Carnot.  The scopes and limitations of the software and models are evaluated and the advantages and disadvantages with the software are addressed.  It was found that the user-friendliness is strongly linked to the level of flexibility in the models. Higher flexibility usually means less user-friendliness and more time to learn the tool. EED, Polysun and IDA are considered to be the more user friendly softwares, while Modelica, TRNSYS and Matlab/Simulink+Carnot are considered to be the more flexible softwares. The models covering most of the aspects of borehole simulations are the TRNSBM-model in TRNSYS and the “INTERACT 2016” model for Modelica.
