Testing of the Heat Source Scheduler in the the Austrian Pilot

To validate, improve and test the tools developed in the Store4HUC project, we used the Optimal Heat Source Scheduler in our biomass heating pilot plant in Weiz, Austria. There, the tool could be used to optimize the plant's heating schedule and develop ideas to improve operations, as well as to show the impact of the newly installed heat storage.

As data input, we used real data from two seperate Days, one cold day in January and one warm day in April.

The functionality of the tool is the same as before: download -> unzip -> open Excel -> allow macros.

In the .zip folder there are the two examples, which you can test by clicking on „Run scheduler“ - the necessary profiles are already imported in the files.

Download the test runs here to see for yourselve!
