This study aims to discuss the effectiveness of “Demand-Supply Coordinated control” in reducing the power consumption required for conveyance by the heat transport medium in District Cooling and Heating (DHC) systems. The problem with DHC systems is that increased conveyance power is required to provide heating to consumers. As one of the measures to solve this problem, Demand-Supply Coordinated (DSC) control is introduced; however, its effectiveness and limitations have not been clarified so far. In this paper, first, the fundamental characteristics of a DHC system under DSC control are numerically examined. The results showed that the conveyance power consumption of DHC systems under DSC control can be classified into three regions, depending on the relative rate of demand change against the load-following capability of the heat source. Next, the authors compared the conveyance power of DSC control with that of Constant Supply Pressure (CSP) control adopted in conventional DHC, and showed regularity for each of the three regions mentioned above. Finally, the authors show the appearance frequency of these three regions of the practical DHC system under a real heat load in Japan. The results showed that the conveyance power required for DSC control is markedly lower than that of CSP control.
