- Add New Network Technology: It allows you to add a new type of network technology that can be considered for connections between the hubs of the site.

- Add New Network Link: It allows you add a potential connection/link of a network technology between two hubs.


 

New Network Technology

- Network Technology Name: The name of the network technology based on its function, e.g. Heat 60-70 network.

- Energy Carrier: The energy carrier that could be transported with this network

- Lifetime [years]:  The lifetime is the number of years for which the network is expected to be useful.

- Network Loss [%/m]:  The losses as % of total capacity per meter of network length

- Fixed Investment Cost [CHF/m]:  Investment costs per meter for the entire lifetime of the network that are not relative to the installed capacity

- Variable Investment Cost[CHF/kW/m]: Investment costs per meter for the entire lifetime that depends on the capacity of the installed network

- Fixed O&M Cost [CHF/m]: Operational and Maintenance cost per meter per year that are not relative to the installed capacity.

- Fixed O&M Cost [CHF/kW/m]: Operational and Maintenance costs per meter per year that depend on the installed capacity.

- Minimum Capacity [kW]: Minimum Capacity that the conversion technology should have if it's chosen by the optimization

- Maximum Capacity [kW]: Maximum Capacity that the conversion technology should have if it's chosen by the optimization

- CO2 Investment [kgCO2-eq./kW]: CO2 emitted for the installation of the technology in the entire lifetime depending on the installed storage capacity.

- Save technology for future use:  Possibility to save the network technology for future use by checking the box before pressing Add.

 

 

New Network Link

 

- Node 1: The hub which constitutes one of the extremes of the link.

- Node 2: The other hub which constitutes the other extreme of the link.

- Network Technology: Which network technology can be potentially installed with this link geometry

- Uni-Directional Flow?: Whether 2 directions or just 1 can be chosen by the optimization for this link. The Sympheny engine will choose whether 1 à 2  OR 2 à 1 is the optimal direction of the energy flow
