Reliability Assessment of Combined Heating System Using Quota Heating Coefficient
The operation reliabilities of heating systems are always of great importance. As to the reliability assessment of a combined heating system with peak load compensation in the secondary heating network, it is suggested to use reliability ensuring coefficient based on quota heating coefficient rather than traditional reliability criteria. It is clear that the reliability ensuring coefficient S is capable of assessing the reliability of combined heating system in the most critical condition. Besides, peak load heat sources in secondary heating network can backup the primary heating network and augment the reliability to a certain extent.
