Modeling and Estimation of Temperature Transient Process of Heat Carrier in Heating System
Transient temperature process of the heat carrier flowing in a conduit is investigated at a certain selected distance from the heat carrier temperature unit jump point. An electro analogical model of heat carrier temperature is designed. The model is realized and analysed by electrical circuits simulator PSpice included in the software OrCAD. It was defined that the transient change of heat carrier temperature is not the first order lag process when assessing it precisely. Expressions achieved by theoretic calculations are presented to calculate heat carrier front temperature and steady fluid temperature. Expression summarizing modelling results according to which it is possible to estimate the time constant of transient process of heat carrier fluid temperature is presented too.
