Energy Management System (EMS)

An energy management system control panel regulates how the heated input is used by monitoring the incoming and outgoing water temperatures as required. On the central heating side the panel will modulate its temperature output to match time and temperature set points as well as weather conditions to ensure minimal energy usage and maximum ambient comfort. Every electric component is covered by the automatic control method but the panel also includes manual override facilities to cater for any unforeseen controls circumstances.

The incoming energy is also used to heat the freshwater to provide the necessary domestic hot water requirements. The DHW is stored in two integral 3500 L densely insulated indirect calorifiers at a high temperature to maximise volume output and prevent any bacterial contamination. The insulation standard is capable of maintaining the stored volume to within 5°F in a 24-hour period.

The stored hot water is then passed to thermostatic mixing valves that reduce the temperature to safe usable levels as it is being delivered upwards by mixing the stored hot water with the incoming freshwater for precise regulation of the delivered temperature with an integral anti-scald mechanism to guarantee safe operation. The domestic hot water system also incorporates a highly effective recirculation process that will maintain the stored water temperature at a minimum cost while still having hot water available at the plumbing outlets when needed.

The DES calorifiers contain rapid heat exchange coils with the potential to completely recover the total 7000 litre contents to full temperature within one hour if the supply input temperature has that energy content.

The system’s concepts are well proven and comply with good practice and effective design technologies used throughout the heating industry. District Energy System has Numerous potential applications. A cost effective method known to create superlative heating system performance with the added benefit of decreasing the intended systems complexity and installation time with minimal running and maintenance costs.
