To estimate the thermal potential of a water reservoir like a river, or to run a thermal heat pump efficiently, we use numerical procedures to
simulate a running thermal heat pump and estimate the effects of water extracting and insertion into the water reservoir. By doing so, we can investigate at which injection
and production rates a thermal short-circuit is produced, which effects the efficient production of heat.
Therefore, we model the water reservoirs with existing boundary conditions detailed in terms of bathymetry, water flow and temperature. By varying the extracted volume per time and
extraction and insertion point we maximize the thermal haul, while environmental exposure is as small as possible.
- maximized thermal haul depending to the local boundary conditions
- favored points for water extracting and insertion within the reservoir
