Reduction and periodic

Heat storage systems have the function of storing the thermal energy produced by cogeneration thermoelectric plants during the hours when demand is lower than the production capacity of the cogeneration plants, in order to release it, efficiently, during the peak load hours of the district heating network. This way, the operation of the cogeneration system is optimised.
