District Cooling Open Source Library (DCOL)

  • 2. IRUSE, Informatics Research Unit for Sustainable Engineering. National University of Ireland, Galway


DCOL (an open-source library with parametric thermo-fluid dynamic models of District Cooling System components) is part of the main developments carried out within the EU funded project, INDIGO. This library is meant to support the District Cooling (DC) systems’ designers (private ESCOSs and others). The models provide detailed information about physical behaviour of DC system components, thus allowing for a better overall system design. In addition, the library is used within INDIGO to produce simpler models to support model-based applications. Particularly, the models are reduced to build the model predictive controllers developed in the project. Simplified version of the developed models are used as benchmark in a DC planning tool.
