Author / organization: Benedikt Leitner / AIT
Used Compoent model specification: Electric Heater Specification
Model of computation:
Simulation description: the electric heater is connected to a cold source (30°C) and receives mass flow setpoints. These setpoints start at zero and rise above the nominal mass flow of the component to show its behaviour at both design and off-design situations.

ElectricHeater Component Model implementation - short description
A model of an electric heater including a pump. The pump controls the mass flow through the heater which heats the fluid to a set temperature. The electric heater has a constant power-to-heat efficiency and a nominal heat flow rate.
Present use / development status
The model is part of AIT’s internal Modelica library for district heating and is usable for co-simulation with electric network models. The Modelica library uses the Modelica standard library and the IBPSA library as a core.
