Heat Transfer Networks¶
This section lists the heat networks generated by OpenModelica. The topologies are not differentiated, since OpenModelica can only create thermal networks to a limited extent. The individual pipes are mainly divided into 5 sections (sections = 5).
Delta¶
Triangular network.

heat_transfer_delta
()¶  Returns
net  OpenModelica network converted to a pandapipes network
 Return type
pandapipesNet
 Example
>>> pandapipes.networks.simple_water_networks.heat_transfer_delta()
Delta with 2 Sinks¶
Triangular network with two sinks.

heat_transfer_delta_2sinks
()¶  Returns
net  OpenModelica network converted to a pandapipes network
 Return type
pandapipesNet
 Example
>>> pandapipes.networks.simple_water_networks.heat_transfer_delta_2sinks()
Heights¶
Crossshaped net with height differences between the individual nodes. (sections = 7, for each pipe)

heat_transfer_heights
()¶  Returns
net  OpenModelica network converted to a pandapipes network
 Return type
pandapipesNet
 Example
>>> pandapipes.networks.simple_water_networks.heat_transfer_heights()
One Pipe¶
One pipe with a sink.

heat_transfer_one_pipe
()¶  Returns
net  OpenModelica network converted to a pandapipes network
 Return type
pandapipesNet
 Example
>>> pandapipes.networks.simple_water_networks.heat_transfer_one_pipe()
One Source¶
Strand net with one source and one sink.

heat_transfer_one_source
()¶  Returns
net  OpenModelica network converted to a pandapipes network
 Return type
pandapipesNet
 Example
>>> pandapipes.networks.simple_water_networks.heat_transfer_one_source()
Section Variation¶
Mesh network with different values for “sections” of the four pipes (4, 7, 10, 16).

heat_transfer_section_variation
()¶  Returns
net  OpenModelica network converted to a pandapipes network
 Return type
pandapipesNet
 Example
>>> pandapipes.networks.simple_water_networks.heat_transfer_section_variation()
