Energetic and Exergetic Analysis of the Low-temperature Heating System in a model library
Indian Journal of Science and Technology
Objectives: Energetic and exergetic analysis of the low-temperature heating system in a model library are conducted numerically in this research. Methods: The method of numerical investigation and simulation are employed to compute the energetic and exergetic analysis of the low-temperature heating system in a model library. The use of C++ programming and Hourly Analysis Program software were done the simulation and optimization. The results of this investigation are presented in this article.

It is shown that gas consumption decreases when lowtemperature radiators are applied and the value which is obtained is about 61,458,480 m 3 /yr. This means that the performance of the lowtemperature radiation is better than high-temperature radiator and it is about 57,150,000 m 3 /yr. The use of low-temperature radiators and high-temperature radiators are compared in this article. The radiator quality factor of the low-temperature radiators and hightemperature radiators are obtained 0.13 and 0.22, respectively. By using the low-temperature method, radiator quality factor is able to be declined 7% of the energy efficiency. Based on these cases, using the low-temperature system can be used in some regions in Iran. The economic investigation shows that the IRR is evaluated based on discount 30%, and interest rate 22% in 20 years. Application and improvement: The declination of energy consumption in building is significant. Therefore, a method which can use to reduce energy consumption is low-temperature heating in winter.
