Evaluation of the design length of vertical geothermal boreholes using annual simulations combined with Genopt

Abstract: Software tools to determine the design length of vertical geothermal boreholes typically use a limited set TRT test or calculated from borehole heat transfer theory (Bennet et al., 1987). of averaged ground thermal loads and are decoupled from building simulations. In the present study, multiannual building hourly loads are used to determine the required borehole lengths. This is accomplished within TRNSYS using GenOpt combined with the duct ground heat storage (DST) model for bore fields. Tout,hp Fluid loop D Tin H Tout,hp Heat pump Tin,hp Tout Pump
