New publication for DISTRHEAT

Our latest work on advanced model-predictive control of district heating networks is now available from Applied Energy! Costanza Saletti, a doctoral student from University of Parma, has proposed a smart control approach for the city of Västerås based on the concept of State of Charge for the thermal inertia of the DHN.
