Abstract

This study deals with a monitoring and assessment of energetic and exergetic analysis of Salihli Geothermal District Heating System (SGDHS) in Manisa, Turkey. In the analysis, actual system yearly average data of latest heating season are used to assess the district heating system exergetic performance. New exergetic model is improved and compared with old exergetic model results throughout the SGDHS. The new exergy losses occur particularly due to the fluid flow, taking place in the reinjection of thermal water (e.g., geothermal fluid), pumps, and the heat exchanger, as well as the natural direct discharge of the system.
