Mentor Planner is a graphic planning and optimization tool for production and distribution of heat.
The basic element in the tool is the heat consumption forecast. With this tool the forecast can be provided for the entire supply area or divided into a number of zones.
The heat consumption forecast can besides a vital part in the planning also be used for other optimization functions such as temperature optimizing of flow temperature in a district heating network.
The tool consists of modules, which can be combined according to the specific needs of the client.
• Optimization of district heating networks
• Extended heat consumption forecast
• Temperature optimizing of flow temperature
• Peak load optimization
The planning is conducted on the basis of a visualization of SCADA-data, weather data and extrapolation of heat consumption.
The communication between the different operators is standardized, with the possibility to adjust it according to the specific needs and requests of the client.
