This paper shows how to simulate a CHP network (CHP = Combined Heat and Power) using the method of linear programming. This method makes it possible to optimize the mathematical model and subsequently find the very best combination of electricity production, electricity purchase and heat production in a district heating system. The optimal solution in the model is characterized by the lowest possible operating cost for year. The paper shows the design of the mathermatical model and furthermore a case study is presented using the district heating net in Malmö, Sweden, as an example.
