This dataset provides information gathered to determine end use load and assessment of existing DHS. It also provides Aspen simulation files used to model hybrid geothermal natural gas GDHC system along with Exchange Design and Rating (EDR) files to design Plate Heat Exchanger (PHE) and Capital cost estimator project set up used for capital cost evaluation of surface plant and retrofit distribution lines. In addition, ChemCAD files used for preliminary analysis of conversion of steam-based to hot water based system are included. A combination of proprietary and free software may be required to view some of the information provided. Software used for surface modeling, capital cost analysis include ASPEN Suite (HYSYS, EDR, ACCE). For ACCE template files, you will have to change the directories of the files to match your computer. The purpose of this document is to describe the contents of information contained within this submission to the Geothermal Data Repository (GDR) node of the National Geothermal Data System (NGDS) in support of Feasibility of Deep Direct-Use Geothermal on the West Virginia University Campus-Morgantown, WV.
