Quantity regulation is a basic regulation mode of district heating networks. First, aiming at the characteristics of the quantity regulation that the flow is variable and in the turbulent resistance square area, a second-order cone relaxation method for pressure drop of hydraulic branches is proposed, and a penalty cost term is introduced to ensure exact relaxation. Second, according to the characteristics of the stable thermal condition of quantity regulation, a equivalent heat loss method of thermal branches is proposed. The heat loss of the pipeline is equivalent to the load to form a lossless pipeline, which realizes the independent analysis of hydraulic and thermal models. Then, combined with the branch flow model of the distribution network, a joint power flow model of the district heat-electric system is built. Furthermore, a joint optimal power flow model with the form of convex-concave programming for the district heat-electric system is established. Finally, the optimization model is transformed into a second-order cone programming problem and solved sequentially. Simulation cases show that compared with the non-convex accurate model, the proposed method retains a high solution accuracy, improves the solving speed significantly, and can obtain the global optimal solution.
