The controlling of modern district heating systems requires accurate models and simulation tools. The description and necessary verification of a model that sets these ambitions is a matter of this contribution. The model comes out of the known method-plug flow modelling. The implemented model works on the pulling principle when the amount of heat from the producer is "pulled" by the customer. The model was implemented and verified on the date of the local operator of the heating plant and distribution network. The model has been set to the parameters of the part of a real DH network, and its accuracy has been tested about traffic delays and heat loss in the pipelines. For the present experiment, the full knowledge of the heat demand was considered. These were optimal conditions and perhaps not just because of it the result that the pull plug flow model achieved was a quite good matching the measured and calculated values.
