In this paper we study the frequency and
time domain behaviour of a heat exchanger network system.
The system is governed by hyperbolic partial differential
equations. Both the control operator and the observation
operator are unbounded but admissible. Using the theory
of symmetric hyperbolic systems, we prove exponential
stability of the underlying semigroup for the heat exchanger
network. Applying the recent theory of well-posed
infinite-dimensional linear systems, we prove that the
system is regular and derive various properties of its
transfer functions, which are potentially useful for
controller design. Our results remain valid for a wide class
of processes governed by symmetric hyperbolic systems.
