Thermal Energy Storage Systems Design

Abstract

The design of thermal energy storage (TES) system plays a significant role in achieving energy redistribution requirements when integrated with a dedicated cooling or heating system. The sizing of the thermal storage system as a function of demand load profile and on the basis of operating strategies can effectually achieve reduction in chiller load during electrical peak periods. The design methodology of TES systems incorporating flexible provisions to include or change operating strategies depending on the changing load demand can result in a more promising way of shifting the peak load demand to off-peak periods. The operating strategies of TES systems can be designed to fully utilize ...
