A practical guide on how to plan, design, and construct sustainable thermal storage systems

Sustainable Thermal Storage Systems: Planning, Design, and Operations

  • Defines sustainable thermal storage
  • Discusses the types of facilities that can benefit from thermal storage
  • Outlines the various types of thermal storage systems available
  • Presents the key requirements in thermal storage planning
  • Includes thermal storage system sizing examples
  • Contains performance metrics
  • Explains how to conduct a feasibility study
  • Features case studies that demonstrate real-world applications

Use of thermal storage—also called thermal energy storage (TES)—can result in: reduced on-peak electric demand; reduced energy costs; smaller required chiller capacity to meet peak cooling demand; lower capital costs; lower life cycle costs; improved operational flexibility; less air pollution. This book covers all of these aspects.

Complete coverage:
Overview; Applicability of Thermal Storage Systems; Types of Thermal Storage Systems; Sensible Thermal Storage Systems; Latent Thermal Storage Systems; Heat Storage Systems; Thermal Storage Sizing; Conducting a Feasibility Study; Thermal Storage System Design Applications; Control Strategies and Requirements; Thermal Storage Specifications and Construction Process; Commissioning; Operations and Optimization; Case Study: Chilled Water Storage at Linda University; Case Study: Ice Storage System
