A practical guide to SUSTAINABLE THERMAL STORAGE SYSTEMS

Sustainable Thermal Storage Systems: Planning, Design, and Operations offers proven techniques for reducing energy costs, on-peak demand, capital costs, and pollution using thermal storage systems. Written by an expert in the field, this book discusses sustainability requirements, advantages and disadvantages of various systems, and the relationship among loads, equipment choices, and system selection. Real-world case studies examine chilled water thermal storage and ice thermal storage. Tips for operating a thermal storage plant to maximize investment are also provided in this valuable resource.

Comprehensive coverage includes:

  • Applicability and types of thermal storage systems
  • Sensible thermal storage systems
  • Latent thermal storage systems
  • Heating storage systems
  • Thermal storage system sizing
  • Conducting a feasibility study
  • Estimating energy use and analyzing costs
  • Thermal storage design applications
  • Thermal storage tank specifications
  • Operating and control strategies
  • Testing and commissioning requirements
  • Sustainable operations
