Aims
After a successfully completed course the students would be able to:
  • Use thermal analysis techniques for characterizing heat storage materials.
  • Understand the mechanisms governing the heat storage system.
  • Understand, apply and analysis the governing equations (heat, mass or momentum transport equations) in the bed of thermochemical material/ phase change materials.
  • Being able to solve these equation using the introduced numerical platform.
  • Critically interpret and analyze the found results.
  • Analyzing and establishing strategies for enhanced mass and heat transport in the heat storage system
Content
This course covers the necessary technical knowledge needed for tackling the challenges in performance of thermal energy storage systems. Students will be introduced to the software XDEM and will have to go through some basic assignments before being able to participate in the final assignment. In this way a sound understandings of mechanisms governing the charging, storage and discharging of a thermal storage system will be developed. Different experimental techniques for thermal characterization of phase change materials/ thermochemical materials for thermal energy storage applications will be reviewed.
