P20 Thermal energy storage with PCM for energy systems in buildings
|Project leader Samer Sawalha
This project will investigate the integration of PCM thermal storage units into energy systems for heating and cooling in buildings. At the end of this project the energy system with integrated PCM thermal storage that has the highest potential for energy savings will be defined and designed for future testing. A special test rig will be built in this project to conduct the experimental evaluations of a real size thermal storage unit with PCM. Computer simulation modelling based on earlier experiences will be performed to validate the experimental findings. The results in this project will be published in at least two conference papers, one Swedish technical magazine, and four MSc thesis reports.
