Thermal Energy Storage Analyses and Designsconsiders the significance of thermal energy storage systems over other systems designed to handle large quantities of energy, comparing storage technologies and emphasizing the importance, advantages, practicalities, and operation of thermal energy storage for large quantities of energy production.

Including chapters on thermal storage system configuration, operation, and delivery processes, in particular the flow distribution, flow arrangement, and control for the thermal charge and discharge processes for single or multiple thermal storage containers, the book is a useful reference for engineers who design, install, or maintain storage systems.

  • Includes computer code for thermal storage analysis, including code flow charts
  • Contains a database of material properties relevant to storage
  • Provides example cases of input and output data for the code
