An influence of thermal storage wall and intermediate space on the trombe wall system on the energy gain

KyungSu Park, Janghoo Seo

Abstract: Recently, there is growing interest in the passive solar system in order to realize energy saving in structures. However, among the passive solar systems, there is lack of appropriateness evaluation on the conditions of composition of the trombe wall system’s thermal storage wall. This study employed TRNSYS 17 in order to evaluate the thermal performance of the trombe wall according to the conditions of composition of the thermal storage wall in the structures using the trombe wall system. Comparing the thickness, interval between intermediate spaces, materials, and inlet area of the thermal storage wall, this study evaluated the thermal performance of the trombe wall system. And it has found that there was great effect according to the conditions of composition, and there was particularly great thermal performance according to the materials used. And if there are experiments and examinations based on actual measurement for the conditions and materials being presently applied, it is expected that the materials for excellent thermal storage performance and insolating performance and also the optimal conditions of composition will be possibly applied to the trombe wall system.
