Study on Effective Use of an Ice Thermal Storage System with Simulation

Mingjie Zheng

Abstract: It is important to evaluate whether an ice thermal storage system can operate effectively as the way planned at the design stage. While designing an ice thermal storage system, generally, the thermal storage time is calculated by using rated capacity of refrigerator or the heat exchange capacity of ice-on-coil, and the heating capacity time is calculated by using the average ice melting ability of the ice thermal storage tank. In this paper, the author develops a simulation program for multi-connected complete-blending ice thermal storage tank and discusses the effective usability of a practical assembled ice storage system by using the program.
