Abstract: This paper presents a new model of a non-agitated ice slurry storage tank. Modelling is based on energy balances applied to separate ice and water layers. The defining equations are then discretized and used as a base for a new component for the TRNSYS energy simulation program. A comparison of the new component model with measured data confirms its ability to predict the ice mass and tank fluid temperature in both the ice building and ice melting modes of operation.
