Abstract

Thermal energy storage (TES) is a key technology for energy conservation of great practical importance. TES is the best method for correcting the mismatch between the supply and demand of energy. Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS did not have any lab equipment for study of cold thermal energy storage (CTES). Additional equipment can be added on to the current available water chiller unit in the lab to demonstrate the application of CTES. This project targeted to design and fabricated a lab scale CTES using phase change· material (PCM), ice. This project studied the water chiller unit available in the lab and thermal properties of water and ice. CTES was designed according to the recommended cajlacity and fulfilled the design consideration requirement. Studies compared several types of thermal energy storage methods exist in the market and chosen encapsulated ice storage as the most suitable for lab demonstration which is also widely used in the world. Modifications were done on initial design to compromise and best suit with the current water chiller design and availability of material. Prototype fabrication was done by selecting the appropriate fabrication process, cost effective and ready market available material. testing and analysis were carried out to evaluate the prototype performance. this prbject produced a 3700kJ insulated encapsulated ice storage type CTES with 88% efficiency for students as an additional lab equipment for study of CTES.
