Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


The development of models for both direct and indirect ice-storage systems is described and their salient features as applied to energy analysis calculations are discussed. These models have been implemented in the Building Load Analysis and System Thermodynamics (BLAST) energy analysis program. Relevant control strategies used by the ice-storage models are presented, and an example of matching the model parameters to the manufacturer's performance data is discussed.
