The product incorporates reliable tools for designing and optimising TES systems in CSP plants. The service offered are codes together with engineering services that optimise the specified TES system and/or develop new concepts (e.g. the multilayered thermocline system developed by the CTTC-UPC).
Computational tools for designing and optimization. Multi-layered thermocline system. Thermal energy storage in CSP plants. Thermocline systems. Two-tank systems.
Thermal energy storage (TES) systems have unsteady behavior, turbulent flows, phase change material (PCM) in latent storage, thermo-mechanical stresses and very large geometries where experimental information is rare or simply inexistent.
Termo Fluids offer a range of computational tools for design and optimization. They include a multi-layered thermocline system, thermal energy storage in concentrating solar power (CSP) plants, thermocline systems and two-tank systems.
• Levelized cost of energy (LCOE) reduction.
• Optimum designs using advanced codes.
• Personalized services.
