Air Conditioning with Thermal Energy Storage
This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of various TES technology options and discusses their inherent pros and cons.
Thermal energy storage (TES) system is a load shifting strategy for creation of cooling to off-peak hours. In a TES system, a storage media is cooled during periods of low cooling demand and the stored cooling is used later to meet air-conditioning load or process cooling loads. Operating refrigeration chillers at night and displacing energy use from peak (day time) to off-peak periods when the energy is at a lower cost is the primary objective of TES system.
As a proven technology, chilled water or ice thermal storage systems supply the desired reliability for high air conditioning availability during peak hours and can substantially cut operating costs and reduces capital outlays when systems are suitably designed. It offers building owners the potential for substantial operating cost savings by using off-peak electricity to produce chilled water or ice for use in cooling during peak-hours.
This 4 PDH online course is applicable to architects, air-conditioning engineers, controls engineers, contractors, environmentalists, energy auditors and loss prevention professionals. It is assumed that all the readers know the basic functioning of the air conditioning system.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Overview of thermal energy storage systems
- Understanding chilled water storage systems
- Understanding ice thermal storage systems
- Selecting a right TES system
- Familiarizing with district cooling system
