Simulation and Dynamic Characteristics of Discharging Process of Storage Tank Used in Conventional Air-Conditioning
Mathematical model of heat transfer process of a latent heat thermal storage tank was established, dynamic performance and melting process of cool storage tank were simulated by the apparent heat capacity method. the relation of melting rate along with time and cold thermal energy released along with time were obtained. The results show that no appreciable change in the total cold thermal energy released is observed for the increase of flow rate, whereas improvement on total cold thermal energy released due to the increase of inlet temperature is detectable. At the cool discharge condition, the best inlet temperature of storage tank is at 12°C-13°C.
