Energy consumption related to heating and cooling is a significant portion of the overall energy requirement of a building. With environmental and financial benefits in mind, this study simulates an increased thermal capacitance (ITC) and thermal storage management (TSM) system to reduce this energy dependence. The ITC/TSM system is also coupled with phase change materials (PCM), which enable tank volume reduction without loss of thermal capacitance storage capabilities. View this paper.
