Abstract

Accurate modeling of solar heating or cooling with storage generally requires an accounting of the stratification within such storage tank,since overall system performance is significantly affected by the storage temperature distribution.In this study,a simple one-dimensional multi-node approach,taking into account of the axial heat conduction between nodes,has been used to theoretically analyze temperature stratification in the thermal storage tank.The results indicate that,for less collector area,the heat removal factor plays a major role in increasing the system performance,than the thermal stratification.Also,an optimum ratio of tank volume over collector area exists for a solar powered absorption air conditioning system.This paper also reviews the state of the art on different kinds of variable inlet design,and a simple new inlet design (partitioning the tank)has been introduced to effect better thermal stratification in storage tank.Ó2002Elsevier Science Ltd.All rights reserved.

1.Introduction

The efficiency of thermal energy systems can usually be improved by providing storage for hot and cold water depending on the load [1].For conventionally operated large air-conditioning systems,utility costs may be considerably reduced by operating the equipment at night,when off-peak electricity rates are low,and make use of the chilled water that w
as stored during the night to meet the next day’s load demand.Likewise,the performance of the entire solar
