Packed Bed Thermal Energy Storage System

Application ID: 101751

1D model of a thermal energy storage (TES) system consisting of a packed bed of pellets. Three approaches for heat transfer in porous media are compared:

  • A one-equation local thermal equilibrium (LTE) model
  • A two-equations local thermal nonequilibrium (LTNE) model
  • A multiscale hybrid two-equations LTNE model

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
