Validation of an Ice Storage Model and its Integration into a Solar-Ice System

Ice storages allow the storing of solar heat in a compact volume for the later use as source for a heat pump that provides heat for a building. In the paper a novel ice storage with 2 m3 water volume is described which contains heat exchanger plates for extracting the latent heat. Most of the components of the storage are made of stainless steel ensuring a long service life time. We present a detailed numerical model for heat exchanger plates that was implemented into the system simulation software Polysun.
