Engineering Research Seminar Series 35, 2011: Thermal Energy Storage (TES) System

En. Azman Abdullah, General Manager from SMARTECH

Date: 2011-09-22
Time: 18:00 to 19:00
Venue: Lecture Theater 6-0-09


The first part of the presentation introduces thermal energy storage (TES) system as a viable system to reduce the energy consumptions of a building. The second part covers the comparison between conventional air conditioning systems with thermal energy storage systems. The third part discusses the thermal energy storage operating strategies as well as the type of thermal energy storage media. A sample case study for thermal energy storage system will be presented to give a better understanding of the system. Finally, the integrated ontrol system and the major equipment involve in the system will also be discuss in the presentation.
