This project investigates the effects of using a stratified thermal storage tank in conjunction with the existing chiller system at the Façade Thermal Lab, School of Architecture, University of Texas at Austin.
To facilitate this project, a model of the thermal system components – cooling coil, chiller, and thermal tank – are modeled. Only thermal components are modeled, as plumbing components are essentially identical between the two configurations.
