A comparison of battery and phase change coolth storage in a PV cooling system under different climates

Wang, Xiaolin; Dennis, Mike


Energy storage in PV cooling systems is desirable to supply on-site loads during solar outages. Current storage methods of such systems typically use battery storage to store surplus electricity generated by solar panels or coolth thermal energy storage (CTES) to store excess cooling capacity produced by an electric-driven chiller. This study compares three cooling system configurations – no energy storage, with a battery storage, and with a phase change CTES, for a residential building under...[Show more]
