Passive thermal energy storage in refrigerated warehouses.


The paper investigates operational strategies that use stored products as thermal mass to shift refrigeration loads to more favorable operational periods (low energy cost periods, lower outdoor air conditions, etc.) allowing an opportunity to reduce system operating costs. An integrated model of the stored product, warehouse air, and warehouse structure is developed and thermal response characteristics are predicted for a selected low temperature warehousing facility.
