TN681 – Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry applied to Thermal Energy Storage (TES)

The Thermal Energy Storage (TES) is defined as the temporary storage of thermal energy at high or low temperatures. As most of the renewable energy sources (solar, wind, …) are intermittently available, the target of TES is to improve performances of energy systems with a smoother supply and an increased reliability.For each TES mode, various types of transformations or reactions are available and are well known. This application note will demonstrate how the thermal analysis and calorimetric methods are used to investigate the
different TES techniques and to characterize the materials (solid and liquid) used in the corresponding processes.
