Please read the research report that can be downloaded from the above link. This article provides an analysis on cooling systems of residential buildings located in regions of tropical climate. It evaluated to which degree the integration of thermal energy storage (TES) and photovoltaic (PV) systems helps to approach an annual net zero energy building (NZEB) configuration.

Share and learn :

Learn the operation of air conditioning system of the base case (without thermal storage) and three scenarios with thermal storage described in Sec. 3.4, and the predicted results compared in Sec. 4.1 of this article. Compare these results with what we have discussed in the class and share your opinion about air conditioning system with thermal energy storage.
