Long-term, compact thermal energy storage (TES) is essential to the development of cost-effective solar and passive building-integrated space heating systems and may enhance the annual technical and economic performance of solar domestic hot water (DHW) systems. Systems should provide high energy storage density, charge and discharge temperatures that match the heat source used for charging and the intended load, adequate charge/discharge power, and employ storage materials that are stable over many cycles, non-toxic, environmentally safe. Moreover, these systems must compete effectively in the marketplace and therefore should provide an economic benefit compared to conventional heating and DHW systems, which have traditionally relied on sensible water storage.

The activities in this working group are aimed at developing and testing numerical models that help to understand and optimise the material behaviour and the dynamic behaviour of compact thermal energy storage systems and components based on Phase Change Materials (PCM’s) and Thermo Chemical Materials (TCM’s). Ultimately, these numerical models could help to find ways to optimise the materials in combination with the system components. The activities in this working group help to lay the foundation for such models.

As the knowledge of the behavior of heat storage materials is very essential to design an application it is important to characterize these materials. The important characteristics of heat storage materials are their heat capacity, the thermal conductivity, the density and viscosity all in dependency on temperature. All these parameters are necessary to size a thermal storage or to develop heat exchanger to charge and discharge such storages. Simulations are also very often used to analyze applications or components of it and their interaction with the storage material. Such simulations will not be valid if the used material data is not describing its behavior in a correct way, so also for this purpose good and reliable results from the characterization are needed.

To reach high solar fractions, it is necessary to store heat or cold efficiently for longer periods of time. At this time, there are no cost-effective compact storage technologies available. For high solar fraction systems, hot water stores are expensive and require very large volumes of space. Alternative storage technologies, such as phase change materials (PCMs), sorption materials and thermochemical materials (TCMs) are only available at the laboratory scale, and more R&D is needed before they are available commercially.

For the correct design of thermal storage systems using phase change materials (PCMs) in any application, as well as for their simulation, it is essential to characterise the materials from thermophysical and rheological standpoints (phase change enthalpy, thermal conductivity in solid and liquid phases, viscosity and density in function of temperature). Taking advantage of the different research groups facilities available in two international networks: within the IEA (International Energy Agency), the ECES Implementing Agreement (Energy Conservation through Energy Storage IA) and SHC Programme (Solar Heating and Cooling) Task 42/Annex 24 ‘‘Compact Thermal Energy Storage – Material Development for System Integration’’, and the COST Action TU0802 ‘‘Next generation cost effective phase change materials for increased energy efficiency in renewable energy systems in buildings (NeCoE-PCM)’’ a set of Round Robin Tests (RRTs) was proposed.

Magnesium salt hydrates are potential thermo-chemical energy storage materials considering its high energy storage density and its availability. However, in practical applications, these materials suffers from low efficiency due to their sluggish kinetics and significant structural changes during hydration and dehydration. A DFT PW91-TZ2P level optimization is performed on the various hydrates of magnesium sulfate molecules to study their structural properties. The study identifies a wide network of hydrogen bonds which is significantly influencing the chemical structure of the molecules. These hydrogen bonds appear to cause distortions in the hydrated structures and even hindering the coordination of water with magnesium resulting in lower energy isomers. In the case of hexa-hydrated isomers, the hydrogen bond stabilizes a conformation which has only four coordinated water molecules, and is energetically more stable than the conformation with six coordinated water molecules. The sluggish hydration kinetics in magnesium sulfate is attributed to the strong hydrogen bond network present in the crystals. In addition, the hexahydrated structure exhibits an intra-molecular proton transfer reaction. This suggests that the strong hydrogen bond interactions potentially dissociates water molecules during hydration.

Adsorption properties of porous materials for solar thermal energy storage and heat pump applications
SHC 2012
July 2012 - PDF 0.21MB - Posted: 2012-11-14
By: J. Jänchen, H. Stach
The water adsorption properties of modified porous sorbents for solar thermal energy storage and heat transformation have been investigated by thermogravimetry (TG) differential thermogravimetry (DTG), microcalorimetry, measurements of water adsorption isotherms, and storage tests. A chabazite type SAPO, a dealuminated faujasite type zeolite, and a mesostructured aluminosilicate, have been synthesized and compared with common zeolites X, Y and silica gel. It has been found that optimized lattice composition and pore architecture contribute to well adapt hydrophilic properties and a beneficial steep isotherm.
New two-component water sorbent CaCl2-FeKIL2 for solar thermal energy storage

Publisher: Microporous and Mesoporous Materials
A new two-component (composite) water sorbent CaCl2-FeKIL2 has been developed for sorption-based solar thermal energy storage. The matrix of the composite is FeKIL2 material with disordered mesopores, high surface area of 712 m2/g and mesopore dimensions between 4 and 29 nm. The composite, prepared by wet impregnation of FeKIL2 with CaCl2, has lower surface area (418 m2/g) and similar mesopore dimensions as the matrix. The maximum water sorption capacity of FeKIL2 is 0.21 g/g, while the composite possesses 3 times higher maximum water sorption capacity due to the presence of the salt in the matrix. Heat of adsorption of the composite is 50.4 kJ/mol. A short-term cycling test between temperatures of 150 and 40 C at a water vapour pressure of 5.6 kPa confirms a comparatively good hydrothermal stability of the composite.

Novel binderless zeolite beads of types A and X have been synthesized and characterized by scanning electron microscopy, mercury intrusion, nitrogen adsorption, thermogravimetry, water adsorption isotherm measurements, cyclic hydrothermal treatments and storage tests. The binderless molecular sieves show an improved adsorption capacity, sufficient hydrothermal stability, higher specific energies and the potential for a better performance density of the storage. Both open and closed storage tests have shown comparable adsorption capacities and specific energies for the binderless molecular sieves. A significantly higher discharging temperature, however, could be realized with the open storage system.

Water vapor sorption in salt hydrates is one of the most promising means for compact, low loss, and long-term storage of solar heat in the built environment. One of the most interesting salt hydrates for compact seasonal heat storage is magnesium sulfate heptahydrate (MgSO4·7H2O). This paper describes the characterization of MgSO4·7H2O to examine its suitability for application in a seasonal heat storage system for the built environment. Both charging (dehydration) and discharging (hydration) behaviors of the material were studied using thermogravimetric differential scanning calorimetry, X-ray diffraction, particle distribution measurements, and scanning electron microscope. The experimental results show that MgSO4·7H2O can be dehydrated at temperatures below 150°C, which can be reached by a medium temperature (vacuum tube) collector. Additionally, the material was able to store 2.2 GJ/m3, almost nine times more energy than can be stored in water as sensible heat. On the other hand, the experimental results indicate that the release of the stored heat is more difficult. The amount of water taken up and the energy released by the material turned out to be strongly dependent on the water vapor pressure, temperature, and the total system pressure. The results of this study indicate that the application of MgSO4·7H2O at atmospheric pressure is problematic for a heat storage system where heat is released above 40°C using a water vapor pressure of 1.3 kPa. However, first experiments performed in a closed system at low pressure indicate that a small amount of heat can be released at 50°C and a water vapor pressure of 1.3 kPa. If a heat storage system has to operate at atmospheric pressure, then the application of MgSO4·7H2O for seasonal heat storage is possible for space heating operating at 25°C and a water vapor pressure of 2.1 kPa.
