Introduction This chapter discusses and provides examples of thermal storage system sizing for chilled water (CHW), hot water (HW), and ice storage systems, which as previously noted are among the most common type of thermal storage systems in use today. The key input for any thermal storage system is the total thermal load over the period evaluated, using the load profile for the period with the greatest load. The load profile means the load per each unit of time. If, for example, the loads are calculated hourly and the period under evaluat…
