Thermocline tank behaviour during dynamic processes of charge/discharge and stand-by periods has been described in dimensionless form by means of the Logistic Cumulative Distribution Function (CDF). The Logistic-CDF parameter, S, has been correlated with both thermocline tank features and operation conditions (i.e. dimensionless velocity, v⁄, and time, t⁄) with the help of a single-phase onedimensional numerical model previously developed and validated. For the dynamic processes, it has been… CONTINUE READING
