Abstract A single-phase one-dimensional model called CIEMAT1D1SF has been developed for characterizing the behaviour of thermocline tanks with an effective storage medium formed by either a liquid or a liquid and a packed-bed. Despite its simplicity, this model has been validated with experimental data and the results of tank performance are similar to those obtained by other authors using more complex simulation models. In order to obtain general results the thermal equation has been… CONTINUE READING
