Integrating thermal energy storage and CHP operations

08-10-2017 13:12

Summary

In October of 2013, Bucknell University completed the integration of new thermal energy storage (TES) system into the campus chilled water cooling system.  Bucknell installed the TES system primarily to increase peak cooling system capacity to serve future building loads. The system provides the secondary benefit of reducing peak electricity usage, thereby minimizing operating costs.

This presentation will review the project details, and resulting operation of the TES system with respect to the various other systems at the Utility plant. In addition, it will examine the ways that Bucknell University staff was able to optimize the value of the TES system.
