Abstract:
This work is aimed to illustrate the formulation and implementation of a thermo-chemical reactor model for seasonal storage of solar heat under development at the Energy Research Center of the Netherlands, in such a way to give information about the design of the planned lab-reactor upscale. The implementation of the model has been carried out by using the commercial software COMSOL Multiphysics, which enabled to solve the proposed system of partial differential and algebraic equations, both in space and time.
