ICE storage tank in EnergyPlus

asked 2019-10-16 15:30:34 -0500


Is it possible to model ice storage tank in energyplus independent from building just to get its performance data? I have to gather different performance data from this model (solidification, melting, thermal storage, ...) I need to gather its performance data for training a neural network model.

regards, Mehrdad

@mehrdad_xyz If you are modeling ice storage in EnergyPlus, then by necessity you have specified all the performance curves for the simulation. Are you looking for performance data besides what you need to specify in the model?

I want to export some performance (input, output) data to train neural networks to predict the performance of the ice storage system. It would help me control the charging and discharging of storage.

You can model just the plant loops by using a LoadProfile:Plant object to impose a load on the chilled water loop. No building or HVAC system required. See example file PlantLoadProfile.idf.
