Seasonal heat storage: model development

October 03rd 2019

The aim of this project is to model thermochemical (TCM) particles using the simulation software Open Foam, and establish flow and heat transfer characteristics in between the particles. These characteristics are to be extrapolated to a continuum scale model that describes a TCM heat battery. Contact: Arjan Frijns

New materials for energy storage

October 21st 2019

This internship/master thesis project focusses on experimental studies for characterization of new salt for thermochemical energy storage. The experiments will be done in Lleida (Spain), where you will test the applicability of new materials for thermochemical energy storage. The experiments can be combined with a numerical (Molecular Dynamics) study, to investigate these new salts on a nanoscale level. Contact: Silvia Gaastra-Nedea

Multiscale models of new TCM materials

October 21st 2019

In order to improve the energy savings and promote renewable resources a reliable storage system is necessary. Thermochemical (TCM) heat storage is a highly appealing. However, challenges remain related to the materials stabilities and kinetics. To overcome these challenges you have to use multiple simulation methods (Molecular Dynamics, Monte Carlo methods, machine learning USPEX) to study these salts on a nanoscale level.

Cracks and pore formation in TCM

October 21st 2019

In order to improve the energy savings and promote renewable resources a reliable storage system is necessary. Thermochemical (TCM) heat storage is a highly appealing. However, challenges remain related to the materials stabilities and kinetics. These properties are improved by considering doped and composite materials based on salts hydrates This projects aims to understand the link between the chemical reactions and the pore and crack formations in the doped and un-doped structures. Multiscale simulation methods (Molecular Dynamics, Monte Carlo methods-Gibbs/GCMC) are going to be used to study these salts. Contact: Silvia Gaastra-Nedea
