Abstract

The project will determine how successful Thermal Energy Storage systems are at storing heat for a certain period of time. The hypothesis for this project is that the change in materials used in the prototypes will not have an effect on how successful the system is at storing heat. The project will use thermal energy storage mediums such as gravel, sand, and water as well as others. It will then be determined which is the best to use and if applicable attempt pumped thermal storage. The project will then be tested to see how well energy can be stored and then used to power various appropriate devices. This is important because in the real world thermal energy storage is an important area of the clean energy industry and it can always be improved and applied in new circumstances. Data will show how successful the system is at storing heat for a certain period of time. The project will be successful by constructing prototypes to see which one is the best at preserving high temperatures, comparing the results between the substances tested. Future work on the project includes constructing multiple prototypes with the goal that each one will be better at storing thermal energy than the last one. Other future works include being able to generate electricity, and using it to power devices.
