About This Topic

Thermal energy storage offers undeniable benefits in different engineering fields, such as heat and power generation, energy transformation and management, harvesting and upgrading of waste energy. Energy efficiency and productiveness of various technological heat generation and heat transformation processes can be significantly improved by incorporating thermal energy storage. The practical realization of the thermal energy storage requires the storage technology to be selected and the technical components to be designed. The choice of the energy storage technology is a fundamental problem. Different engineering decisions can exist, each one offers advantages and drawbacks. The performance characteristics of the selected technology are inevitably linked to the materials characteristics, the underlaying working cycle and the control algorithm. Development of the innovative materials is one of the essential problems to improve volumetric energy storage density, to lower specific cost of the storage, to maximize efficiency characteristics, to increase thermal power output, to achieve reasonable size of the storage, to reduce thermal loss, to extend the lifetime of the storage.

Authors are invited to present original research articles, review articles, short communications or letters intended to cover studies on innovative materials, new characterization methods, novel technical concepts, advanced working cycles, hybrid control and optimization algorithms, case studies and applications for thermal energy storage and thermal energy management.
