  1. 1. Prediction of power and energy use in dwellings : Addressing apects of thermal mass and occupant behaviour

    University dissertation from Lund University, Lund Institute of Technology, Division of Building Services, P.O. Box 118, SE-22100 LUND, Sweden

    Author : Victor Fransson; [2020-05-13]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggnadssimulering; Termisk massa; Värmetröghet; boendes beteende; hushållsel; varmvatten; building simulation; thermal mass; thermal inertia; occupant behaviour; household electricity; domestic hot water;

    Abstract : Households are responsible for approximately 26 % of the annual energy use in the EU. Following the EU-directives regarding energy performance in buildings, international initiatives have been taken in Europe to help countries to define and include guidelines in their own building codes, for example, to establish the concept of zero energy buildings, ZEBs.

    Abstract : Buildings are the largest energy-using sector in the world. Since the generation of energy is highly associated with greenhouse gas emissions, contributing to climate change, there is a large focus on reducing energy use in buildings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Design of Thermal Energy Storage with Phase Change Materials - Investigations within Material, Device and System Scale

    University dissertation from Gothenburg : Chalmers tekniska högskola

    Author : Pepe Tan; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Thermal Energy Storage; Experimentation; Phase Change Materials; T-History;

    Abstract : The addition of a thermal energy storage (TES) into a process allows the operator to store and release thermal energy on demand. This increased process flexibility leads to potential benefits such as shifting energy demand from peak to off-peak hours. READ MORE

  5. 5. On the thermal inertia and time constant of single-family houses

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Johan Hedbrant; Björn Karlsson; Mats Söderström; Stig-Inge Gustafsson; Karin Adalberth; [2001]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Electric heating;

    Abstract : Since the nineteen-seventies, electricity has become a common heating source in Swedish single-family houses. About one million smallhouses can use electricity for heating, about 600.000 have electricity as the only heating source. READ MORE
