In recent years the research in the field of energy storage and its applications has rapidly increased, including research in Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) and Thermal Energy Storage (TES). This has led to a demand for a powerful dynamic modelling software tool for the modelling and control of CAES-TES system components, subsystems and complete systems with different configurations. On this website, a newly developed component-based software tool for research purposes is introduced, which can be used for CAES-TES dynamic modelling and control, system optimization, component coupling analysis, and can also provide guidance for the design and planning of demonstration projects and plants. The software tool provides a wide range of simulation models for storage based components. A component library is built up in the Matlab/Simulink software platform and is free to download. Using the software tool, complete CAES-TES system models can be formulated based on the desired objectives. Several case studies of CAES-TES subsystem or full system models, with control, are presented on the website.





Thermal energy storage

Thermal (TES) is a technology that stocks thermal energy by heating or cooling a storage medium so that the stored energy can be used at a later time for heating and cooling applications and power...

Compressed Air Energy Storage

CAES works in the process: the ambient air is compressed via compressors into one or more storage reservoir(s) during the periods of low electricity demand (off-peak) and the energy is stored in th...
