Dear Jeff,

Thanks for the swift reply.

We are looking to model an ice storage tank that is not installed in the ground. But somewhere in or near a building (~ 2
The tank is connected to a solar collector (charging) and to a heat pump (discharging). Both via a heat exchanger.

Thanks again.

Len - what features do you need in your ice storage tank (you mentioned that 343 isn't suitable but didn't give a reason why)?  This will help us answer your questions.

Dear TRNSYS users,

I am looking for a model of a ice storage tank for domestic use.

Type 343 is not suitable in our context. In literature I found references to potentially suitable types: 213,843, 860,861, ….
However, for these types it is not clear if and where they are made available.

Has someone experience with modelling an ice storage tank? If so, from where can we obtain the type?

Thanks in advance.

With kind regards,

Len Rijvers
