Thermodynamic study of a LiBr–H2O absorption process for solar heat storage with crystallisation of the solution

Abstract : A heat storage process by absorption is studied in this paper. It is devoted to solar domestic systems. Energy and exergy studies are performed on the ideal cycle, and prove the contribution of the solutions crystallisation to the system storage density, with an improvement of 22%. A prototype has been built and tested in conditions compatible with domestic solar thermal collectors. The process has been proved successful for heat storage. The heat charging was more efficient than the discharging phase, with respective heat transferred in the range of 1 to 2 kW and 300 to 500 W, in typical solar domestic conditions. Crystallisation has been observed, and will increase the storage density but discrepancies were found between the ideal solution and the global prototype crystallisation behaviour, possibly due to some impurities presence and a slow dissolution kinetic.
