Thermal storage - heat buffer
Is there any work-around to simulate a heat buffer as thermal storage device in combination with a CHP generator? The idea is to store surplus heat to satisfy a thermal load at a later point in time. Such a scenario is very common in CHP applications where the generator has a certain minimum run-time but thermal load is already satisfied or in a scenario where the generator runs to sell electricity to the grid but thermal load is lower than heat generation. Thanks for any hints.
