A dynamic simulation program may be used for the development of effective control algorithms for the ice storage cooling system. Simplified effective dynamic models for an ice-on-coil type storage tank, a screw chiller, a water-to-air heat exchanger, three way valves, pipes, pumps, temperature sensors, and controllers were developed. And a dynamic simulation program for the ice storage cooling system was developed by using these dynamic models. Control algorithms for the full storage system were also selected and analyzed in order to show the effectiveness of these models. From the simulation results, it may be concluded that the simulation program developed in this study can be effectively used for the development of improved control algorithms for the ice storage cooling system.
