Abstract: With rapid and advanced development of the ice storage technology, the application of ice storage systems becomes popular in both industrial and commercial sectors. It appears that the trade and design consultants always prefer to adopt the 'parallel' configuration or 'series arrangement - chiller priority' configuration ice storage systems for both commercial and industrial applications. The 'series arrangement - ice store priority' ice storage system does not have the similar recognition compared to other configurations. The prime objective of this dissertation is to analyze the performance of ice storage systems with the 'series arrangement - ice store priority' configuration based on an actual installation in the city of Beijing, People Republic of China. It is to demonstrate that this configuration will give an equally good performance if it is designed, installed, tested, commissioned and operated properly. Firstly, the dissertation outlines basic systems, control and operational options that can be considered during the design of ice storage systems. It also contains a brief description of basic system components to be required in an ice storage system. Secondly, a detailed description of the 'series arrangement - ice store priority' configuration ice storage system, which is installed and operated in Beijing currently, is included. By using the data collected in the installation, the cooling and electrical performance of this system is analyzed in details. Finally, a conclusion and recommendation are included in this dissertation. These summarize the finding and major design criteria of the ice storage system for future applications.
