Opening the black-box: A case study of a borehole thermal storage


The Energy Machines Verification tool (EMV) is a combined hardware/software solution based on physical measurements, a service REST API (REpresentational State Transfer Application Programming Interface) and thermodynamic models of the heat pumps in order to provide online/live transparent performance monitoringof these, as well as perform analysis on historically logged data. Here we present a case study where a combination of this tool and energy-meters are used on an existing plant to de-convolute the system COP and the negative energy balance of a borehole thermal storage (BTES), which may predict, and prevent potential long-scale temperature drops inside the BTES.
