Modeling of cooling of ceramic heat accumulator

Open access


The analyzed heat accumulator is a key element in a hybrid heating system. In this paper, analytical and numerical models of the ceramic heat accumulator are presented.The accuracy of finite difference methods will be assessed by comparing the results with those obtained from the exact analytical solution.
