A Simplified Method For Estimating The Peak Load In The Large Cold Stores


In this paper a simplified method for estimating the peak load in the large coldstores is found and its occurrence day by utilizing two new variables A & B. Thefirst variable represents the number of days that is necessary for cooling theproduct (storage) up to the needed temperature according to the daily temperaturedifferences only. The second variable represents the number of days required forcooling the total product (storage) depending upon the daily storage mass onlywithout returning back to the details of distribution of the daily thermal load that isfollowed in calculating thermal load for cold stores.By the demonstrative and analysis of the thermal load in cold stores with detailingstudy for each effective factors in estimating the thermal load characteristic isobserved that the factors daily temperature differences (D T) and storage mass(m) per day affect significantly in estimating the peak load values and day ofoccurrence.
