The mainly purpose of this paper is to simulate the charging and discharging process of internal melt ice-on-coil thermal storage system based on the exited experiment. Its mathematic model is built and the results of the simulation and experiment are compared for verifying the simulation. The further analysis about the influence of whole ice storage and melt process is made from thermal resistance, diameter and pipe material. Analysis indicates that making diameter larger can make heat transfer better. Larger the heat transfer coefficient of the pipe can improve thermal efficiency, but the heat resistance will not be reduced obviously as the coefficient increase. © 2011 Published by Elsevier Ltd.
