Currently we are working hard on finishing the demonstration model of the Ecovat. Following on this, the first field tests will be executed in Autumn 2016, providing the first results by Winter 2016.
In anticipation of the field tests, Ecovat hired an engineer who will develop a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model of the demonstration model over the course of the next months. A CFD is a complex computer model that provides better insights in the expected thermal behaviour of the Ecovat system. The output of this model helps us better understand what to expect within the Ecovat system throughout the field tests, for example during charging the system.
Furthermore, the combination of a CFD model with the results of the field tests provide a representative insight in the behaviour or a larger scale Ecovat system. Utilising this knowledge, we know in advance how a larger Ecovat will behave, without first having to build it.
