Özet

This study focuses on utilization and benefits of spherical ice capsules in district cooling systems, and describes the relevant study methods and results. Cooling carried out by means of the latent heat of ice will save on electrical energy. It will be possible to use an existing cooling system as a heating system in the winter, so that fuel will be saved on the one hand and pollution will be reduced in the other hand. Furthermore, the system's water content can be used as utility water after cooling by means of ice balls (capsules) made of snow. Thus it will be possible to obtain maximum cooling at minimum cost, to reduce pollution by a significant rate, and to obtain water. The renewable energy sources are biorenewables, hydro, solar, wind, geothermal and other energies Alternative transportation fuels are substitute fuel sources to petroleum.
