Investigation of the verticalflow aquifer thermal energy storage concept and numerical simulation of the Dorigny field experiment
Abstract
A mathematical modeling study of the verticalflow aquifer thermal energy storage concept is made. A history match calculation of the Dorigny field experiment, part of the SPEOS project, is carried out using two simplified models. Then the main heatloss mechanisms are isolated to study their relative importance. Finally, variations on the Dorigny experimental configuration are studied to examine the behavior of the verticalflow storage system in general.
