Data mining is the application of AI techniques to analyse large data sets and extract information. When applied to thermal energy storage, data mining enables the analysis of system data and the identification of patterns and correlations in thermal energy use. This can improve the efficiency of the storage system and the effectiveness of thermal energy use.
5. Machine learning
Machine learning is AI techniques that can learn from experience and adapt to a changing environment. When applied to thermal energy storage, machine learning allows the system to be optimised for thermal energy use efficiency. Algorithms can identify the best storage methods and parameters based on system data.
