Identification and analysis of thermal energy storage system with phase change materials and applications


Vipin Singh, Avinash Nath Tiwari, Prashant Khandelwal

Capital investment reduction, exergetic efficiency improvement and material compatibility issues have been identified as the primary techno-economic challenges. Thermal energy storage (TES) techniques is a good alternative to reduce the cost of solar-generated electricity, namely (1) sensible heat storage, (2) latent heat (tank filled with phase change materials (PCMs) or encapsulated PCMs packed in a vessel) and (3) thermo-chemical storage. Among these the PCM macro-encapsulation approach is one of the most-promising methods because of its high energy density and reduce the cost associated with the tank and increase the exergetic efficiency. There is a technological barriers to this approach to create a durable capsule, as well as an assessment of the fundamental thermal energy transport mechanisms during the phase change. This report includes heat transfer and induced fluid flow during melting and solidification of a confined storage. Emphasis has been placed on the thermal characterization of a single constituent storage module rather than an entire storage system.
