Review of latent heat thermal energy storage for improved material stability and effective load management

This article reviewed the use of phase change materials (PCM) as thermal energy storages (TES) as they can be used to substitute large-scale energy demand and assist both economically and environmentally. The thermophysical properties of different phase change materials were studied to assess their viability ...

Strategy for visualisation of the activity of phase change materials by transient plane source technique

Phase change materials (PCMs) are materials that store thermal energy and undergo phase transitions when they are heated and cooled, making them effective alternatives to fossil fuels for building insulation. To determine the energy performance of PCMs in infrastructure it is important to understand their ...

Preparation and thermal properties of porous heterogeneous composite phase change materials based on molten salts/expanded graphite

This article discussed the creation of phase change composite materials using molten binary salts and expanded graphite (EG). Three different salts were used, LiNO3–KCl, LiNO3–NaNO3 and LiNO3–NaCl. The amount of salt in the composites varied between 77.8% and 81.5%. The thermal conductivity of the ...

Long-term supercooled thermal energy storage (thermophysical properties of disodium hydrogenphosphate 12H2O)

This paper examined the thermophysical properties of hydrate using disodium hydrogenphosphate 12H2O to develop a long-term latent heat storage (LTLHS) using supercooling. The thermal conductivities of solid and liquid disodium hydrogenphosphate 12H2O were measured using the transient plane source (TPS) technique. Results showed ...

Growth rate of crystallization in disodium hydrogenphosphate dodecahydrate

Phase change materials have supercooling characteristics that would benefit long-term latent heat thermal energy storage. This paper studied the physical and chemical properties associated with the growth rate of crystallization in disodium hydrogenphosphate dodecahydrate (DHD) as a function of a degree of supercooling. The transient ...
