Numerical analysis of including phase change material in a domestic hot water cylinder
MetadataShow full item record
The domestic hot water cylinder incorporates encapsulated pcm placed in 57 vertical pipes. The use of PCM increases the thermal energy storage capacity of the cylinder and allows the use of low cost electricity during low peak periods. After experimental validation the numerical model developed in the
project will be used to optimize the distribution of the pcm inside the water tank.

(Elsevier, 2013)Thermal properties of materials used in building envelopes must be analysed in order to evaluate the thermal response of the constructive system. This thermal characterisation is a key point during the design phase of a ...
