Abstract [en]

This study evaluates numerically various configurations of direct-contact PCM thermal energy storage devices, regarding inlet location, inlet flow directions, pre-heating and inlet tubes with straight fins. The direct-contact conjugate heat transfer between the heat transfer fluid (HTF) and PCM during melting process, is solved numerically by enthalpy-porosity formulation in the computational fluid dynamic approach. The results indicate that pre-heating could form channels in a short time, which improve heat transfer rate for charging stages. To further enhance heat transfer performance, inlet tubes embedded with straight fins. Compared to pre-heating method, the electric power can be saved. Each design are evaluated with respect to their heat transfer performance vis-à-vis heat storage ratio.
