Purpose - the purpose of this paper is to investigate efficient designs of a shell-and-tube latent thermal energy storage system through an approach based on the analysis of entropy generation it proposes innovative branched fins to maximize the performance of the system. A heat exchanger for use, eg, in a rear door of a server rack in a computer room, made up of pipes clad with a layer of a phase change material, such as a paraffin, so that latent heat is absorbed in the conversion from the solid to the liquid state. Thermal performance of the latent heat storage unit many indicate a significant enhancement in the system performance melting in a triplex tube heat. Increased melting heat transfer in the latent heat energy storage from the tube-and-shell model to the combine-and-shell model.
This paper presents experimental investigations of charging (solidification) and discharging (internal/external melting) periods of an ice-on-coil type latent heat thermal energy storage system experimental investigations are performed for various constant heat loads and inlet temperatures with several flow rates of the heat transfer fluid. Abstract thermal energy storage plays a key role in improving the efficiency of solar applications in this study, the energy storage behavior (melting or charging) and energy removal process (solidification or discharging) are investigated in the presence of paraffin wax as a phase-change material (pcm) in a horizontal shell-and-finned tube.
