Impact of periodic flow reversal of heat transfer fluid on the melting and solidification processes in a latent heat shell and tube storage system

This study addresses the heat thermal energy storage (LHTES) unit, heat is stored via a phase change material (PCM) which can then be supplied at a later time to the heat transfer fluid (HTF) for applications such as concentrated solar power (CSP).

Experimental investigation of the effect of dynamic melting in a cylindrical shell-and-tube heat exchanger using water as PCM

In the present paper, an experimental study is carried out to evaluate the effect of the dynamic melting concept in a cylindrical shell-and-tube heat exchanger using water as the phase change material (PCM) and a potassium formate/water solution as the heat transfer fluid (HTF).
