Abstract


Many researchers investigated on theperformance of PCM(Phase Change Material) heat exchanger for latent cool storage. Now it’s a need of time to develop an experimental investigation which indicates the results in a simplest manner so that we can predict the results within the acceptable range of numerous results. A number of experiments were carried out to investigate the effects of the inlet coolant temperature and coolant flow rate on melting and solidification of PCM, heat transfer rate. The inlet coolant temperature is set below the temperature with 100% nucleation probability then it is found that cool energy can be fully stored in the form of latent heat. The aim of this paper is to discuss the performance of heat exchanger with phase change material as a latent cool storage by individual charging and discharging processes for various performance parameters and the results are presented and discussed.
