This paper describes the experimental studies carried out to test thermal cycling of a real-scale PCM–air heat exchanger at ambient temperatures. To achieve this goal an experimental setup previously designed and used for testing real-scale prototypes of PCM–air heat exchangers is modified. The PCM used is commercially available, organic, and paraffin based. The total energy exchanged during melting and solidification, as well as the time elapsed until total melting/solidification are… CONTINUE READING
