Experimental studies using a concentric annulus storage system with Erythritol (melting point of 117.7 °C) as a phase change material (PCM) and augmented with longitudinal fins on the shell side, have been conducted to assess the thermal behaviour and heat transfer characteristics of this system. The study forms part of a broader investigation of PCMs to store energy to operate a LiBr/H2O absorption cooling system which operates with generator inlet temperatures of 70 °C–90 °C. The experiments… CONTINUE READING
