  author={Shakti Dhara Sharma and Hiroaki Kitano and Kazunobu Sagara},
Latent heat storage in a Phase Change Material (PCM) is very attractive because of its high storage density with small temperature swing. It has been demonstrated that, for the development of a latent heat storage system, the choice of the PCM plays an important role in addition to heat transfer mechanism in the PCM. The information on the latent heat storage materials and systems is enormous and published widely in the literatures. In this paper, we make an effort to gather the information… Expand
