Characterisation of thermal properties and charging performance of semi-clathrate hydrates for cold storage applications

Wang, Xiaolin; Dennis, Michael


Thermal storage for air conditioning applications has potential to flatten peak load on electricity grids and improve energy savings of cooling systems. Phase change materials (PCMs) for thermal storage have much greater energy storage density than sensible thermal storage materials. It is proven that semiclathrate hydrates of tetra-n-butylammonium fluoride (TBAF) can offer appropriate phase change temperatures and rapid formation rates, thus they are considered favourable for cold storage.
