Thermal storage can be applied to air conditioning systems to shift the demand on electricity grids to decrease the peak load. It is also a feasible backup for solar cooling systems to supply on-site loads during solar outages. Although chilled water has been widely used for thermal storage, phase change materials offer greater energy storage density than chilled water. Semi-clathrate hydrates, having large heat of fusion and phase transition temperatures in the range of 5-10°C, are proposed...[Show more]
