.... The study deals with the SS under five different concentrations of salt (0, 5, 10, 20, and 35 g/kg). Previous experimental results reported in the literature indicate that the increase in salinity leads to a decrease in productivity, so phase change material (PCM) was added under the water basin to counter...

...Hermes Chirino; Ben Xu Compared to solar photovoltaics, concentrated solar power (CSP) can store excessive solar thermal energy, extend the power generation, and levelize the mismatch between the demand and supply. Thermal energy storage (TES) system filled with phase change material (PCM) is a key...

... the two-phase heat transfer fluid poses a major challenge. A three-part storage system is proposed where a phase change material (PCM) storage will be deployed for the two-phase evaporation, while concrete storage will be used for storing sensible heat, i.e., for preheating of water and superheating...

...Wolf-Dieter Steinmann; Rainer Tamme Solar thermal systems, including direct steam generation in the absorbers, require isothermal energy storage systems. One option to fulfil this requirement is the application of phase change materials (PCMs) to absorb or release energy. The implementation of cost...
