Abstract—Thermal Energy Storage using phase change materials has become an interesting area of
energy research because of its high energy storage density, isothermal nature of storage process
and small volume changes. There are wide ranges of phase change materials available
commercially. This work deals with paraffin and Palmitic acid eutectic mixture in three different
proportions as phase change materials and made an attempt to improve the properties.
Index Terms—Thermal energy storage system, Phase change material, Differential scanning calorimeter, SEM
