Department of Mechanical Engineering, Dr. M G R University, Chennai, India

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
