Abstract

The present building energy consumption can be reduced by replacing the air conditioning system with Thermal Energy Storage (TES) system. In this present work, a semianalytical model is applied to analyze the shell and tube type TES system for air cooling-heating application. The laminar forced convection heat transfer phenomena in between phase change material (PCM) inside a shell and air inside the tube are studied. The heptadecane PCM with 22C melting temperature is used for this TES system. The melting front propagation is also analyzed. The outlet air temperatures are found 24C to 26C for the 32C inlet air temperature.
