Effect of Container Size on Thermal Performance of Sugar Alcohol (D-Mannitol) in Concentrated Solar ReceiverAuthor(s): Ramalingam Senthil and Marimuthu Cheralathan
Phase change material (PCM) employed inside the solar receiver increases the usability. The geometry of PCM container is an important factor for the phase change of PCM. The influence of size of the container on phase change process of PCM was investigated with nanoparticles. The enhanced melting and solidification characteristics were reported for the optimized size.
