Study Of Phase Change Property Of Sodium Acetate Trihydrate As Energy Storage Material
Jul 06, 2018

Sodium acetate trihydrate (CH3COONa•3H2O) has been studied as PCM by many researchers because of its large latent heat of fusion which makes it attractive as a latent heat storage material. Its melting temperature makes it suitable for applications such as solar energy storage for domestic hot water. However, there are two main problems about CH3COONa•3H2O which are supercooling and phase segregation during the phase change. This paper studies mainly about the energy storage property of CH3COONa•3H2O with the addition of nucleating agents and thickeners under continuous melting and thawing.
