WHOLE YEAR ANALYSIS OF TIM-PCM SOLAR THERMAL STORAGE WALL

Dariusz Heim

Abstract: Building elements with ability to adaptation to changeable external conditions is preferable in passive solar systems. Phase change material (PCM) with almost isothermal change of phase combining with transparent insulation (TIM) can be successfully used as a highly efficient, external wall system, so-called intelligent facade". This paper details the numerical modeling and simulation of TIM-PCM passive solar storage system with ESP-r. This partition consists of 25cm of ceramic composite modified by PCM
