Thermal Performance and Optimization of Paraffin Wax as a Phase Changing Materials (PCM)-Based Heat Sink with Internal Fins Using Ansys: An Experimental Analysis Approach
The disparity among the energy requirements and supplies influences various forms of high-tech technological advancements. Thereby a similar concern is particularly significant or pertinent for energy storage frameworks; illustrative paradigmatic exemplars incorporates radiant solar-powered energy usage, internal thermo-electric power production, consolidated cooling, warming and electrical-power grid network framework and air-conditioned. The primarily objective is to utilize the paraffin wax as a phase changing material (PCM) in order to store internal heat-resisting thermic energy and also to utilize the heat of transformation (i.e., latent heat) for a state/phase shift transition, generally amongst the most part between the solid and liquidity flowable phase. This present study emphasis on the analysis of phase change material (PCM) paraffin wax as heat storage system with body provided with fins which is placed at various angular positions as 0°, 15°, 30° and 45° respectively using ANSYS.
