Latent heat storage systems

Material selection

Depending on their composition, PCMs work in a narrow temperature range. This provides both an advantage and disadvantage. On the one hand this enables large amounts of heat to be stored without changing the temperature; on the other hand the special storage capability is only utilised if the melt temperature is passed through. Depending on the application, this requires different materials and precise planning.
