Fundamental models of PCM properties and behaviour
- Elaborate numerical models representing the thermodynamic, chemical and behavioural properties of selected PCMs suited for low-temperature applications.
Advanced designs of PCM-TES units
- Develop reliable, experimentally validated designs of durable PCM-TES units with high heat transfer rates and high storage capacity.
Dynamic system models and integration
- Determine the best technical solutions for integration of PCM-TES in selected industrial processes and optimize the corresponding PCM-TES unit designs through dynamic system modelling.
Experimental pilots testing
- Design and build lab-scale pilots of the optimized PCM-TES units and carry out measurement campaigns to validate the simulation results under varying thermal loads.
