Title: THERMAL BARRIER AND INNER HEAT-STORAGE ELEMENT
Abstract:
The invention relates to thermal management aimed at maintaining the temperature inside a space (9). The proposed assembly includes said space and a device arranged around same, placed in an outdoor environment (7) exposed to a non-constant temperature and including at least one thermally insulating element (19) inserted between the inner space and the outdoor environment and, from the inside towards the outside: an inner heat-storage element (13a) made of PCM material and an outer thermal barrier (13b) containing a plurality of PCMs. The invention also allows for means (21) for provisionally providing, in said inner space (9), a charge fluid, at least at a temperature that is different from those of the temperature to be maintained, in thermal exchange with said PCM of the inner element (13a), so as to store thermal energy.
