Title: ACTIVE CRYSTALLISATION CONTROL IN PHASE CHANGE MATERIAL THERMAL STORAGE SYSTEMS
Abstract:
The present invention relates to phase-change materials (PCM) which store and release thermal energy by undergoing melt/crystallisation cycles. More particularly, there is described a thermal storage system where sub-cooled phase change material (PCM) is nucleated via a controlled thermal region(s).
