Description

Applications of PCM-to-air heat exchangers (PAHXs) were discussed in literature for free cooling application due to their latent thermal storage abilities. This paper aims to justify the generalization of a numerical model of PAHX and to compare the thermal performance of two different configurations of PAHX system. A generalized numerical model is developed and validated based on general apparent heat capacity method. The validation results show good agreement of the generalized approach in terms of averaged error with the experimental data. Model potential and limitations are discussed, and further recommendations are proposed to improve model accuracy. The paper ensures the significant potential of a PAHX ventilated façade configuration in free cooling applications.
