Paper Title:
New Method to Characterize Phase Change Materials
  Abstract

A method for thermodynamic characterization of shape-stabilized PCM based on onesingle sample and one-single experiment has been proposed. The simplicity of the experimental device is comparable to that of the T-History method. However, instead of simple energy balances as in T-History method, a numerical heat transfer model is used to retrieve the whole set of parameters/functions characterizing the PCM from temperature measurements at one-single point within the PCM. An efficient inversion technique has been proposed for that. Its most striking feature is that it allows non-parametric identification of the enthalpy-temperature function in an easy way. Such a function is retrieved by solving a problem of moving sources estimation by inversion of a linear heat conduction model.
