Research and Application of Thermal Storage with Phase Change Materials
The types and characteristics of phase change energy storage materials were introduced ，and the current research of thermal storage with PCMS is summarized in the paper. Meanwhile the influence of stability, corrosion, phase segregation, sub-cooling, and encapsulation of phase change materials on heat storage were presented also. The applications and prospects of PCMS used in many fields were summarized in the end of the paper.
