About this book

Introduction

Latent heat storage with phase change materials (PCM) has the potential to improve significantly the efficiency of heat and cold storages and to reduce their size considerably. The book is an introduction into the field for researchers and students. It summarizes and explains the basics, general concepts, and applications with examples in a single text. For a better understanding, many derivations, graphs and tables are included. All aspects from materials analysis and modification, storage design, storage integration, and different application examples are covered. Special focus is on applications in buildings.
