  • Phase Change Material (PCM)

  • KULI-System

    Phase change material can store a high amount of energy due to its very high thermal inertia. This energy can e.g. used for a fast engine warm-up, to provide cooling performance in the HVAC system (evaporator) while no compressor is available, … 

    The high amount of enthalpy for the phase change is modeled by changing the point masses cp value (thermal capacity) during the melting / solidification process. 

    The heat transfer to the PCM element depends on the amount of mass flow. By adding an additional medium component and a calculation controller, a speed / volume flow dependency can be modeled.
