Advanced phase change material (APCM) is a substance with high heat fusion which, melts and solidifies at a specific temperature, it is capable of storing and releasing a large amount of energy. Heat is absorbed and released when material changes from solid to liquid or vice versa. An ideal PCM has high heat fusion, high thermal conductivity, high specific heat and density, long-term reliability during repeated cycling, and dependable freezing behavior. The temperature ranges offered by advanced phase-change materials technology are medium and high-temperature energy storage applications for building services and refrigeration engineers.

The scope of this thermal energy application is wide-ranging solar heating, hot water, and heating rejection, i.e., cooling tower and dry cooler circuitry thermal energy storage applications. Advanced phase change materials perform best in small containers. Therefore they are usually divided into cells. The packaging material conducts heat well, and it is durable enough to withstand frequent changes in the storage material’s volume as phase changes occur. The commonly used PCMs are salt hydrates, fatty acids and esters, and paraffin such as octadecane. Ionic liquids were investigated as original PCM in recent developments. Paraffin waxes are the most common PCM for electronics thermal management because they have a high heat of fusion per unit weight, large melting point selection, provide dependable cycling, are non-corrosive, and are chemically inert.
