Abstract:

Thermal energy storage by Phase Change Material (PCM) is an effective way of energy storage for later use in many applications. As working of electronics components largely affected by temperature, it is necessary to reduce temperature of electronics components. This paper includes study of different heat sinks matrices containing PCM, fins and copper particles. Four matrices have been used. These are: Test section without fins without Cu particles, Test section without fins with Cu particles, Test section with fins without Cu particles and Test section with fins with Cu particles. Results indicated that analysis of heat capacity and thermal conductance evidence that a fin PCM filled heat sink with Cu particle has maximum heat capacity and thermal conductance. Also A uniform temperature distribution is found between heat sink and PCM (paraffin wax) which ensures equally melt fraction of PCM in spatial direction.
