    Co-Authors: Muhammad Amin, Nandy Putra, Erwin Prawiro, Teuku Meurah Indra Mahlia, Engkos Achmad Kosasih, Rizky Achmad Luanto

    Abstract:

    Abstract Increased energy consumption in buildings is a worldwide issue. This research is concerned with the implementation of a phase change material for thermal storage. This concept has gained great attention as a solution to reduce energy consumption in buildings. Beeswax, which is a phase change material with a high thermal capacity, is investigated in this research. This paper is intended to measure and analyze the thermal properties of Beeswax/graphene as a phase change material. The melting temperature, thermal capacity and latent heat were determined using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), and the thermal conductivity was investigated using a thermal conductivity measurement apparatus. To discover the change in the physical properties due to the effect of nanoparticles, the viscosity of the material was investigated as well. Based on the result from the DSC, the latent heat of 0.3 wt% Beeswax/graphene increased by 22.5%. The thermal conductivity of 0.3 wt% Beeswax/graphene was 2.8 W/m K. The existence of graphene nanoplatelets enhanced both the latent heat and thermal conductivity of the Beeswax. Therefore, based on this result, Beeswax/graphene is concluded to have the potential to reduce energy consumption in buildings.

  • thermal properties of Beeswax cuo nano phase change material used for thermal energy storage
    International Journal of Technology, 2016
    Co-Authors: Nandy Putra, Erwin Prawiro, Muhammad Amin

    Abstract:

    Experimentation on and implementation of phase-change materials for thermal storage is attracting increasing attention by those seeking a potential resolution to energy issues. This study investigates Beeswax as a high thermal-capacity phase-change material with the objective of analyzing the thermal properties and behaviors of Beeswax/CuO nano-PCM. The study uses differential scanning calorimetry apparatus to measure the melting temperature and thermal capacity of nano-PCMs. The study found nano-PCM melting temperatures of 63.62°C, 63.59°C, 63.66°C, 63.19°C, and 62.45°C at 0.05, 0.1, 0.15, 0.2, and 0.25 wt%, respectively. FTIR testing found no chemical reaction between CuO and Beeswax. The existence of CuO nanoparticles enhanced thermal conductivity of Beeswax but reduced its heat capacity. However, the change in latent heat caused no significant effects in the performance of Beeswax/CuO. Thus, the results showed that heat transfer of composite Beeswax/CuO melts faster than base phase-change material.

    Abstract:

    Experimentation on and implementation of phase-change materials for thermal storage is attracting increasing attention by those seeking a potential resolution to energy issues.
