Energy management of double layers shape-stabilized phase change materials wallboard in office building

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • A novel wallboard with double layers shape-stabilized phase change materials (SSPCMs) for year round

    energy management was proposed. Its energy saving potential in five typical climate regions of China was

    studied. One office room integrated with double layers SSPCMs wallboard was used for simulation platform.

    The other normal office room with the same envelope and just without double layers SSPCMs wallboard

    was used as reference room. Studies were conducted to investigate the energy saving potential of double

    layers SSPCMs wallboard in five cities representing five typical climate regions of China, including severe

    cold region, cold region, hot summer and cold winter region, hot summer and warm winter region, mild

    region. The optimal melting temperature and corresponding thickness of SSPCMs wallboard in five

    representative cities were given when the energy saving potential reached maximal value. It concluded that

    the optimal melting temperature of internal SSPCM layer was effected by indoor air temperature and the

    optimal melting temperature of external SSPCM layer was effected by outdoor solar air temperature. The

    regularity of optimal values in the five representative cities were given for reference in this scope.
