  • Phase Change Material (PCM) is particularly attractive due to its ability to provide high-energy storage density per unit mass in quasi-isothermal process.PCM Thermal Energy Storage (TES) device can effectively store thermal energy and maintain the temperature of electronic components in spacecraft.Two thermal energy storage devices filled with eicosane (C20) are presented.One is impregnated in carbon foams and the other is impregnated in copper foams.Numerical simulations of phase change process environment are performed by FLUENT software.The temperature distribution and solid-liquid phase interface changes are obtained.The results show that the temperature rising speed of heat source surface is reduced due to the high thermal conductive of Foam Composite Phase Change Material (FCPCM).FCPCM also could reduce the influence of gravity change on to thermal transfer.The results provide the scientific basis for the engineering application of FCPCM in microgravity.
