Energy storage systems are a key technology for developing a more sustainable energy supply system and lowering overall CO2 emissions. Among the variety of storage technologies, high temperature phase change material (PCM) storage is a promising option with a wide range of applications. PCM storages using an extended finned tube storage concept have been designed and techno-economically optimized for solar thermal power plant operations. These finned tube components were experimentally tested in order to validate the optimized design and simulation models used. Analysis of the charging and discharging characteristics of the storage at the pilot scale gives insight into the heat distribution both axially as well as radially in the storage material, thereby allowing for a realistic validation of the design. The design was optimized for discharging of the storage, as this is the more critical operation mode in power plant applications. The data show good agreement between the model and the experiments for discharging.
